HADDONFIELDS: We Are Not Alone: CD

Mar 15, 2010

Haddonfield is the city where Mr. Michael Myers lives. The horror references don’t end there. In fact, while I wouldn’t necessarily call the Haddonfields a horror punk band, horror is definitely a major preoccupation for them. They’ve got two songs about zombies on this disc, the best being “Barbara,” a quick sort-of-love song from the perspective of the first zombie that appears in the legendary “They’re coming to get you Barbara” scene that opens Night of the Living Dead. In terms of their sound, they’ve got the whoa whoa whoa-ing down, but there’s no overt Misfits worship going on here. It’s just gruff and melodic Midwestern punk about monsters. You know, the good stuff.
