Soundtrack or Treat: A Halloween Mixtape

I used to regularly bother bars and parties playing willfully quirky selections of other peoples records mixed badly, something that ceased to be a unique selling point somewhere around the late nineties. I don't do this very often any more, except on the occasional aurally-masochistic request.

As a result, I have started making mixtapes again. This, along with my recent return to comics and loud and lousy bedroom guitar, is entirely symptomatic of my recent college-era geek regression. I plan to blog about the latter soon, but I haven't had much time to write recently. Instead, in celebration of the Halloween season, please accept the following mash up of horror soundtracks and other spooky seasonal treats, featuring guest appearances from John Carpenter, Burt Bacharach, Biz Markie and the long awaited meeting of Goblin with the Goblin King!

I'll be back soon, but in the meantime please visit my friends at the really good Garageland Magazine arts and culture blog where I've just guest posted on Bergman's Seventh Seal.

Happy Hallowe'en!
