Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2006

Hello all.

It’s still not too late to grab (or just listen to) some cool Halloween or creepy-themed music.
Scar Stuff is still your one-stop shopping place for Novelty Halloween records and spooky stuff.
Right now he’s featuring a few albums I’ve wanted for some time. One is the great Horrific Child “L’Étrange Monsieur Whinster” that is on Stephen Stapleton’s infamous NWW list. It’s a wonderfully creepy Frog-Rock horror masterpiece. Another is the Creed Taylor series (Shock!, Panic!) and Kenyon Hopkins (Nightmare!) – a couple of incredibly strange selections that have been in and out of print for eons, but another great schlocky find is Forry Ackerman’s Music For Robots. Nice. I think he was still selling this 1950’s robot themed album in 1970’s issues of Famous Monsters of Filmland.
Go visit Scar Stuff soon as he’s about to go into post-Halloween hibernation.

Kathy of the amazing KBOO radio program The Autonomy Hour (alternating Thursday evenings at 12:00 AM on 90.7 FM in the Portland area) wants to let us know that SomaFM is streaming scary, dark-themed music for our holiday. I listened to it for most of my otherwise dreary workday and it really was great. It darkened my end of the quad and lifted my spirits simultaneously. Safe for most players.

Ninah has pointed out a cool mix of Halloween music that you may either download or play via Flash. I did a little of both. From our fine friends at Oddio Overplay. Check it out here.
