Groovie Ghoulies - Fun in the Dark
Lookout Records

Ah, it's been a while since I've heard some good ol' morbid pop-punk.  For
those of you unitiated with the Ghoulies, they're really nice, friendly,
cool, music-making people -- except that most of their songs have to do
with death, witchcraft, etc.  There is nothing wrong with this.  In fact, I
rather enjoy it, because I can never tell if  they're being serious or
joking.  With song titles as "(she's got a) Brain Scrambling Device,"
"Don't Make Me Kill You Again," and "(she's my) Vampire Girl" you can
pretty much figure out the lyrics without even hearing the band.  There's
one problem with that, though -- you should hear this band, because they
are masters of the Lookout! pop-punk style.  Plus there's girl vocals
sometimes!  You can't go wrong with a girl singing "Have your way with me,"
can you?
