A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #279: Trick AND Treat
October 31, 2016 @ 8:00pm
It was a Halloween sPoOkTacUlaR show tonight. I'm not much on holiday themes, but something about this aprticular holiday inspires me to go the extra mile. You can't say that John Hell ever phones it in!
Tonight features some of my favorite spooky treats, along with two new tunes from two of my favorite ladies. Phat Man Dee sent me a track that is perfectly scary as well as apropos for the 2016 election cycle. If you don't get the willies from "Fourth Reich Rising" then perhaps you're dead already. Good for you!
Queen delphine has been building up her stage chops for a couple of years now and this Cramps cover has certainly shown that she's not too shy to put a bug in your ear (oh good lord will the puns ever stop?). "Human Fly" is will put a buzz in your ear and make you think twice before you pull out that can of Raid. Eric McFadden on guitar.
The rest of the show is full of horror movie themes, spooky spoken word, and very dark magic. It's just what Hell ordered.
The holidays are officially upon us, and the election is just days away. Time to run screaming!
