Monster Party 2000
This is not just a Halloween party compilation album. This is a must have for anyone who digs on surf, rockabilly, garage bands or just plain wacky music. Scary surf riffs, creepy rockabilly, hardcore punk, grim garage bands, and hellish hot rod tunes make for one killer album, regardless of the season.
The whole CD is a strong comp from the folks at Musick. Deadbolt brings us the necrophiliac tinged "Billy's Dead," a deadpan riff which sets out to inform us that Billy might just be better off in a George Romero movie. Freddy Fortune & The Fore Gone Conclusions sing about hot rod hearses in "Dracula's Deuce," and Satan's Pilgrims bring to life "Frankenstomp". Los Straitjackets, Boss Martians, Space Cossacks, The Bambi Molesters, the Hellbenders' and The Omega Men, among others, are also lurking on this killer comp. A who’s who of modern twang. This baby will rise to your player again and again, to scare off crappy music, like a good monster should.

While you are partying with the monster soundz, why not have a Zombie for yourself. 2 or 3 of these and you will feel like one by the time the music is over. Here's how to get numb --
2 parts white rum
1 part gold rum
1 part Stroh rum (80%)
1 dash Angostura
1 part orange juice
1 part lemon juice
1 part pineapple juice
1 teaspoon sugar
Fill the shaker half with crushed ice, add the three kinds of rum, angostura, juices and shake well.
Strain in a hurricane glass with ice in the bottom.
Garnish with orange and pineapple slices.
Acid cigars go well with the Zombies. Not your traditional cigar, Acids are flavored with over 200 different natural herbs and Asian oils that line the walls of the factory’s Quarto Aromatico (Aroma Room). These are the exotic ingredients that, in the old Cuban tradition are infused into Nicaraguan Cuban-seed fillers and wrappers from the far-flung corners of the world: Ecuador-Sumatra, Nicaragua-Connecticut, Cuban-seed Honduras Maduro, and African Cameroon giving them an unsual spicy taste. I pick up jasmine, lavender and sandal wood. Kind of like incence for your mouth and tongue and nose. They even smell like a tobacco potpourri. For something different, give them a try.
