Manic Monday #9

At last boys and girls. I am so relieved to have this tune in a finished state. Those of you who have read the blog in the last couple of weeks know what I’m talking about. Also the idea to do a zombie tune was really hard.
A monster-tune is easy to do. Just add a church-organ, grunting, bats flapping, girls scream and there you go: a monster-mash!
But a Zombie-tune is something else. Your average zombie has a very limited vocabulary; ‘braaaaiiighnnss!’ And most zombie flicks I watched were musically -to say it gently-: disappointing.
For this tune I didn’t have much reference to get inspiration (apart from Len’s Zombie art). In the end I went for a Philicorda organ, a Ukelele, and a marimba. Together that makes this a very sunny ‘march of the zombies’. Thanks Len for the inspiration and idea.

Enjoy!

    The march of the zombies is wonderful!!! I’ll use it in my next 50′s style short horror film. by the way… can I call you to compose the soundtrack for this project? I’m shooting it in super8, to have a vintage atmosphere… let me know! PHILICORDA RULES THE WORLD!!!!

    I really gotta know – is there some way I could get the MP3 of this? It’s been stuck in my head ever since I first heard it and I want to own it!

    Am upstairs hiding from the Strauss new years concert. Surfed to your site for some relief. Thanks, just what my nerves needed. Phew!

    Each to his own. I was clapping along with the Radetzky March :)
