S&R’s Scariest Halloween Videos 2017

A collection of terrifying music and videos for the spookiest night of the year…

Happy Samhain. Errr, Halloween. Let’s get the frightfest under way with the definitive Halloween band, shall we?

White Zombie: “I’m Your Boogieman”

Boy, you really had to see these guys live.

Seraphim Shock: “After Dark”

One of my favorite Goth bands of all time.

Switchblade Symphony: “Clown”

Another band you have to see in concert.

The Birthday Massacre: “Looking Glass”

And now this from S&R’s good friends, Fiction  8.

Fiction 8: “Let Go”

Can’t have Halloween without Ozzy, can we? (I was going to play “Shot in the Dark” but for some reason the video doesn’t seem to be online anywhere. Maybe they banned it after it scared Tipper Gore to death.)

Ozzy Osbourne: “I Just Want You”

Yeah, this one goes without saying.

Metallica: “Enter Sandman”

One of the more riveting, grotesque moments in video history.

Tool: “Sober”

So many to choose from here.

Nine Inch Nails: “Wish”

Celldweller is actually something of a Christian band, but they’re not afraid of the dark.

Celldweller: “Switchback”

We’ll close with the obligatory Halloween party tune.

Oingo Boingo: “Dead Man’s Party”

Y’all be safe out there tonight.

If we were vampires: Jason Isbell’s new CD is superb – Saturday Video Roundup

Breathtaking. Heartbreaking. Life-affirming. In other words, exactly what you’d expect from one of this generation’s greatest talents. #SVR

I’ve played The Nashville Sound to death since its release. It’s beginning to feel like Jason Isbell always has another gear.

First, the new video. We don’t have long here, folks. One day you’ll be gone. One day I’ll be gone.

Saturday Video Roundup: Mash The Beatles

It’s amazing how many really cool mashups seem to incorporate The Beatles. Or maybe that isn’t amazing at all. I mean, they were the freakin’ Beatles. Anyway, I know we’ve done this theme before, but best I can tell, it ain’t broke, so I ain’t fixing it.

Here’s The Fabs and Queen doing one of my favorite tunes off of their blockbuster album, Jazzey Road, “Fat Bottom Girls Come Together.”

Also, this is a rare outtake from those same sessions.

Many of you probably never knew that The Beatles collaborated with Bob Marley.


Meet The Zepples.

Finally, have you ever wondered what The Beatles would have been like if they’d had David Lee Roth as their singer?

Saturday Video Roundup: New music of interest in early 2k13

It’s way too early in the year to be talking best of, especially since we’re anticipating 2013 releases from some of our favorite artists (like Jeffrey Dean Foster, for instance, and The Lost Patrol, to name another). But there is some new tuneage out already that we’re digging on. So for your ArtsWeek SVR, have a listen.

Up first, Bear in Heaven, a band than I’m guessing owns at least a couple of Pet Shop Boys CDs.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge Eels fan. E and the boys are back with a new one that’s a bit of a departure in some respects. I’m still trying to get my head around it, and while I do, here’s “New Alphabet.”

One more from a band I have just discovered, The Capsules.

Happy Saturday, and Happy ArtsWeek. Go have fun.

Saturday Video Roundup: Who ya gonna call?

Happy Saturday, kiddies, and welcome back to another exciting episode of SVR! Today, let’s see if you can guess the theme.

Up first – I’ve heard of “gangbusters,” but “Gangnambusters” is a new one.

Next: In retrospect, it’s hard to understand why they didn’t do it this way in the first place.

Finally, the only thing wrong here is that they didn’t do a video.

That’s a wrap. Everybody have a nice weekend, and hey – be careful out there.

Hey, Jets Overhead – pick me! And Ronan!

Jets Overhead has an interesting little social media promotion running.

Upload a photo of you telling the world what you really want… If selected, your photo will then appear in the music video for “What You Really Want” which will premiere here in October 2012.

On a sheet of paper, write down what you really want. Be honest.

Have a friend take a hi-res photo of you holding the paper.

Enter all the info below and upload your photo.

So I’m entering, with the help of my trusty sidekick Ronan. Here’s my pic:

I’m pretty sure we’re going to be famous. Meanwhile, check out the video for the lead single, Boredom and Joy, which is fantastic. Then go listen to the CD. Then maybe buy it, because JO is one of the best bands going.

Happy Saturday.
