Zombie fans and NAMBLA members alike rejoiced today upon the news that Michael Jackson’s record-breaking album Thriller would be added to the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress. And just because I enjoy Vincent Price’s voice so much, here’s a link to the video once again.
This weekend, April 25-27, is the Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors in Los Angeles, CA. Click image above for larger version. Zombie related guest include George A. Romero (Legendary Zombie Director), Judith O’Dea (Night of the Living Dead 1968), Russ Streiner (NOTLD 1968), Bill Hinzman (NOTLD 1968), Kyra Schon (NOTLD 1968), Goerge Kosana (NOTLD 1968), Marilyn Eastman (NOTLD 1968), John Russo (co-writer, NOTLD 1968), Rob Tapert (producer, Evil Dead series), Corbin Bernsen (director, upcoming Dead Air), Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead 1978), Ted V. Mikels (director, Astro-Zombies), Tiffany Shepis (Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!), Patricia Tallman (NOTLD 1990, Army of Darkness, upcoming Dead Air), Johnny Legend (Bride of Re-Animator) and many other great horror guests.
Also, this Friday after the show, they are also hosting a Shock’N'Roll Spooktacular with Nekromantix, The Coffin Case Coffin Girls Fashion Show, DJ Bundy and more. Tickets are $25.
The EP is a tribute to the great zombie flicks of the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s! Almost recorded fully in low-fi for that right trashy sound.
You can download the entire album, for FREE at their website. If you just want a sampling of the music they also have an online player on this page. I listened to it quite a bit today and I REALLY like it. The song “The Initial Schock” [sic] is clearly inspired by the music of Goblin from the original Dawn of the Dead and my favorite on the album. I would love to see this end up on a zombie movie soundtrack someday!
It’s been 25 years since the release of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Sony BMG are trying to get more sales out of the album – this time using everyone’s favorite buzz term “guerrilla marketing”. So what are they doing? Sending people dressed as zombies out into the streets who “spontaneously” break out into the famous Thriller dance. The idea is to get the song back in people’s heads, with the hopes that they’ll go home and buy the album. I’m sure that doesn’t work out that great but good on them for trying. (If they really wanted me to buy Thriller, they’d have to show me some undeniable proof that Jacko isn’t a child molester. )
Michigan folks in need of a zombie fix will have it this Friday at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor. The night will have several bands, a burlesque show, and a carnival style sideshow. More details can be found here on the online edition of the Michigan Daily. They are asking attendees to dress up like zombies. Sounds like a fun night so make check it out if you’re in the area!
