Viva Blackpool (2006)
I don't think the DVD has been released here in the US, but keep your eyes peeled for it when it does and if it does. The plot is that soon after local entrepreneur Ripley Holden (Morrissey) opens his arcade in his beloved home town of Blackpool, a murder investigation makes tears at the fabric of his personal and professional lives. This is a brilliantly acted and addictive TV show and is basically a mixture between the Singing Detective, Coronation Street and Cracker. A must-see!!
Limited Edition and my gift to a best friend. A two disc version that contains eight live tracks never before released -recorded during his 2009 World Tour.
This is wonderfully great for anyone who is a fan of Morrissey. Such a great idea!

I only recently discovered this guy in my effort to find more Halloween music and he has quickly become one of my favorite recording artists. Havanna born Voltaire (if that IS his real name...) makes dinner music for the Addams family... His musical style is unique, with salsa rythms, surfrock/psychobilly drums and guitar and gypsy caberet violins... think Danny Elfman, Tom Waits and Cab Calloway if they all got together to jam. The song topics run the range of typical 50's horror movie fair: zombies, devils, vampires but all interpreted with a modern wicked sense of humor...dark as pitch humor that makes "evil" fun... this is music for any occassion as long as such occassion may end in a plan to injure puppies and dig up corpses.
