There was a point in the early ’90s when the British rock press tried to capitalize on the fleeting success of Green Jellö/Jellÿ by aligning them with fellow L.A. band Haunted Garage, as some sort of SoCal horror-rock scene. Truth is, though, Haunted Garage were always far darker and heavier, despite being bathed in campy B-movie gory glory. Dukey Flyswatter formed the Garage in ’85, with the sole studio album, Possession Park, coming out in ’91 on Metal Blade. There have been a handful of EPs and soundtrack appearances, too, but it’s always been about the live show with these guys. Bathed in blood and surrounded by their signature “gore gore girls” (not Amy Gore’s Detroit band of the same name), the prop-filled live extravaganza is a true experience, and this show, a benefit for Flyswatter (he undergoes brain surgery Dec. 10), should be no different.

With Haunted Garage, The Gitane Demone Quartet, Radioactive Chicken Heads, Fifi, Herbert.
