Disappear (May you) - a curse

The dark park

Get down and get creepy with “The dark park”. It’s toe-tappingly monstrous. It’s hellishly hummable and frighteningly FREE! It’s the 2nd single from the album “MONSTTERS” to be released end of September. You may never walk through a park at night again…

Transported Through Twilight

With his new 6-track album ‘Transported through twilight’, Ron Jon takes us to strange and distant shores by way of the duduk. This ancient double-reeded instrument is made of apricot wood and delivers a sad, warm, beautiful and smooth tone. The duduk is used in these songs to enhance their mystical moods.

"Old Dark"
I chose this lovely artwork by Louis-Léopold Boilly called "Tartini's Dream" for the album cover. There is something perversely comforting about having the devil play the violin to lull you to sleep and accompany you in your dreams.

"Cowboy clown in a meat suit"

This is the first in my series of lunatic lockdown albums! Each week for 5 weeks I’ll be releasing a new album for barely a farthing. This first one has a theme running through it.
Yes, there's a theme running through some of these uncomfortable tracks. I'm sure it's easy enough to figure out.

Demons Like Us

*** For these micro-horrors the spectre collector went back to basics. Nothing too tricky, too fancy. Keep them short, sharp and creepy.

Father Fungi

In these two brief new spectral tales, a priest proves to be more just your average father and a dream house suddenly comes on the market.

Mother Spectre's Cursery Rhymes

These are not sweet rhymes for the kiddies.

There are no jolly dancing pigs here, no cows that jump over moons and certainly no happily-ever-afters.

There is just the dimly lit world of Mother Spectre’s Cursery Rhymes.

The album is out now on Bandcamp!

He stood in the dark corner of my room. Tall and thin, straggly beard, with his pack and bedroll. Smelt like a dog.
When I was a kid, back on the farm, some nights the swagman came to visit.
Told me he hung himself from the big old red gum down by the creek. Wanted to show me where …and how. Silly bugger.
