Much to our delight, Laurel Aitken assumes his evil alter ego King Horror once again and this time channels Frankenstein.
If you've been following the Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular over the last four years you'll know that the King Horror tunes are some of the best! In years past he's given us his screaming tribute to the "Loch Ness Monster," his foreboding warning from the undead "Dracula Prince Of Darkness" and now his honor to the sinister laboratory created Frankenstein monster!
God, do I wish he had recorded more! All three songs mentioned are fantastic early reggae tunes in a late night horror host stylee and as an added bonus don't require much embellishment to get their point across.
What we're going to hear today is taken from a 1969 7" on the Nu Beat label and is definitely my favorite track in this years Spooktacular! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
If I was Count Dracula I'd sure hate to meet King Horror's Frankenstein in a dark alley... judging by the delivery and intensity of this tune he's gotta serious ass kickin' comin' his way!
