Phantom Creep Radio #31: Black Flamingos

It’s time to Hang Ten…or more, if ya got ‘em. The sinister summer is in its dying months, but like a fiend possessed, it won’t go quietly. Instead, we surf, surf, surf against the dying of the light, reveling in the last screams of the sunny season before October rolls in to reign supreme. While our hearts are full of darkness and our bellies full of blood, we still can bob around and enjoy a day at the beach. After all, if the Creature from the Black Lagoon can hit up the waves, why not you?

Ahead of the Asbury Park Surf Music Festival, featuring SATAN’S PILGRIMS, THE MADEIRA, and more, take a trip in the BUCKET O’ BLOOD back to when BLACK FLAMINGOS played the MIDNIGHT MONSTER HOP. Grab your board, or use a spare coffin lid, to surf the sewers alongside radioactive rats and glow-in-the-dark superalligators. You might run into a C.H.U.D. or three, but don’t fret. They’re all headed to OTTO’S SHRUNKEN HEAD to party at the MIDNITE MONSTER HOP!

THE MIGHTY MOLOCH, DJ GREG-GORY and STRANGE JASON are on hand to creep about and make sure no one drowns in their drink (and if they do, they make their way home in an Uber…or a hearse.) In between the zombies and the scorpion bowls, the PHANTOM CREEPS will spin some moldy golden oldies that are sure to send you down a whirlpool of madness and mayhem. Rock and roll will take a bite out of your soul like one of the Deep Ones. So don’t get too Insmouthy. Instead, fill your mouth with something sweet while you fill your ears with PHANTOM CREEP RADIO.

Don’t get too frightened if we huff and we puff. The real wolves will be outside your door on August 25, 2018. THE BIG BAD will made their Midnight Monster Hop debut, along with Cheap Sneakers! It’s all going down at Otto’s, so don’t you dare miss it!

If you feel something brush against your leg while you’re out swimming, don’t be frightened. That’s just us coming up for air, because PHANTOM CREEP RADIO IS. ON. THE. SCARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Phantom Creep Radio #30: Thomas Torment

The moon is full during the summer sky, so why not go barking mad and howl, howl at the star-lit sky! FARMER SMITH, the PHANTOM CREEPS’ resident werewolf, takes to the DJ booth. He doesn’t say much, but with his dogbreath, be glad he’s a strong silent type. If you want someone who can’t hold his tongue, then get ready for the howling lunatic that is THOMAS TORMENT! He’s having a screamin’ good time in the back of OTTO’S SHRUNKEN HEAD, all part of the MIDNITE MONSTER HOP!

Join as THE MIGHTY MOLOCH, DJ GREG-GORY and the rest of the creeps dig up a night full of punk, junk, rock and roll that’ll steal your soul. If you’ve got fleas…BRING ‘EM! Everyone’s welcome at the Monster Hop.You never know who’ll you go home with.

If you want to transform into a snarling beast and get down on all fours, join us on July 28, where GENKI GENKI PANIC and THE UNDEAD will leave you spinnin’ and grinnin’ and beggin’ for more.

So, grow some fur, get a pentagram in your palm, find your pack or be a lone wolf. It’s about to get hairy, because PHANTOM CREEP RADIO IS. ON. THE. SCARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Phantom Creep Radio #29: THE DEMON SEEDS

So you say you have the devil inside of you? Just one? Get possessed, exorcised and RE-possessed all over again as the BUCKET O’ BLOOD, the PHANTOM CREEPS’ outta-space, outta-time pulmonary vessel travels back when the gates of hell opened up to spew forth a sound…of pure rock and roll temptation! The devil’s favorite sons, THE DEMON SEEDS, brought a bit of Beelzebub to the back of OTTO’S SHRUNKEN HEAD, leaving people speaking in tongues while ordering drinks and leaving lipstick pentagrams on the bathroom mirror.

Before you sign over your soul in exchange for a smokin’ scorpion bowl, listen as DJ GREG-GORY, THE MIGHTY MOLOCH and the rest of the PHANTOM CREEPS play some sinful sounds that would make Ol’ Scratch himself tap his cloven foot. Baphomet, Asmodeus and Belial all get carded at the front, but it’s Lucifer who greases the palms of the demon working the door and invited inside.

If this devilish episode is enough to tempt you, come down to Otto’s Shrunken Head in New York City on May 26. ARGYLE GOOLSBY AND THE ROAMING MIDNIGHT will play the Monster Hop, along with the THE LONG LOSTS. Plus, the Creeps will be on hand to spin the splatter platters that really matter.

Let down your hair, grow a pair of horns and take a deep breath of sulfur because it’s about to get hellacious. PHANTOM CREEP RADIO IS. ON. THE. SCARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phantom Creep Radio #23: The Long Losts

What was lost, now am found – and what you found, deep underground, is that cra-a-a-a-zy sound that’s going around! This ain’t no fever. This ain’t no cold. It’s a twice-terrifying tale that’s too strange to behold. It’s PHANTOM CREEP RADIO, broadcasting live and undead from the back of Otto’s Shrunken Head!

Travel through time and space in a devious race back to when THE LONG LOSTS tempted you to lose control and sell your soul in the greatest ever Trick ‘R Treat of all time. Listen in delight – and in fright – as these they terrify and exhilarate. Even the shadows had to dance along. The music is so enchanting, you may run screaming off into the woods, never to be seen again. But we’ll find you. We’ll always find you.

What does the future hold for PHANTOM CREEP RADIO and the MIDNITE MONSTER HOP? Only THE MIGHTY MOLOCH knows. He and DJ GREG-GORY spin the splatter platters that really matter, making everyone lose their minds (and really, who needs it anyway?) Don’t lose your way – follow the Midnite Monster Hop on Facebook for all the upcoming events so you can come get lost, too.

So tear off your face, run screaming off into space because it’s time to press play. PHANTOM CREEP RADIO is back ON. THE. SCARE!!!!!!
