The Monsters "Masks," "The Hunch"

(Voodoo Rhythm) Certainly the two finest slices of Swiss Halloween cheese ever recorded, the Monsters 80s output is reissued with creepy love by the man responsible for the lo-fi, diseased, garage damage served up on these two slabs. A quarter century later Rev. Beat Man is an esteemed (though sinister) minister, and the CEO of the massive Voodoo Rhythm empire, but fronting the frightening Monsters (who, true to their name, did almost exclusively monster-themed music, including the evilest cover of the Sonics' "The Witch") Beat Man was merely a frog-voiced demon in the rock n roll trenches spreading evil. Elevate your Mischief Night to Mayhem Night by spinning these putrid platters...they redefine horror, in the best way.
