Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2012 - Track Twenty One - Your Teeth In My Neck

I'm bringing you this track a day early so that I can post the full 2012 Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular tomorrow on Halloween!  I just spent a sleepless night waiting to lose power in the midst of Hurricane Sandy and by the grace of god we didn't, we actually weathered the storm with minimal destruction.  My thoughts, prayers and best wishes go out to those who didn't fair as well along the east coast and especially to those in New Jersey and New York who really took a beating.  I was going to take this space to bitch about the fact that my kids are probably going to get screwed out of trick or treating but when people's lives and homes are destroyed it's not hard to realize that I should be counting my blessings and save the complaining for another time.  We'll make the best of Halloween 2012, regardless of what happens and enjoy the time we're together... this will definitely be a Halloween they won't forget.

We're wrapping up the Spooktacular with a classic cut from Scientist's 1981 Greensleeves LP, Scientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampire.  It's called "Your Teeth In My Neck" and it's the stripped down dub version of Michael Prophet's tune "Love and Unity."   I have added some Dr. Van Helsing audio from one of my favorite Dracula films, 1958's Hammer Films classic Horror of Dracula.  Peter Cushing sounds great on this bad-ass riddim!  Lots of love people!  Be safe and have a happy Halloween!!

Bless you, John - you go from strength to strength.
I never thought I'd hear Peter Cushing's vampire warning soliloquy over a Junjo riddim... so inspired!
Another year, another All Hallows Eve, and once again you've raised the bar. Can't thank you enough for such life-affirming goodness.

A tip of the severed head and the most haunting of Halloweens to you and yours...

Creaks and Groans,

P.S. PLEASE pass on our praise to Roger. I seriously need some of these images to frame. Would you ever put him in touch with me? Pretty please??
