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…

As always, every purchase you make directly supports Turntabling.net and your support is always greatly appreciated.

This is the last show of 2011 for Turntabling.net, we come back in 2012 with more of the same, but don’t miss your chance to get some pre-Xmas goodies for friends and yourself! Join us at Horrorhound Weekend, located at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Cininatti North, 11320 Chester Road, Cincinatti Ohio.

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!

Turntabling At Horror Society Film Festival October 23 & 24

Join me at the Portage Theater, 4050 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago for a jammin’ two-day film festival sponsored by the Chicago Horror Society this Saturday and Sunday October 23 and 24 2010.

Turntabling will have a table chock full of rare vinyl finds including the now totally out of print Tenebre soundtrack LP, plus plenty of other Goblin on LP and CD, plus Morricone, Public Image Limited, and hundreds more vinyl and CD titles.

Sunday at 2PM, Turntabling house band/multimedia art terrorism project Paisley Babylon performs a set to kick off the second day of the festival, complete with a lovely little video mashup called Satan’s Greatest Hits which may even be available for sale at the Turntabling table after the performance.

The two-day festival is THE Horror Society event of the year, you do NOT want to miss this one as it is packed full of great movies from here and abroad. Mitch, Jessica and company have really pulled out all the stops this time and you will NOT walk away from this show disappointed.

New Titles Coming Soon to Turntabling: Bruno Nicolai Collection

Case of the Bloody Iris Bruno Nicolai
I’m very excited to announce a limited collection of Bruno Nicolai titles for sale at Turntabling including the original soundtracks for Case of the Bloody Iris, also known as Perché quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer? That one was sold as part of the infamous Anchor Bay Giallo Collection boxed set several years ago.

We’ll also be stocking the Bruno Nicolai soundtrack for The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, AKA La Notte che Evelyn Usci Dalla Tomba, and also the soundtrack Nicolai did for Nightmares Come At Night.

If that weren’t enough, we will also be bringing you another soundtrack from the Anchor Bay Giallo Collection, Ennio Morricone’s score for Short Night of Glass Dolls, one of the best giallos ever, for my money. Keep watching the site, you’ll see these awesome soundtrack CDs coming quite soon. Sadly they are NOT available on vinyl, but they are DEFINITELY worth the investment.

I even have another little surprise in store…an experiment that could lead to a whole new offering here. But only if there’s enough interest. Should Turntabling branch out and start selling DVDs along with the soundtracks? Stay tuned.

Goblin Television Appearances

goblin logo
This may be old news to some Goblin fans but it never occurred to some of us here to do a YouTube search on Goblin to see what kind of television appearances they made to promote the work they did for Argento and others. And what a treasure trove of retro television this clip is! Cheesy hair, goofy stage presentations (love the red boots, lads) and the Jimmy Page double neck guitar all prog bands were required by law to have in at least one stage of their career arc.
