MORGUE SHADOW

Morgue Shadow Pale by Comparison

In 1993 I invented a genre I called vampire rap. Vampire rap came about after watching Bram Stoker's Dracula too many times & listening to Straight Outta Compton too many times. It seemed like a simple enough idea to swap the gangster imagery in hiphop for vampire imagery. Instead of hating the police, hating the clergy. & replacing Eazy-E with Rozz Williams......

MC Ghoul & the Morgue Shadow "I'm a Necro" MP3

This project remains unfinished. The 'band' name has changed several times. It started as Pasty Chumps, then changed to Pasty Chimps. Then Morgue Chimps, then Ghouly F'ing Whatever ...

& I think "Morgue Shadow" was the name we used that time Todd & I opened for Devilcake at Apollo's. We went on first, with the drum machine, he played bass, I played guitar & sang a few songs.

Morgue Shadow.
Holy shit. Was that the Andre Von Dredd shit?

Man. I'm reading through some of these posts and realize I don't really know this 'Todd' cat at all....let alone did I have any idea at the time (or now) how much shit you were into musically.


I'm sorry. Shades of my asshole-behavior rumble up when I read some of this stuff and wished a lot of it had gone down a lot differently than it did.
