Nash the Slash's Birthday Bash

Nash the Slash, Toronto's "serial sonic psychotron", celebrated his 60th birthday in fine style. The festivities at Stratenger's on Queen Street East featured quite amusing presents from friends & fans (the rude talking parrot was a big hit), birthday cake - and the release of a new Nash CD, 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Nash'!

It's a follow up of sorts to his 1984 album of cover songs, 'American BandAges'. The new CD features Nash's inimitable cover versions of songs by The Who, Pink Floyd, Gordon Lightfoot, Iron Butterfly, and more...

I was thrilled to re-encounter the One Man Bandaged and have him sign my poster from a live performance of his score to the classic silent horror film 'Nosferatu'.

Now I want to know, "When is Nash's soundtrack for 'The Lost World' coming out?"

Until that happy dark and stormy night I'll just have to be satisfied with the new CD and the promise of Nash's live performances this summer at The Black Swan, just up the road from me on the Danforth. Can't wait.

TCC to Screen at World Horror Convention

Just got the word from Thomas Sipos at the Hollywood Investigator's Tabloid Witch Awards that The Crypt Club will be part of a special screening at the 2008 World Horror Convention. The convention takes place March 27-30 in Salt Lake City, UT. The film is part of "The Very Best of the Tabloid Witch Awards (2004-2007)".

We were honoured when we won a Tabloid Witch Award last year. We're doubly honoured to be considered among their best films. And now we're triply honoured to be part of the World Horror Convention weekend. Someone please get all this honour off me. I, I... can't... breathe... gasp!

If you attend, I'd love to hear reports of how the screening went.

Interview in NVH Magazine.

A couple of weeks ago the folks at New Voices in Horror saw my AAAAAH!! web site and asked if I'd mind doing an interview for their new on-line magazine. Well... okay. I'll do it.

And I'm glad I did. Their site features horror stories by new writers, and the odd interview with us horror filmmaker types. Good folks and spooky tales for a dark and stormy night.
