Listen: Tropic Of Cancer – Black Moods mix

Not looking forward to hearing the theme song from Ghostbusters, “Thriller”, “The Monster Mash” or, God forbid, horrid house remixes of the aforementioned and more at Halloween parties this weekend? Don’t worry – Tropic Of Cancer have got you covered.

The Los Angeles band have ressurected Black Moods, a chillingly great 32 track all vinyl selection originally recorded some two years ago for the Ladies & Gents Auxiliary website and now downloadable for your party needs. Including perhaps our favourite Downwards jam in “Brand New Head” from DVA Damas, as well as classic cuts from ESG, Bush Tetras, PIL The Ramones and much more, Camella Lobo also makes room for Screaming Lord Sutch, the much missed musician and latterday political activist.
