Comments

  • umm...more CCR

    Bubba Sparxxx - Deliverance

    Okay, a terrible recommendation in the context of your list, but southern rap needs to be represented in there somewhere I think.
  • I'd throw in a bit more of the classic old blues in there. You've got one Robert Johnson, but you need more. That shit can get really dark and creepy. Try some Blind Lemon Jefferson for haunting moments and some early John Lee Hooker for a bit more energy and twang.
  • He's from the wrong side of the ocean, but you can't go wrong with The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.
  • Wow dude, that was excellent. I've never heard of Arthur Brown before.
  • I do what I can to spread the gospel of Arthur Brown.

    Hmm. Twang is good, so long as it doesn't go all the way into country.

    More Hooker, then.

    I also think there's a CCR song I was looking for; something about graveyards, I think. Should dig.

    On Arthur Brown: Weird. But it's not that far from my aim; clearly, I must find more sample.

    (However: No rap! No no no! ACK! Rap bad! Levi hiss!)
  • Giving suggestions for music is like giving suggestions on sexual partners.
    So, here goes anyway...

    Suzie Q - CCR

    Not Fade Away - Buddy Holly

    Isis - Bob Dylan

    anything by The Band/Levon Helm

    and if it were me, I'd toss Thurogood to the curb and toss in some Bo Diddley.

    And what no Elvis? For shame!

    I HOPE YOUR MONSTER HUNTERS DIE
  • Oh, and Memphis Minnie.
    There's something about a women singing about heartbreak that makes me want to kill vampires.
    Okay, that's all.
  • Atomic Fireballs—The Man With The Hex
    Aerosmith—Eat The Rich album or Permanent Vacation
    Eric Clapton
  • Southern Culture on the Skids - Walk Like a Camel

    If we're talking Aerosmith I'd have to recommend Hangman Jury. Awesome song, much overlooked.

    This is supposed to be a modern game and you aren't going to have any Jugalo action?
  • How about:

    CCR "I Put A Spell On You" - my favorite CCR song!
    Gorillaz - "Clint Eastwood" and "Latin Simone"

    Maybe some Raconteurs or White Stripes?

    - Colin
  • Buddy Holly & Elvis. Must find........ And Susie Q from CCR fits.

    So very perfect.

    And I hope they give in to the taint of monstrosity and start killing each other. Here's hoping.

    My hate for such music is as deep, black, and hot as the pit itself.
  • That may well be, but it is very appropriate to the genre. I'm no fan of this weird new horror rap trend but it's got it all: deep south, murder, white trash. Maybe find one song to use for the badguy and your hate for the music will help amp up the dark tension in the game!

    But dismissing all rap? That's just ignorance.
  • So I'm not really sure of the sort of music you're looking for, but hopefully this is in the right ballpark.

    Romeo's Distress by Christian Death.
    The Girl by Southern Death Cult. They might have even more fitting songs, but this is the only one I really know.
    Black Planet by The Sisters of Mercy.

    In general, deathrock might be a good genre to look through.
  • I don't know why this didn't occur to me the moment I saw this thread.

    Danzig. You need Danzig. Lots of Danzig.
  • Posted By: Epidiah RavacholI don't know why this didn't occur to me the moment I saw this thread.

    Danzig. You needDanzig. Lots ofDanzig.
    I'm The One is pitch-perfect.

    (Also, listening to lots of Southern Death Cult, and trying to decide what I think. I think I like it, but I'm not sure)
  • Nina Simone. Otis Redding. Jimi Hendrix.
  • Southern AND Creepy. Feh. first of all,i second all that's been said for the vintage part: CCR, Hendrix, Nina Simone.

    I would try something that comes out of any one of Dax Riggs' band (Acid Bath: VERY violent, slow and sludgy, psychedelic. Agents of Oblivion: mixture of Blues, heavier guitars and psychedelia, in a very dark mood, Deadboy and the Elephantmen: similar to Agents of Oblivion)

    Some of Down's slower songs (but, as you also have AC/DC and stuff, in there, i'd just say anything by Down, or Almost)

    I listened to them once or twice, so i don't really know, but i clearly remember i found music by Slint very, very creepy.

    Another band i've mostly heard of, you should consider putting some Hawkwind in it. And some Quicksilver Messenger Service. Odd mixture of southern, country and psychedelia, again.

    Also, something from bands from the Southern/Stoner/Sludge scene (different scenes, but often intersecting)..

    Unfortunately, my preferences in music are slightly different, so my interest in these bands is usaually half-hearted, i listn to them once in a while and know a couple songs, but not much more. just browse through the names and see if you find something that really gets you.

    Also, if it's not already in the list... What about Born to be Wild?
  • Tupelo by Nick Cave and Bad Seeds might be appropriate.

    Levi,

    I think I'ma have to write you a song. I'm getting an urge to.

    EDIT:
    In the mean time, consider "Witch Trails," which you can hear on my old MySpace that I just remembered still exists, and which I can email to you if you like it.

    Why, yes, that would be... extremely shiny.

    ...Yeah, would like that quite a bit. It suits. levi.kornelsen@gmail.com is me.

    Agreed. The south has rap.

    Also, put some Earth on there. Especially Hex and The Bees Made Honey...
