So as Mike so recently reminded me, it’s the Scare Festival tonight. Not really feeling it this year with Parents not being well, job stuff etc….but heh!
I am going to present both sides of Hallowe’en. The Fun and The Dark.
Whodini – Haunted House Of Rock (US 12″)
From 1983 and going overboard on the sound effects, Whodini uses a super-catchy horror-cheese synth-line with a real bass. It sounds a bit Human League in places.
The Haunted Mix has some quite eerie effects, spooky dub lifted from the middle of the extended version. The Vocoder Version replaces all rap with a throaty vocoder chant.
A DJ friendly Accapella version will entice any DJ to get experimental.

Ministry – Stigmata (Remix) (US 12″)
From 1988 and Not that bloody crap Ministry track (Everday “Is Hallowe’en) “Stigmata” is a terrifying, industrial monster. Trent Reznor must of heard this, with the repetitive rifts and deranged screamed vocals amidst a waves of distortion and feedback.
“Tonight We Murder” is even more of a Hallowe’en themed track. Slower and moodier and horrifying.
