Fanatic! A fantastic list of songs we have lined up for you. I think most of our contributors are known to you at this point.

The Kid Congo single is great! You can find it here.

Here's info on the single from the site:

Spider Baby / Apple in the Razor Blade
We are proud to announce the first in what we hope will be an ongoing series of 7-inch records celebrating the only holiday that matters. Kid Congo kicks the series off in grand style tackling the theme song to the movie Spider Baby (originally sung by Lon Chaney Jr.) and a very creepy instrumental. Pressed on beautiful black and orange splatter vinyl, housed in a ghoulish sleeve designed by Igor and pressed in an edition of 666. The A-side, "Spider Baby," is a cover of a movie theme song originally sung by Lon Chaney Jr. Apparently Kid was given a cassette of the song by Siouxsie Sioux when he was in The Cramps as she felt they should cover it. Apparently it was considered then forgotten. Kid got around to doing it 36 years later.


As per the usual, I've been listening to the show all the way through one last time and I believe we are top to bottom good to go.

This is our last October show. I hope you feel that we did the month justice.

Celebrate wisely and STAY FANATIC!!!
