“Around these parts we appreciate fine horror-themed music. Such is the case with Vince Ripper and the Rodent Show from the UK, who just put out their CD entitled It’s Fun to Be a Monster.”
I couldn’t actually make it through the whole video, frankly, because Mad Men is on, and I don’t want you to get me wrong or anything, but this is basically pure template music founded almost entirely on the horror-rockabilly typeset. I love indie music, but this is so campy it looks forced; like a cross between the Misfits Famous Monsters album and any album by Alice Cooper.
It could be good b-movie soundtrack fodder, and that’s about it. I hate to pick at a starving artist, but I’m sure someone will like it, and it totally appeals to the desperate people searching for more horror-themed music. But I’m over it. Ready for something new and twisty, that brings something exciting to the genre.
