Christmas With Colonel Sanders

 

I’ve been eyeballing this album for weeks, and finally bought it yesterday at Laurie’s Planet of Sound in Chicago. I finally broke down and bought this because of the burning questions the album raises for deep thinkers like me.

“Who the hell wears a sting tie?” and “Fried chicken for Christmas?”

Most importantly, “Do I really need to have the leering face of Colonel Sanders peering down at me at 3AM on Christmas morning? Complete with that ‘let’s open presents’ gleam in his eye easily mistaken for the more sinister ‘don’t tell your parents we’re doing this’ leer…”

I am afraid to put this record on the turntable–buried in my sleep-deprived brain I am sure there are coded instructions that will activate some sort of post-hypnotic suggestion telling me to chop up the neighbors for firewood and to make festive sausages out of goldfish–the fish, not the crackers.

The Colonel doesn’t seem to sing on this LP, which is a kindness, really.

I imagine his voice would sound like a cross between a drunken Anthony Hopkins in his best Hannibal Lecter moments and Vincent Price whooping it up on nitrous oxide.

In other news, I’ll likely be featuring this LP in a spoken-word rant at an open mic night near you sometime soon. Vinyl Road Rage V might be crammed full of appearances like that, stay tuned for announcements on that…

Join Turntabling at Cinema Wasteland April 1-3 Strongsville, Ohio

Join Turntabling at Cinema Wasteland, one of THE best movie-related conventions in the USA. The Turntabling booth will be running full steam ahead with a huge pile of vinyl and CD obscurities, rare titles, and lustworthy releases. Looking for Skinny Puppy’s Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse? There will be ONE COPY available at the show. Do you need some Boris Karloff on vinyl? How about Vincent Price? Peter Lorre? All there waiting for you in VERY limited quantities.

Cinema Wasteland is three days of cinema (non-stop screenings!) and nostalgia in a monster-sized show with some of the best vendors and collectibles you’ll find at any show, anywhere. This is Turntabling’s first appearance at the show as a vendor so we are very excited to be taking part and bringing the vinyl finds to you.

Once Wasteland is over, Turntabling resumes its online sales in a major way–stay tuned for more information on that and much more. See you at the show–which is at the Holiday Inn in Strongsville, ¬†minutes from Cleveland. As the Cinema Wasteland site says, it’s located¬†off the Ohio Turnpike (I-80/90) & I-71.

Turntabling in HorrorHound #27 “The Sounds of Argento Part 2”

by Joe Wallace

Turntabling strikes again in the pages of HorrorHound magazine. In issue 27, the Vincent Price edition, you’ll find part two of my Sounds of Argento article, which has gotten some very kind words from horror soundtrack lovers across the country. THANK YOU!

Turntabling has long been proud to be associated with Horrorhound in any capacity, from simply attending the Horrorhound Weekend shows to running the Turntabling booth there, and now in the pages of HH these last two issues along with regulars Jon Kitley from Kitley’s Krypt and Matt Moore who does the always fun Tapes of Terror column.

HorrorHound doesn’t have a regular soundtrack column, but they might be tempted to add one if enough people wrote in to suggest such a thing. Drop ’em a line at contactus@horrorhound.com. In the meantime, have a look at HorrorHound #27 and not just for the Sounds of Argento article–this is a VERY solid issue!
