There's so many reasons why Halloween is a hoot. When you're young, it's all the candy, and as you get older, that's augmented by hijinks, toilet papering, egging and so on. Then, oh yeah, the late teens, time to hit the keg parties and check out who shows up in sleazy costumes only to be gaped at by others that just matched a cowboy hat with a bandana and a flannel shirt they wear everyday anyways. Then, when official drinking age is reached, things really start rolling. It's all about bars, clubs and more parties, and the big ol' everyone's going Halloween blowout in a rented hotel ballroom. There's quite a few years in this mode, believe me.. Once that becomes ho-hum, it's back to house parties, not as warm-ups, but as the main event. That's where mixes come in handy. So if that's where you find yourself, here's some more last minute mixes, really good ones, courtesy of Grey Haas. To start things off, there's three other songs by King Khan and the BBQ Show, a Sonic Youth cover by Mudhoney, and my new favorite theremin slinger, Lydia Kavina. Spooky, that one, hard to believe it's played live.
