Bruce Springsteen Vs. The Undead

My .mac account is sucking up a storm right now and making it damn near impossible for me to post entire albums as zip files. Once I get that figured out I’ll be uploading an awesome Queen set from 1986 taken off of a Westwood One radio concert. Until then, here’s some stuff that I promised yesterday.

Day Of The Dead Original Soundtrack
The Dead Walk
Escape Invasion
If Tomorrow Comes
Break Down
The World Inside Your Eyes
The Dead Suite
Since it’s almost Halloween I figured I should start posting some scary shit, and since I didn’t pick up that David Hasselhoff album I saw today this one will have to do.

Supposedly the soundtrack to Day Of The Dead is incredibly hard to find, unless you live in Pittsburgh (which I do). As any zombiephile can tell you, Pittsburgh is the zombie capital of the US as all three of Romero’s original trilogy (Night, Dawn, And Day) were filmed in the greater Pittsburgh area. The soundtrack to Day was pressed in Pittsburgh (by Saturn Records) I guess they only sold them in Pittsburgh. I’ve seen 10 or so copies of this at several record stores in the greater Pittsburgh area – Hell, I bought two. It was released on CD a bit ago, but with a limited run of 3000 copies, it went pretty fast and is now a sought-after collector’s item. I wish I had that one, because it has some bonus tracks on it.

The first half of the album is alright, with some decent instrumental tracks making up for the god-awful songs that feature singing by “Sputzy Sparacino.” The real highlight is the long form instrumental ‘The Dead Suite’ which is the entire B-side of the album.

Siouxsie And The Banshees
Song From The Edge Of The World (7 Inch Mix)
Song From The Edge Of The World (Columbus Mix)
Mechanical Eyes
The Whole Price Of Blood
Siouxsie And The Banshees is one of those bands I have absolutely no excuse for not knowing more about. I only have a couple of their singles and a greatest hits set, and that makes me sad. Hopefully I’ll get some more soon. These tracks are off of the 12-inch Song From The Edge Of The World EP. The Columbus mix of the song was recently put on a greatest hits package, and the other two b-sides are only available on the band’s pricey box set

Bruce Springsteen
57 Channels (And Nothing On) Little Steven Mix Version 1
Part Man, Part Monkey
Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce!!! Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce!!

Sorry about that, it’s a reflex. A love of Bruce Springsteen runs in my family – I inherited it from my mom. I read an article saying that hipster kids have been getting into him recently, which is cool because his anti-war, fuck-the-man stance would mesh well with them. Both these songs are off of the 57 Channels 12-inch single. ‘Part Man, Part Monkey’ is also on the Tracks and 18 Tracks collections if you’re interested in picking it up on CD.

    Thanx for the Dead OST. You can never have enough zombies, not even in Pittsburgh.
