For Hallowe’en

At least one half of BBO is a friend of the darkness, and as such we always like to celebrate that time variously known as All Hallow’s Eve, Samhain, Hop-tu-naa, Nos Galan Gaeaf, Blodmonath or Goth Xmas. So here’s a series of tracks and mixes for you to welcome in nature’s dying, celebrate, nay, mock the forces of evil, and don a crepuscular countenance.

Firs up two slices of horror disco from the ever brilliant label Giallo Disco Records:

More horrific synths are conjured in this by Black Manna, and are coupled by chants and monstrous screams:

And now we launch into the depths of cosmic horror replete with the ever-haunting Theramin, via Australia and the aptly named The Night Terrors:

Next up a radiophonic collage replete with recordings from (in)famous British poltergeist cases:

We move on to the product of two very disturbed psyches in the form of Zirkus:

And finally, a stunningly creepy mix from that occult experimentalist and psychogeographer, Melmoth the Wanderer. If you listen to one thing from this post, make it this:

And what would our Hallowe’en post be without some dodgy Goff? Don’t answer that. Watch this instead:

Marvellous. Now go get spooked.
