There is only one way to get your bloody glitter on this Pride Day Sunday! Listen to some frickin’ awesome Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs – headed by Freddy’s Dead’s always rocking, total swoon monster Lezlie Deane! Their Limited Edition EP is The Muffs meets Alice Cooper by way of T Rex.
Opening song “Let’s Go” provides all the caffeine adrenaline that you need to get going in the morning while the tender (yet propulsive) “I Want You” proves that even kick-ass mommas can get their hearts broken. “Little Blue Bug” is one of the weirdest, most original love songs ever manufactured. Meanwhile, “Down” and “Original Sin” round out this 5 song recording with pure rockin’ fervor.
You can purchase Limited Edition EP and plenty of other sweaty, high kicking Scary Cherry merchandise at www.scarycherry.com.
And if that ain’t queer enough for you – Deane was also a member of the Sapphic, all girl electronic dance group Fem 2 Fem in the 90’s. So, here’s a little uncensored “Obsession” to wet your lip bitten, rainbow red whistle:
Until the next time – Keep that Deane love going strong!!!
SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!!!
Big Gay Horror Fan is always feeling light headed – but performance art/hip-hop performer Andy D takes being spacey to new levels with his brand new recording (with The Weekend) War Cries.
A concept album featuring a post-Apocalyptic world of mutants and robots, War Cries is full of fun ‘n filthy rap with a science fiction vibe.
Most importantly, Andy and sexy muse Anna Vision address the horrors associated with self-hate in the fantastic track “Alaska” – which you can witness, from a live show, below:

While there probably isn’t much that is creepier than pretending your ex-wife is your sister – the garage heavy The White Stripes actually always had a bit of horror happiness pulsing throughout their music. Prime example – the song “Little Ghost” (from 2005′s awesomely titled Get Behind Me Satan) which was used to glorious effect over the end titles of 2012′s sentimentally spooky ParaNorman.
Ah, ParaNorman. True, all horror geeks could relate to the misunderstood (ghost seeing) title character. But, an extra bonus to queer terror freaks is the inclusion of dumb jock character Mitch. Voiced by Casey Affleck, this normal red blooded dude is revealed at the film’s conclusion to be a happily focused homosexual – a type of character more major studio scare-a-thons need to embrace – pronto!
Something to ponder about until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
Death Waltz’s They Live cover.
Big Gay Horror Fan is finally in love again! Yes, I am completely smitten with Death Waltz Recording Company.
Blood spattered yellow vinyl – Yellow.
This totally awesome, blood splattered vinyl emporium is based in England and has been releasing thick slabs of horror based aural mayhem. Each brain speckled item comes with original artwork (including posters) and each (first run product) often comes in glorious shades of colored vinyl.
Some recent catalog items include a deliciously thick reissue of John Carpenter’s They Live score and a re-mastered soundtrack of Hammer’s Twins of Evil.
Graham Humphreys’ insane inlay for Yellow!
This year’s Record Store Day saw such the release of such insane collectables as The Theme to the Munsters
and a gorgeous printing of Antoni Maiovvi’s music for the short film Yellow

When he was a child, Big Gay Horror Fan was abducted from the parochial terrors of Mother Superior’s Leather Hooded Orphanage by some well meaning strangers. Oh, how he misses those days of self-flagellation at the hands of double horned Sister Sophia!
Amazing NY musician Lady Lamb The Beekeeper (AKA Aly Spaltro) takes abduction scenarios to pie-strewn heights with the video for her vibrant song “The Nothing, Part II”, though. Spooky, atmospheric and noir-dark, this chilling treatise brings some Communion style horror to the complexities of modern life.

I’ve got to hand it to you, I didn’t think you could name that tune!
He’s battled swamp sharks and New Orleans’ demons – oh yeah, and a Maniac Cop or two. He’s even brought the bad (with a vengeance) to your favorite childhood film and your treasured spy capers. But, genre legend Robert Davi (The Goonies, License to Kill, Predator 2, Soulkeeper, Night Trap, the Maniac Cop series) is now bringing his compelling presence and eclectic skills to music halls, everywhere!
With true style and verve, Davi has been recording and performing the songs of one of America’s music legends, Frank Sinatra. While this may seem a turn of pace to some, anyone who has truly appreciated the subtle methods behind Davi’s strangest villains won’t be surprised at all.
And – you don’t even need someone to ‘Fly You to the Moon’ to get a velvet ear-full. Just watch this official promotional video:
Then swing over to http://www.davisingssinatra.com to learn more.
Watch out, Edward!
Oh Land brings the real sparkle!
In person, Nanna Øland Fabricius has more sparkle than the most devoted Stephanie Meyer acolyte. As her mystical music making persona Oh Land, Fabricius also finds some true haunting beauty with songs referencing zombies and emotional decay. Her song “Wolf and I” is a mysteriously delightful look at relationships wherein her love is a wolf and Fabricius – well, she is the all encompassing moon, baby — and don’t you forget it!
This song is tailor made for those moments when you can’t find your threading VHS copy of Wolf and you need some hairy Nicholson in your life, pronto!:
Of his multiple, life altering heroes few rate higher in Big Gay Horror Fan’s book than exquisitely eclectic musician-composer-man of the hour Les Baxter.
Well known to the swinging bachelor pad compilation listener, Baxter actually scored tons of amazing genre flicks throughout the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s. Titles such as Pharaoh’s Curse, Voodoo Island, Black Sunday (US Version), Corman’s The Pit and the Pendulum and Cry of the Banshee grace his vastly appreciated repertoire.
Here Baxter imagines what love with “Robby” set might be like with this spritely track:
Then, with seemingly ease, he produces an atmosphere of mystic foreboding with “The Gates of Annam” from his superior work Ports of Pleasure. Ports features many compositions that entice and terrify, alternatively, making it the perfect background muse for your homegrown horror efforts.
World wise sexuality and courageous resolve – No, I am not talking about the hunchbacked warrior goddesses that raised Big Gay Horror Fan, but New Wave rocker, author and actress Christina Amphlett who lost her fierce battle with breast cancer and multiple sclerosis on Sunday, April 21st (2013) at the age of 53.
As the lead singer of Divinyls, Amphlett brought strength and sexuality to the fore in the mid-to-late 80′s with hits such as “I Touch Myself” and (the even more tantalizing) “Pleasure and Pain”. More than anything, perhaps, it was her image as a woman who would take no guff (one Divinyls’ LP was entitled “Temperamental”) that endeared her to the more pin sharp music lovers of the MTV age.
Teens who grew into their terror tights during the reign of Freddy and Jason, also, fondly remember Amphlett as one of the horror soundtrack queens. Divinyls’ songs decorated the background atmosphere of such notable flicks as The Stepfather and (the original) Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. Most iconic was her seductive, smoke drenched warbling on “Back to the Wall”, a track that was featured, prominently, in Nightmare on Elm Street 4.
After the Divinyls’ short reign of hit making was over, Amphlett spent the 90′s as a guest vocalist on recordings by legendary folk artist John Prine and appeared on the stage in her native Australia. (She gets extra pink points for portraying Judy Garland in a production of Boy From Oz.) A (hard-to-find) memoir about her battles with disease was published, as well, proving that not only was she one of rock’s most ferocious beauties, but one of its most eclectic, as well.
R.I.P. to one hell of a “Sleeping Beauty”!
Great Buckets of Blood! No, Big Gay Horror Fan is not talking about old school Roger Corman in this instance. I am actually referring to sexy Brazilian pop band Goo Goes Laves and their horror inspired video for their upbeat track “Get in! Get Out! Jump!”
Filled with spooky houses, scar sporting villains and driller killers galore, this rambunctious offering ultimately gives you the choice of three endings – naturally resulting in a genre filled morning of fun.
