strange brew

Welcome re-airing of a Halloween special put together by those dudes over at Special Brew HQ, all hallows happenings aplenty from this 2011 broadcast, the usual rummaging around in the vaults for lost ear candy though this particular edition is indelibly grooved with a spooky side serving. Among the thrills n’ spills the obligatory ‘monster mash’ cover – this one by the bonzos with the mighty Mr Stanshall in situ, an absolute drop dead amazing psych cut from Fortes Mentum entitled ’Mr Partridge passed away today’ – admittedly something that we’ve not previously heard and with that absolute barking stuff. Somewhere else there’s the must hear ‘haunted’ by peter thorogood, some prettified floral pirouettes courtesy of the beautifully carefree ‘graveyard’ by forest – again another ensemble who appear to have slipped beneath our radar, a rarity from Sam Gopal featuring in their ranks a youthful Lemmy all this and an exclusive Jeff Christie demo cut ‘nightmare’ – one suspects more treats than tricks.
