FRANKENSTEIN SOUND LAB – The World Turned Upside Down.
As some folks believe the world is due to end tomorrow, 21st December 2012, I thought I’d better get this track posted while there’s still time. Although not actually about the 21-12-12 possibilities, it will at least provide you with a suitable soundtrack for the last few minutes… probably the last few minutes before the next few minutes, but its always best to hedge your bets.
Another one from the Spirit Of Place project. Barnes Park in Sunderland is our favorite local public park.
Music made from photographs of the park, using the i2sm programme, plus natural sounds recorded on location.

An End To It… is the final track on the 2007 album It Was A Dark & Stormy Night, which was based loosely around the prophecy of St Malachy, who foretold the end of the Roman Catholic church. If he was correct, the next pope after the current one will be the last one.
This track details the fate of that last pope – beheaded, a stake driven through his heart, and buried on a dark and stormy night at a crossroads near Zagreb.
Of course this is just fiction (St Malachy didn’t specify such a grisly end) and be assured that no popes were harmed during the making of this track.
To hear other tracks from this album, or to download it free, go to:
Crab Telex Myth, from the album Project X.
Why is it called Crab Telex Myth ? There’s probably a reason, but I haven’t thought of it yet.
It does kind of sound like a Captain Beefheart title, though, which on reflection is probably as good a reason as any.
PROJECT X page on the Malice In Sunderland website:
An enthusiastic audience is most important and is essential to boosting the self-confidence of the performers.
That’s why we get ours from a sound effects album – satisfaction guaranteed every time.

Just a quick burst of sound and voice…
From the album More Songs About Elves & Flowers. There are a lot of short tracks, so we took the easy way out and gave them numbers instead of names. This therefore is track 11. If you want to hear more, you can find them here
Just to let you know that the entire Life Is Harsh In The Land Of Ghosts Theme Park album is now available for free listen and / or download from the Malice In Sunderland website-
This was the third FSL album, recorded on 4-track cassette and largely composed using chance operations – throwing dice mainly. It’s a kind of concept album, built around the idea of a weird and rather lethal theme park –
Handily situated just off of Junction 13 of the A666, The Land Of Ghosts Theme Park is the perfect day out for all the family.
The kids will love the antics of the Killer Clowns…but make sure they dont get too close. Although our Rapid Response Unit can usually recover bodies before they get too badly mutilated, there is an extra charge for this service.
Gasp at the Accidental Death Of A Vampire Hunter, impaled on his own stake, drop into the seance room and eavesdrop on The Unquiet Dead or thrill to the tales of the Brain In A Jar.
Then on for a meal at our Plague Pit restaurant, or perhaps a drink or two in the Hand Of Glory bar – you’ll probably need one !
You’ll have so much fun that you wont want to ever go home again.
And if you haven’t left the park by dusk, you may not be able to.
We’ve actually had several requests for infomation about the location of the Land Of Ghosts…. listen up, folks – it’s not real. It doesn’t exist.
But maybe it will one day…
