ZOMBIE GHOST TRAIN: Dealing the Death Card: CD

Mar 27, 2008

Too many band names suck. There’s no excuse for it. I bet you can come up with a half dozen good band names right now. All you have to do is put a bunch of cool words together, words like zombie, ghost, and train. How about Death Urine Communist? Maybe Zig Zag Dirty Wang? Anyway, these guys have a cool name, but it’s more horror-themed rockabilly. I love horror, but why is it so frequently combined with a form of music that doesn’t sound particularly horrific? It makes no sense to me. There’s a reason why there are so few science fiction country western songs. It’s because country western doesn’t sound very science fictiony. Now country horror: that would be some cool shit. Maybe if a couple of these horrorbilly bands branched out, they could do something really cool, instead of playing the same old songs over and over.
