Season of the witch


WCBN's fabulous postpunk and new wave show, "Some Faraway Beach," did a Halloween theme on Sunday. There was no "Bela Lugosi's Dead" or "Death Disco," which was a shame (used in previous years, maybe?), but This Mortail Coil was inspired. Serene, quietly disturbing, a huge relief after the Misfits/Motörhead/DKs bludgeoning--total highlight of the set.

Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians, "My Wife and My Dead wife"
Virgin Prunes, "Lovelornalimbo"
Milkshake Melon, "What Did You Do with the Body?
Mx-80 Sound, Theme from Halloween
B-52s, "Devil in my Car"
Siouxsie and the Banshees, "The Killing Jar"
Front 242, "Tragedy for You"
Bigod 40, "The Bog"
The Misfits, "Halloween"
Motörhead, "Go to Hell"
Dead Kennedys, "Halloween"
This Mortal Coil, "Tarantula"
Ramones, "Pet Sematary"
