about

My initial plan was to make an entire album of twisted children's songs based upon lullabies and nursery rhymes. Taking those songs and nursery rhymes and adding my own unique bizarre macabre twist to them and gearing this release as being a HALLOWEEN SEASON soundtrack for the disturbed. (Who knows maybe one day I will do it - but for now this demo will have to do...)

Being a huge fan of bands like THE CRAMPS and Gothabilly and surf punk music as well as old school classic Gothic Rock like BAUHAUS, and even a little bit of a cross-over swing. I wrote these songs with that very influenced style and sound in mind - utilizing clean guitars and bass and doing what I call "Lurch vocals" - based off of the character Lurch - portrayed by character actor:Ted Cassidy from original THE ADDAMS FAMILY T.V. show.
I guess I could "coin a phrase" by calling my style "DEATHABILLY".

This 2 track {Demo/Promo version} is now available here as a sort of beta test.

Track Name: Lullabies For Lunatic Children/The Hearse Song
Don't you ever laugh as the hearse goes by,
For you may be the next one to die.
They wrap you up in big white sheets
and cover you from head to feet.
They put you in a big black box
And cover you with dirt and rocks.
And all goes well for about a week,
Until your coffin begins to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.
A big green worm with rolling eyes
Crawls in your stomach and eats out your sides.
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.
You'll spread it on a slice of bread,
And that's what you eat when you are dead
Track Name: Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater
Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
Had a wife but couldn't keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well.
Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
Had another and didn't love her;
Peter learned to read and spell,
And then he loved her very well
Track Name: Itsy Bitsy Spider
Itsy Bitsy...
Spider

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the waterspout.
Down came the rain
and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
and dried up all the rain
and the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.

The itsy bitsy spider
The itsy bitsy spider
The itsy bitsy spider
The itsy bitsy -

Spider - the spider - spider
Spider - the spider -
Itsy Bitsy Spider.

Oh, the blooming, bloody spider went up the spider web,
The blooming, bloody rain came down and washed the spider out,
The blooming, bloody sun came out and dried up all the rain,
And the blooming, bloody spider came up the web again.

Ascending - descending - ascending
Ascending - descending - ascending
Ascending - descending - ascending
Ascending - descending - ascending

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the waterspout.
Down came the rain
and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
and dried up all the rain
and the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.

He climbed up the spout
he got washed out
Climbed back up
Got washed right back down...
Track Name: Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Together again... together again - they couldn't put him back together again!
Together again... together again - they couldn't put him back together again!
Humpty Dumpty - he's all broken!
Oh - Humpty Dumpty - he's all broken!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
Four-score Men and Four-score more,
Couldn't make Humpty Dumpty the way he was before!

Humpty Dumpty lay in a beck.
With his sinews around his neck;
Forty Doctors and forty wrights
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty to rights

Together again... together again - they couldn't put him back together again!
Together again... together again - they couldn't put him back together again!
Humpty Dumpty - he's all broken!
Oh - Humpty Dumpty - he's all broken!
