Blimey, Halloween's almost upon us and it's days since I posted a Halloween Hullabaloo video. So here's two. (In my defence, Cannonball Jones, who came up with the whole idea, has been less than regular with his posts, too—though he caught up some today—so I'm in good company!)

This one's a number by Thee Flatliners, a band of whom I know virtually nothing, except that they're Austrian, entitled Prisoner Of The Night. Great song, though!

I think I missed a day of this. Oh well.

Anyways, here's a bit of a silly one. The Toy Dolls, with their typically idiosyncratic version of Charlie Daniels' The Devil Went Down To Georgia Scunthorpe.

It's carnival night in Taunton. I shan't be attending. I got jaded of standing in the cold watching brightly lit floats go past, playing over-amplified (I can hear it from here, best end of two miles away) top-ten hits that I'd never want to listen to unless someone put a gun to my head, many many years ago. Don't get me wrong, it's a great night if you have kids, or haven't seen it before—the style of carnival we have here in Somerset is, apparently, unique to the area, and it really is a nice spectacle for those who haven't already seen thirty-odd of 'em—it's just that I am, as I say, somewhat jaded on it.

Oops! I forgot last night's halloween post! So here it is. Just for a change, let's go with a track most people will already know. Here's the Eagles, with Witchy Woman, courtesy of Mack, the mad mackem woman who really does seem to think that real music ended in about 1978, and who suggested the song.

Okay, so it's time for tonight's Halloween Hullabaloo entry. Cannonball Jones, whose tastes seem a tad more catholic than my own, has posted a rap song of all things. Not a genre I know much about, but I'd think horror-esque rap songs would be few and far between, so chalk one up for inclusivity and a good find. Well done, that man!

Halloween Hullabaloo Part Two

Well, I finally got t'internet back. I would have had it on Monday, but some silly berk at BT "forgot to include the hub in the order"! How such a lapse is possible, I have no idea, but, ah well, all's well what ends well. And I have to say that BT's help line and help-staff are much more, well, helpful than TalkTalk's. One chap even phoned me back, when a helpful procedure occured to him, that he'd not thought of whilst talking to me. And I'm back in town now, rather than out in the sticks, and the move closer to the exchange has done serious wonders for my bandwidth. From a top download-speed of about 140Kps I've gone to summat in the region of 1300Kps … Blink, and it's done. Mind you, it still takes my outdated old box bloomin' ages to install the download thus sped to me, but the gift-horse's new dentures should definitely not be sneezed at.

Anyways, for now, here's my belated next posting in Cannonball Jones's Halloween Hullaballoo season.

I hope he'll forgive me posting two vids in one entry, given that I've had to miss so many anyway. I thought I'd go for two songs with the same title, which means they work better as one post anyway. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking with it!

So here's the Sweet and the Radiacs with their takes on the word Hellraiser.

And I'm off to see what Mr jones has been posting in my absence.
