Vampyros Lesbos

This song is from the Vampyros Lesbos soundtrack conducted and written by Manfred Hublert and Seigfried Schwab. Vampyros Lesbos is a German-Spanish erotic vampire film from 1971. I haven't seen the film in years. I remember it being very beautiful and very sexy, but the plot was a bit boring and I think I fell asleep. The film and soundtrack are a relic of the swinging 60s into 70s attitude. Most of the songs are a little too earnest to bear, but I really like this one. I highly recommend this film for video collage projects or sexy nightclub visuals. Kinda like this guy did...

Glass Candy And The Shattered Theatre

My friend Christopher requested that I put up the "Metal Gods" 7" from 2000. Here you go Christopher! We used to go to the same shows!

B Hurt

Brittle Women

This is a Glass Candy And The Shattered Theatre song from 1999. They released this 7" themselves. "Brittle Women" is one of my favorite songs from their early years. The first shows I saw of them were in small underground clubs, basement parties, and a Japanese restaurant. I loved them back then, and I love them now. I hope you enjoy this track. You might be surprised if you only know their more recent music.

Snowy Red

Snowy Red is one of the precious gems from the minimal wave era of the early 1980s. Snowy Red is more obscure, but not less talented than his contemporaries: Suicide, The Normal, and Visage. Little is known about Snowy Red beyond it's origin in Belgium and the name of it's craftsman, the mysterious Micky Mike. I have to say, Snowy Red are to me the synthetic sound of the spiritual-punk-psychedelic soul. These two songs have resided on my list of favorite songs since first hearing them in 2003.
