Reverend Tom Frost is a musician, a singer, a songwriter and his blog Spread The Good Word, along with his bone-chillingly superb Halloween mixes were a huge inspiration in getting me started in doing my own ten years ago. Reverend Tom lives in Paris France and aside from his skill in compiling great mixes, he performs and records his own brand of blues, rock, country, gospel that really kicks ass. Often compared to Tom Waits and a "young, belligerent and drunk Jerry Lee Lewis," Reverend Frost is the real deal! How's this for timing? The Good Reverend's newest album Mysteries And Manners was released just three days ago and I advise you to check it out here! Thanks Tom for wading into the reggae realm once again this year!
"The Dark Destroyer! Bewaaaare! Bewaaaare! It's a Dub Halloween seance!
Welcome to the start off the 2016 Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular!
Hi, I'm Rev. Frost, you may remember me from the 2015 Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular? Yep, our international John asked me to write a lil' something, once more. It's Halloween, it's John, I couldn't refuse. The bass in the center of a majestic epic tune... wookay, if you're reading this, you know why you're here, and you already know who Osbourne 'King Tubby' Ruddock was...
Yep, as we're still mourning the passing of Gene Wilder, this tune gives us hope and chills...'cos like Dr Fronkonsteen, King Tubby truly understood sound in a scientific sense. He knew how the circuits worked and what the electrons did. The Dub is aliiiive, it's aliiiiive!
So, by the powers vested in this track, I pronounce this Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular season open! DESTINY! DESTINY! NO ESCAPING THAT FOR ME!'
