Nightmare – Artie Shaw

Nightmare - Artie Shaw

The haunting and morose "Nightmare" by Artie Shaw with artwork by Jérémie Fleury.

Artie Shaw's "Theme" song, the haunting, morose "Nightmare", with its Hasidic nuances, rather than use a more "accessible" song. It was as if Shaw was saying in musical terms that he and his band weren't inviting anyone to dance a la Goodman's "Let's Dance" nor were they getting sentimental over anything, a la Tommy Dorsey's "I'm Gettin' Sentimental Over You". Whatever it was or whether or not there was any deeper meaning to it, Nightmare was a profoundly unique choice for a theme song especially in the face of what virtually every other swing band leader was doing; yet perhaps it did illustrate the deeper search for the meaning of anything in the mind of its intellectually driven composer. ~Wikipedia

Eerie Publications vs Johnson-Smith Novelty Horror Record

Eerie Publications vs Johnson-Smith Novelty Horror Record Eerie Publications vs Johnson-Smith Novelty Horror Record

A parallel universe alliance between Eerie Publications and the 1973 Johnson-Smith Novelty Company "Horror Record." This lurid mess is a short film that made around Halloween of 2010. It marries the audio from what is probably the Worst/Best horror record (mail ordered from a comic book ad) with visuals culled from the crude and gruesome cover art favored by the company that gave me nightmares as a child, Eerie Publications.

This is a song about an old Welsh witch...

"Rhiannon" is a song written by Stevie Nicks and originally recorded by Fleetwood Mac. The song built to a climax in which Nicks' vocals were so impassioned that, as drummer and band co-founder Mick Fleetwood said, "her Rhiannon in those days was like an exorcism.
