E33: Christian Death - Valor Kand Era Part 1

We've finally started our discussion on the Valor Kand era of Christian Death. After Rozz William's departure, Kand took over leading the group and fronts it till this day. Kand is known for his strong opinions and even stirred up a decent amount of controversy during his time as frontman, but do these releases stand up now? It seems that less people are as familiar with the Christian Death releases provided by Kand so hopefully we can shed some light on these possibly forgotten classics. We take a look a Atrocities (1986), The Scriptures (1987), Sex and Drugs and Jesus Christ (1988), and All the Love All the Hate Parts 1 and 2 (1989).

E32: And Also the Trees

This episode we take a look at a more obscure band, And Also the Trees. Although they do have a following, they are certainly not a band that’s frequently discussed. Consequently, we felt it would be interesting to discuss their career, especially considering their ties to The Cure (something we discuss on the episode). In this episode, we review their first four albums, And Also the Trees (1984), Virus Meadow (1986), The Millpond Years (1988), Farewell to the Shade (1989). We hope you enjoy this episode and, as always, stay spooky.

E31: Dracula Films [1931, 1959, 1992]

This week’s episode takes a look at 3 classic Dracula Adaptations, beginning with Dracula (1931), The Horror of Dracula (1959), and Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992). Each film has its own individual style from the suave delivery of Bela Lugosi to the Menacing and campy performance by Christopher Lee or the passionate depiction by Gary Oldman. We discuss what makes each of these films unique and pivotal to the history of Dracula in the World of film.
