Hightailing it on the run, folks. Status quo for me, wouldn't you agree?

Hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween. Couldn't have asked for better on my end, though I'm a little sad I was late in the month getting ready for Halloween. Oh well, we all made it count at game time and in the name of Karloff and Carpenter, it was a faboo ghoul night.

Hey Jeff, nice pick with the SLF. I love that album! A lot of people hate the Marley cover on there, but I thought it was cool. "Break Out" still resonates with me! It's such a great punk album.

Grinderman - Grinderman 2
There's a partially confirmed rumor that most men have two heads. With this album Grinderman and Nick Cave have proved that to be a gross exaggeration. These guys have only one. Spoiler alert: It's not on their shoulders. I'm fine with that. This album makes my (one, shoulder-anchored, containing a cerebral cortex) head explode. Coming from a woman, that's the highest possible praise. That it also makes me laugh elevates it further. With the kind of lyrics most bold-face names in rock’n’roll and metal can’t even dream of writing.

Type O Negative - Dead Again
It was Halloween in Heaven the other day, and Saint Peter was there, playing bass for Hendrix with Bonham on drums...

Glenn Danzig -Black Aria
Providing the soundtrack for my novel protagonist's first trip to Hell, and somehow managing to creep the unholy f*** out of me at the same time. I’ll look up at 3 AM, and both my cats have metamorphosed into Horde creatures so sick, they couldn’t even draw them in Japan.

Garbage - Garbage
Estrogen antidote. Trust me. After Grinderman, Saint Peter and Mephistopheles, I need all the help I can get. Shirley Manson’s brand of queer makes me normal,
because that’s the kind of pervert I am.

King Diamond - Give Me Your Soul...Please
Arguably the finest Copenhagen export commodity since certain brands of bacon. (And yours truly!)

Sort Sol - Flow My Firetear
This Danish band had its origins in the punk scene of Copenhagen in the late Seventies. Moody, post-punk, and more than slightly twisted, it’s just what I want to hear in November. As is...

Claude Debussy - Clair de Lune
The Monty Python moment of something Completely Different. The perfect soundtrack for a rainy November afternoon, when melancholy slides down the windowpanes like raindrops, and it’s all good all the same.

cjk, I didn't know Peter Wolf had a new one out. I listened to some of it last night and it's a pretty good album.

bob, wolf's newest has an old-school charm sorely lacking in most efforts. highly recommended for anyone interested a thoroughly well-produced blend of rock and r&b that is equally inspired by other genres.
