Famous Monsters

In the Night!!!

Bong Load

A good, freaky collection of horror-garage-rockabilly from Devil Doll (aka former White Zombie bassist Sean Yseult) on lead guitar, a fangy-toothed babe named Vampire Girl on rhythm guitar, and a green-skinned reptile chick named She-Zilla on drums. The result is an underground, all-girl trash rock, like the Trashwomen mixed with Man or Astroman?. The album is chock full of ghoulish monster humor and great surf-garage instrumentals. Along with original creepy songs like “Destroy Puny Earthlings!,” “The Haunting of Planet Earth,” “Outerspace Deathrace #13,” and the disturbing “Vampire Cosmonaut,” they cover Cheap Trick’s “Clock Strikes 10” and the (original) Groovie Ghoulies’ “When I Grow Up.” That ought to be enough to make this a real “collectable” for you horror-rock geeks out there. Fifteen songs in all. Bong Load Custom Records, P.O. Box 39557, Hollywood, CA 90039
