A Recollection:

Something Wicked This Way Comes Movie Poster

When I was a kid, I was fascinated by scary movies. I have no idea why. It might have been because of the often fantastical elements of such films; I’ve always had vivid dreams, and certain kinds of scary films have a surrealistic quality which appealed to me, even as a kid. That, and I liked that spine-tingling feeling of anticipating the dreadful unknown.

And yet, I wasn’t allowed to watch many scary movies. I had seen the movie “Poltergeist” the year it was released (1982). I was six, and I became kind of obsessed with the film, and terrified of my closet at night. My parents thus limited what scary movies I was allowed to see.

New Music: Cain and the Fireboys (full demo)

We awaken! With new music! Here’s a song bound for our third LP, which we’re hoping to release in late 2021. It’s been hard to make forward progress on the album throughout 2020, for a number of reasons — many of which are obvious, some of which are not so obvious. But we’ve got 7 full-band tracks more-or-less in the can, with an 8th under construction. I’ve been writing and recording demos for all the others. And while it might have been preferable to release one of the full-band tracks at this point, this demo for “Cain and the Fireboys” is pretty sweet, and has a certain timeliness about it which justifies putting it out there ASAP. Click the link, enjoy, and be excited for our forthcoming LP. It’ll be a wild one!
