Horrible Houses - Songs Written and Recorded Under the Influence of the Yellow House - 2013



Some of these recordings are old. Some are recorded under the influence of folköl and John Fahey. A few are about John Carpenter's "Halloween" (1978). One is about a celebrity couple purchasing a haunted house. Another about a 17th century church. All of these songs are improvised, made up on the spot, recorded to cassette in a kitchen. The tapes were later buried in the garden of the Yellow House (autumn 2009), pictured above, and excavated in the merry month of May (2013). Because there is really nothing quite like a tape that's been carefully mastered by earth worms.
