Ooky Spooky: Voltaire

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.
