    Wow, Laurie Partridge really had a dark side.

      Susan Dey was, I think, my first media crush…  Weird show, though – I always thought Reuben the manager had a creepy paedovibe…

      The track reminds me of the “help me, somebody” cut on Byrne/Eno’s My Life in the Bush Of Ghosts. Anyone else hear that?

    What a nightmare.  Is this found footage?  Anybody recognize it?

    Excellent band, and a nice selection of 70s / 80s trash horror scenes to boot: Leák (Mystics in Bali), Robin Askwith in Tower of Evil…

    Not a single false note in what they did here, nor an instant’s hesitation.
    Whoever Demdike Stare is, they know what they’re after and what they’re doing.

    Is that Frances McDormand as the nurse at the beginning (0:32)?

    Most of this video is from the film Horror On Snape Island.

    That was just great.  The music puts me in mind of Steve Reich’s early tape-phase pieces.  And what editing in that video.  (I now feel fairly certain I have been fed some sort of subliminal command, as in “The Manchurian Candidate.”)
