It’s that time of year again, when people defile perfectly serviceable gourds and wear more make-up than Ru Paul, all in a never-ending hunt for diabetes. Yes, Halloween is back, and so is Sean Hoen/White Gold Scorpio with another Misfits cover! This year: American Nightmare, a song that as a more than 20 year fan of the band I now realize I never knew the actual words to. Also a personal favorite, oddly enough, as it really was a great combination of punk, rockabilly, goth/horror, and Danzig’s obsession with Elvis Presley (plus, not to harp on it too much, but the number of hours I kept rewinding my Legacy cassette, trying to figure out the words…do people still do that in the internet age?).
Your holiday message from Sean:
Dead Fiends,At the last minute, Dan and I were bullied into recording the annual Halloween jingle. We tracked it yesterday in Dan’s new Brooklyn living room–– a cover of The Misfits 1979 “American Nightmare.” It’s a deep cut from the Legacy of Brutality album. The original is, as always, far superior, so look it up if you want the real thing.Hope all is well.Love,SeanBTW, Dan and I have an ongoing project called White Gold Scorpio. You can download our debut collection of home-recorded songs here: http://whitegoldscorpio.com/epk.php
Here’s another great single from Shipbuilding’s newest release “From Mansions to Dry Lake Beds” out later this month. We’re very excited about this song. Salt Creek is a bit like taking a trip back in time…to the days of gold mining, and moonshine, and drunken tavern piano playing done beautifully. Enjoy! And, if you want, pre-order the album via the link below. http://www.greydayproductions.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_55

Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun are pretty much constantly on tour, so keep checking our tour dates section for dates…
It’s that time of year again!
The seventh-annual Halloween mishap arrives on time. This year, a synth-campy cover of “Don’t Fear the Reaper” (as featured in the 1978 film Halloween) with a late showing of Danzig’s “Killer Wolf.” As always with Danzig/Misfits songs, it was far too late before I realized the perverse, insidious message lurking within the lyrics. That said, my neighbors enjoyed the howls, I’m sure. All this recorded poorly in a Brooklyn bedroom, listen for the traffic. Cover photo by Tyler Blakeslee, inside his MI garage. Mp3 Attached.
Dan Jaquint played drums. He and I have a newish project called White Gold Scorpio.
Have a great season, and send pictures of your costumes.
