“One man’s garbage is another man’s gold”
”Or as the world’s greatest Rock’n’Roll band puts it, “Your Trash, My Treasure”. Here is a goldmine of garbage dug deep from the dump. Unwanted one-non-hit blunders from the bowels of the 50s & 60s. Put on your gloves, clamp a clothespin on your nose and prepare for a VISIT TO HECK!”
Yo peoples! Here are some real funny and sick shit for a change. Check out some stoopeed dance hits as Steve & The Holidays ”Unemployment”, ”Irving Gluck Twist” or suicide hit single Ralph Smedley’s Suffocate/Drown – ”You feel great when you suffocate, You lose weight when you suffocate…” Dig!!!
”Not much is known about Baron Daemon & The Vampires. From 1962-1967, Daemon was a Horror Movie Host around Syracuse, NY. His single “Transylvania Twist” / “Ghost Guitars” from 1963 was the best selling local single of all time. Baron Daemon’s days hosting horror movies came to an end once parents started complaining that their children would not go to sleep until they saw him. He was then given an afternoon program so kids had a chance to see him. “Ghost Guitars” features the horror theme that was so true to Baron. This horrifying song has become extremely difficult to find, sold at an incredibly expensive price.” [http://psychedelicized.com]
Yep boys & gals, it’s not Halloween… not yet, but this little 1963. 7” horror/novelty gem caught my ear. You could hear it on The Big Itch Vol.5 and Psychedelic Archaeology Vol.10. By the way, Baron Daemon resembles one of the neighbours from my early childhood [those spooky bushy eyebrows :-)]
Two 60’s novelty/lounge/horror slabs by arranger, and composer, Milton Delugg, best-remembered for score of the cult kiddie movie, ”Santa Claus Conquers the Martians”and his bandleading on Chuck Barris’ notorious game show, “The Gong Show.”
”At The Monster Ball” [as THE VAMPIRES] is in the R&B/Surf/Lounge instro style with funny horror dialogues [similar to Frankie Stein & His Ghouls
], while ”Music For Monsters…” is more in Lounge/Jazz/Film score mode.
Calling all Munsters… Dig!!!
