Two Spookernatural Tracks From the CNQ Vinyl Vault of Horrors!

Composer Hans J. Salter was born in Vienna in 1896, studied music there and had a career in Berlin and Vienna before coming to America after the Nazis came to power in Europe. Hired by Universal in 1937, Salter made a career of scoring films of various genres, but horror movies became his particular forte, having scored more Universal horror flicks during their Golden Age than anyone else. "The Ghost of Frankenstein" is his first major one, but he also did The Creature From the Black Lagoon, The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Mole People, and many others. 1942's "The Ghost of Frankenstein" starred Lon Chaney Jr. as the Monster, and Bela Lugosi as Ygor. As of this writing, Bela Lugosi remains dead. This track, "Monster Kidnaps Child," is from Side B of a limited edition LP, "The Ghost of Frankenstein: The Complete Classic Film Score Composed and Conducted by Hans J. Salter," put out in 1979 and produced in association with Salter Music Pub…

International Rock'n'Roll Mixtape: 8 New Songs from Around the World

Lately, my posts featuring new music have turned into a bit of a broken record - new, cool tunes, but most of 'em from the same bands and labels I follow on Bandcamp and/or get email updates from. So tonight, here's some rad new sounds from bands I've never heard before. A lot of them are from overseas and I think that's the tops, man, bless this internet. These are all from today's new arrivals in the Bandcamp punk genre, and the theme is quick blasts of male-vocal punk, mostly garage-style and mostly lo-fi, but there's some hardcore and crusty stuff thrown in too. If that's your thing, enjoy! Otherwise, you know, I guess you shouldn't bother listening: From Paris, France: EP by BACON FUDGEFrom Barcelona: Silverback by AlimentFrom Kunchukokhabl', Russia: SOMETHING TO SURVIVE by THE FABULOUS FAIRIESFrom Reykjavik, Iceland: Dr. Gunni í sjoppu by Dr. GunniFrom Oslo, Norway: 6 TRÆKK ATÆKK DEMO CS by Internt OppgjørFrom Cincinnati: Fuck…
