Transmission 1909

"Tonight is the night when pumpkins stare,

Through sheaves and leaves everywhere.

When ghouls and ghost and goblin host,

Dance round their Queen.

It's Hallowe'en!"

Halloween is not a safe night for "wirgins", but knowing the extended RFW family, I don't think we'll have to worry about that - so spark up the candle in the old jack-o-lantern, turn out the lights and and dig this monstrous set of tunes from Dead Kennedys, The Turtles, Bo Diddley, Vic Mizzy, Ted Cassidy, The Crystals, Rick Derringer, Brain Donor, The Vulcans, Woggles, Roky Erickson, The Moontrekkers, Arctic Monkeys and Wendy Carlos. Fang-tastic!

T1909 is a 59.4mb 128k mp3 1:04:53 in length made loud to be played loud!

"cause all you people are vampires""

* The opening rhyme is an excerpt from the poem "Hallowe'en" by Harry Behn.

** Our Halloween picture is Udo Kier from "Blood For Dracula", the 1974 film directed by Paul Morrison and produced by Andy Warhol and Andrew Braunsbergg. Enjoy a few favorite scenes!





** Ted Cassidy played Lurch, the family butler on The Addams Family TV series. His dance craze "The Lurch" was sweeping the country in 1965 (not so fast...he hasn't swept the kitchen yet) - here's Ted on Shiveree!



***One of the funniest episodes of The Addams Family was "Lurch, The Teenage Idol"!
