‘I’m Normal!’

Well, as time is finally opening up in my ‘schedule’ – god, that’s just such a weird phrase for me to use! – I’ve gotten around to compile my second mix for my MixcloudI’m Normal! 21 Deliciously Delirious Ditties of Dementia! (yeah, I’ve got this thing for punny Cryptkeeper-esque titles.) Audio surrealism is the theme of this one, and we’re talking songs that are beyond ‘novelty’. Among others we’ve got The Emperor‘s title track (released as an answer song to the cult classic They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha ha), Don Howard‘s oddity ballad Oh, Happy Day, and the I-guarantee-you most anemic cover version of The Trashmen‘s classic Surfin’ Bird ever heard! Plus, one track that’s guaranteed to piss off even the biggest fan of bad puns – even I have trouble standing it!

Anyway, I’m in the middle of audio clean-up right now (I actually sequenced this in 2012) and I’d say it’ll be roughly a month before it’s released online. Until then you’re free to give my previous Halloween-themed mix The Haunted House of Horror’s Horrific Halloween Twist-a-Rama! a spin here (also available via YouTube), and how about a taste of the title track?


(Horrific) Sounds of X-Mas

December 7, 2012

Well, as both a horror fan and total music nerd, what could be more fitting for today’s X-Mas tune than The Cryptkeeper‘s We Wish You’d Bury the Missus? Anyone remember the cult classic Tales From the Crypt tv-series where this little fella delivered tasty puns in between some pretty cool episodes? Well, I was a big fan back then, and even though it never aired over here me and a friend collected bootleg seasonal tapes on VHS, so we followed it – albeit a bit delayed.

I recently picked up a season DVD, and even though some of the fashions haven’t aged too well (to say the least!) it was still quite enjoyable and nice in a nostalgic kinda way.
