Thriller "Darkness falls across the land / The midnight hour is close at hand / Creatures crawl in search of blood / To terrorize your neighbourhood". Vincent Price had it pretty much spot on when he added this foreboding soliloquy to Michael Jackson's ode to the undead in 1982. As the witching hour approaches, MOJO thought it would be appropriate to congeal some of our favourite monster melodies from the bone-rattling dark side of music.

Question: How drunk is Shane MacGowan? Answer: Not as drunk as his mate.

You ain’t seen anything until you’ve seen the Jewish Beatles.

A reminder of what’s actually good about The Hives.

Wu-Tang’s RZA loves While My Guitar Gently weeps. He especially likes the way the “chords go up and down”. Who knew?

Why punk wozn’t dead. But is now…

And just for the hell of it, here’s a picture of Blur/Gorillaz Damon Albarn in a school play, as taken from a new biography by Martin Roach and David Nolan. There he is, first from right at the back. See, he always said he woz nevva posh...


Damon Albarn: Blur, The Gorillaz And Other Fables is published by Independent Music Press on November 25. It’ll put you back £12.99.

Cometscrop2 You might have been holding your breath for quite some time but now, finally, you can exhale: Comets On Fire, Kyuss, Black Mountain, OM are to star in their own generational restaging of The Year That Punk Broke: in other words, a feature-length rockumentary about all things down-tuned and fuck-you superheavy. It’s called Such Hawks, Such Hounds (after a Dead Meadow Song of course!) and it promises more fun than eating a space cake and putting your head in a bass bin. Click the MORE button for Johanna Bennett’s preview and a chance to view the trailer.

Currently still in production, Such Hawks, Such Hounds has been written, directed and produced by the California-based John Srebulas and Jessica Hundley, and traces the bowel-punishing, third-eye-goosing subgenre from its influential beginnings in Kyuss’s Palm Desert lair to its current heavy psych manifestations, including Black Mountain and Dead Meadow.

It’s packed with young men with large beards and plaid shirts hazily contemplating the important questions – like “what is heavy?” and “why can’t we all get a bong?” – while blasted deserts and sun-dappled woods provide a, like, er, really meaningful backdrop. Along the way, the film-makers probe the secrets of the “brown note” – the mythic ultra-low vibration that causes the unwary to defecate spontaneously. Think of it as Decline Of Western Civilisation Pt II meets Slacker on a diet of too much Black Sabbath, if there can ever be too much Black Sabbath.

Such Hawks, Such Hands should emerge in some form around the end of the year. Meanwhile, the concept raises a number of heavy questions: like, what other obscuro sub-cultures are crying out for a documentary? New Rave? Grindie? Screamo? Your nominations, please…
