Mary Shelley Overdrive - New Track From Forthcoming Album - Hear It Here First!

After a bit of a break Morgue favorite Mary Shelley Overdrive are just about ready to unleash their lastest album entitled Penny Dreadful Valentine. And they're doing it one track at a time.

From MSO:

"Welcome to the dedicated website for Mary Shelley Overdrive's second LP, Penny Dreadful Valentine. While most of the work is done, we've got a little bit of recording left to do on the album.

That being said, the idea of a "long play" album is dead ... but its corpse is still stinking up the joint. So we've decided to release PDV on a track-by-track basis. The entire album will be between 8 and 12 songs long, with the final song posted by Halloween."

They've released the first track Belladonna at the Official Penny Dreadful Valentine site. And I'm honored to have MSO let me debut the second new track The King in Yellow here on the Manchester Morgue. Check it out here first, and they'll be adding it to their site in a couple of days. And remember to be sure to keep checking their site for new songs as they are added.

Night of the Demons - New Trailer at BD

I might've posted something Night of the Demons remake trailer related before, but a brand new trailer is up at Bloody Disgusting.

I personally love Night of the Demons 1 and 2 - just watched them this past week actually. And I always enjoy movies where a bunch of party goers are trapped and demons/zombies/radioactive blind people show up and effectively poop the party, so I'm actually quite excited about checking this one out. From the trailer it looks loud, ridiculous, and what's the word I'm looking for....Awesome? Yeah, that's it.

Classic Themes of the Small Screen - Volume 2

Here's Classic Themes of the Small Screen - Volume 2. Another compilation I've thrown together featuring classic and not so classic TV themes throughout the last several decades.

Of the tracks here The Monster Squad, Drak Pack, It's Always Sunny, The Mighty Boosh and The Tick themes were ripped by me, everything else I pulled from my massive 1200 theme file folder so credit to all responsible for the other rips.

Included tracks:

Couple of notes:

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - Those of you not watching this show should definitely check it out. Unless you've seen it and you didn't like, in that case don't worry about it. I didn't get into the show until earlier this year, but I've since bought all the seasons and I think it's one of the funniest goddamn shows out there. Check it out if you haven't seen it.

The IT Crowd - My current favorite British show - featuring an Irishman. Check this out if you like Garth Marenghi's Darkplace or if you like The IT Crowd check out Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.

That 80's Show - Failed That 70's Show spinoff or continuation, or knock off featuring Sunny's own Dennis Reynolds. Honestly, I kinda liked this show and think the one half season they had is more enjoyable than the pretty dreadful final seasons of That 70's Show. The theme song is actually just "Eighties" by Killing Joke. Sure they only play about 20 seconds of the song on the opening credits of the show, but since I've got Night Time on my hard drive here's the whole song anyway.

The Monster Squad and Drak Pack were essentially the same show, only one was a cartoon. The only difference really (apart from the cartoon thing) is that Monster Squad had monsters that were brought back to life and wanted to rectify all their past evils. Drak Pack featured Scooby Doobian teenagers who were able to morph into a Dracula, a Werewolf and a Frankenstein. For some reason the Drak Pack DVD is only available in Canada, so I had to import that from Canada to get this track.

Swagbucks + Possible contributors wanted

I hate to sound like a weird spam email here, but I don't know if any of you know about Swagbucks. It sounds like a scam at first, and me saying it sounds like a scam also sounds like a scam, but it's actually pretty cool. It's basically a search engine, but you earn points and the points can be used to prizes and shit. You are randomly awarded points throughout the day, something like 30 a day, plus you can take part in surveys and special offers if you're up for it. You also get points for referrals, which is why I'm risking sounding like some kind of scummy salesman mentioning this here. So if you click my link and sign up, I get points whenever you get points up to 1,000 points, then anyone who signs up through your link and so on. Click below to check it out.

Search & Win

Obviously getting a Wii or something that expensive is difficult, but every 450 points adds up to a $5 Amazon gift card. I've gotten like 1200 points in a week, so you rack points up quickly if you try. You aren't going to be paying your rent by doing this or anything, but if you're like me, you are constantly using a search engine for something, this way you get at least a little something back.

Okay, enough about that, just wanted to mention it since I just heard about it myself like 5 days ago.

I'm going to try and find some new music or something to post here in the next 24 hours so stay tuned for that. I'm going to open the request thread back up - well it's always been open, I just don't have it advertised. I'm also thinking about trying to acquire a contributor or two to help with requests and posting so I'm not the only one trying to keep this site going, so if anyone is interested let me know.

Jet Black Berries - Postmodern Ghosts Sept. 7th

Holy shit, apparently I fell into some kind of 25 day coma here. Quite sorry about that, my blog post writer's block has come back with a fierce vengeance lately. I've got stuff I want to post but it's a real hassle when you can't think of what to write on a post. My delete key is really getting a workout these days.

Anyway, you may remember last year I posted about Jet Black Berries reforming and releasing an EP. Well, today I received an email from Roy Stein - drummer extraordinaire of JBB. He wanted to let me know that their new full-length album Postmodern Ghosts (great title, by the way) will be released Sept. 7th (William Katt's birthday!) and you can check out a few of their new tracks out.

Jet Black Berries - Give It All Away by phelpster1

I love the first track God With A Gun, I've looped it for about 25 minutes straight now. Needless to say, I think it's pretty excellent. I like the others as well, but God With A Gun is really working for me. Check the new tracks out, and I'll be getting the new album soon and I'll post my thoughts once I've had a chance to digest the whole album.
