The 1980s and 90s was a drifting period for our favorite shock rocker.  
Embracing various musical avenues and experimenting with new sounds and looksm we saw a few new incarnations of ALICE. 
Yes, embracing a leaner new wave asthetic was considered by many to be his low point, (We dissagree STRONGLY!) both musically and sales-wise before diving into a more glam metal period, finally returning to where he stepped out on his own origi...

He's been called the godfather of punk,  the king of shock rock, the heavy metal monster!
He melded the world of theatre with the world of rock in a way that no one had ever seen before.  Inhabiting the personas of killer, monster,  child, and taking the name of a dead girl.  He gave voice to disenfrachised youth everywhere... 
AND he's not finished.  Hot on the heels of his newest album DETROIT STORIES the man does not seem ...

It emerged at a time when extreme sex and violence could be movie theatre fodder.  It was a glorious celebration for S.F., Horror and Comic fans.. it was ANIMATED AND had a KILLER SOUNDTRACK to boot !  It was HEAVY METAL!!!

Here it is!   The famous K-Tel record collections!   Yes, they cornered the market and sold a whopping 500, 000, 000 records during their tenure at the TOP of the record industry.

  Yes, with out K-Tel how would we stack perfectly uniform patties?  How would we select our records or 8 track tapes? Why would you want a regular brush when you could get a MIRACLE BRUSH?  Yes, we all have Phil Kives to thank for so many items ...

The house that Mike Vraney built in the faraway age of 1990.  A house of everything from nudism, sleaze, rough sex, depravity, gore and Betty Page is our topic this week.  Sure the movies themselves may be lacking competence, cohesion, logic or even basic storytelling but the allure is unmistakable there.

 Paul Williams is a renaissance man.  Most here may know him primarily as the amazing SWAN from The Phantom Of The Paradise but he's so much more. He's left his indelible mark in the world of music, film and television and was everywhere when we were kids.  His small stature certainly contained a huge talent.

  Harvey Keitel has been one of the most interesting, vibrant actors of his generation.  Fearless in his choices of roles, few actors have appeared in both mainstream fare like 'Sister Act' while also exploring the extremes of his craft by inhabiting such flawed characters as the 'Bad Lieutenant'.  Part one of our chat will explore Keitel's early 1970's work with his work with directors like Martin Scorcese,...

 The success of Hellraiser and the Books of Blood led Clive Barker to more exploration into the dark recesses of media.   Books like The Damnation Game and Weaveworld and the films Nightbreed and Lord of Illusions were unleashed with Barker as the chief creator and others' interpretations of his stories have followed over the years.

  When his seminal collections, The Books of Blood, exploded onto the horror world it was impossible not to feel the earth shift below our fear loving feet.  Clive Barker had arrived on the wave of the British Splatter scene but his ambitions were far larger.
  His tales were beautifully literary.. and brutal.  A canvas of blood that would extend to other creative worlds: Film, Television, Comic Books, Painting and Illustration.
