MuseionArt Hallowe’en Audio Intrusion: Deltasleep’s SOUND THAT CAN KILL OR CURE

It was a dark and stormy night…

 

Bauhaus abducted Devo from a dark alley and dragged her off to his secret subterranean lab.  Combining his DNA with Devo’s in an unholy mixture of Rockabilly toughs, a Country&Western bar band, and the zombie corpse of Lord Johnny Cash, a hideous monster arose to take over the world…

 

This is not the plot to a high-concept horror movie, but my best possible description of the “Ameritronica” you’ll hear when you listen to Sound That Can Kill or Cure, by Deltasleep.

Okay, so other than my strange motion picture treatment above, what does this music have to do with Hallowe’en?  Well, what about the first song, sporting the ‘50s B-flick mash-up title “Bikini Monsters with Keytars?”  Or what about “Trailer Park Zombie Welfare Moms?”  There’s also the more subtle, “The Hills Are Undead.”

 

And I know what you’re thinking, but no, this is not an album of novelty songs.  The monster and zombie references have more to do with the B-film culture of the 1950s and 60s that spawned them than the actual movies themselves.  Sound That Can Kill or Cure is a serious (and seriously fun) collection of songs by a talented American collage artist.

 

And, if that’s not enough, included is a cover version of the Waylon Jennings mega-hit “Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys.”

 

Listen for Deltasleep in Episode 2 of MuseionCast Vol.3, “SUSPENDED MAN.”  In the interim, grab your shotgun, spiky bat, head for the hills in your Plymouth Fury, and get a copy of this CD.
