Mr. Wind-up Bird’s Halloween Mix

October 26, 2007

Well, that was a little harder than expected. It turns out that I have many songs with spooky themes. Unfortunately most of them are deeply mediocre. What’s below is the best of the rest, minus a couple of tracks already selected by ad hoc and Not Me, Boss.

Cover and mailout to follow when I get my arse in gear.

OTF Halloween Mix:

1. Congo Drummers of the Societe Absolument Guinin

2. Voodoo Ray A Guy Called Gerald

3. Bat Macumba Gilberto Gil

4. The Gorgon Speaks Cornell Campbell

5. Gorgon Sound Horsepower Productions

6. Ghost Dance Prince Buster

7. I Was a Teenage Werewolf The Cramps

8. Plague of Zombies Scientist

9. At Midnight T-Connection

10. Horror Business The Misfits

11. Burial of Long Shot The Prince of Darkness

12. The Phantom Renegade Soundwave

13. I Don’t Care About You Fear

14. I Put a Spell On You Screamin’ Jay Hawkins

15. Ghost Rider Suicide

16. Blood and Fire Niney The Observer

17. Lavender Coffin Joe Thomas

18. In The Midnight Hour Moloko

19. Fearless Vampire Killers Bad Brains

20. Testone Sweet Exorcist

21. Bad Touch Example Company Flow

22. Shadow Boxing Doc Scott

It starts with your actual Haitian voodoo drummers from the (imaginatively named) Soul Jazz CD “Voodoo Drums” and closes with Shadow Boxing (because it sounds creepy). It’s fairly obvious why most of the others are included but I stretched the theme to include songs about the witching hour.

The .rar mp3 files are just over 100MB, so they are split into two files: part one and part two.

Hope you enjoy.


  1. Cheers for touching on some of my alltime favorites in this mix! Horsepower (LOVE that tune), Cornell Campbell, Cramps, Suicide, Niney, Doc Scott and my own hometown heroes Bad Brains. Well done.
