Cadabra Records is the latest to honor the legacy of scary stories told aloud. Be it records like Alfred Hitchcock’s Ghost Stories for Young People, Edgar Allen Poe being read by Basil Rathbone, or the George S. Irving adaptation of Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, there always seemed to be a & Continued

JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS (2001) - Starburst Magazine

When Josie & the Pussycats was originally released in 2001, it came just a year after the end of the Sabrina the Teenage Witch series on the American ABC network. One would’ve thought that another modern update of an Archie Comics title would’ve been hot on its heels, but the poor box office performance of & Continued

THE ADVENTURES OF BAYOU BILLY (1988) - Starburst Magazine

Leave it to Brooklyn’s Ship to Shore Phonograph Co. to find the a way to release a 7-inch of the most insanely catchy and intensely-paced chiptune music they could find.

SOUTHBOUND AND DOWN - Starburst Magazine

Anthology films are nothing new to horror cinema. The story collection format has been a hallmark of the genre, going all the way back to Paul Leni’s 1924 silent film, Waxworks. Leni’s film helped set the template for what viewers have come to expect from the horror anthology: a framing device helps set up the & Continued

Review of the Amer soundtrack at Starburst Magazine

cover - amer
We Release Whatever the Fuck We Want Records has started to gain attention for the interesting things they do to their records, and locked grooves are quickly becoming a hallmark. However, while the likes of the Dark Star soundtrack featured them at the end of each side, Amer's soundtrack 10-inch record begins with not just one locked bit of sound effect, but multiple instances thereof on each side.
