GRAVEYARD FIVE, THE: “The Graveyard Theme” b/w “The Marble Orchard”: 7”

This is a double threat to me ‘cause these two songs are grave-stone cold and I love to pull records for the imaginary Halloween party that never seems to happen. You don’t have to be in an October state of mind to appreciate these late-night howls. “The Graveyard Theme” is a standard four/four instrumental, but the tinny, reverb-laden guitars and sliding bass line create a din that will keep you up with the bats. “The Marble Orchard” is about hangin’ in the graveyard. It’s a groover more than a mover, but if that’s your thing, it’s a must have.
