Apropos the discussion of scary music on last night’s Lollards (I will try and find time to give Coil the longer post it probably deserves), here’s a track by fairly obscure late 90s “imaginary soundtrack” dudes Cinema, called “They Nicknamed Me Evil”. What strikes me about this – which I think I reviewed favourably back in the NYLPM days – is how the band pile on almost every possible spooky or eerie soundtrack trick. But is the actual finished result at all scarifying? Judge for yourself – I think the vocals help a lot, even if they can’t push it from creepy to frightening.

 (And why are pianos so spooky anyway?)
