• songs for swinging ghosts  (CD, £7.25)

    label: Croydon Municipal

    Here's a classy collection of sexy sirens and cool ghouls, a party friendly selection that could have been the soundtrack to Carry On Screaming!  Think Elvira and 'Monster Mash' on a holiday at Ealing Studios. Most of these spooky tunes have never been on CD before, and are rare 45s from the collections of writer and musician (Saint Etienne) and renowned DJ Martin Green.  Highlights include club hit ‘Fallout Shelter’ (banned by the BBC in case it worried “listeners of a nervous disposition”!), Lyn Cornell's saucy ‘Demon Lover,’ and Tony Hatch's super-rare TV theme for ‘Ghost Squad.’ Haunting stuff!
