Description
As a kid, one of the things I liked to do on Friday night was watch grade B horror movies on TV. They used to play them on a show called "Shock Theatre". My brothers and I would watch them after the parents had turned in. A lot of them were made by American International Pictures, hence the title.

Lyrics
colour of a friday night
a puke shade of orange flows up &down the tv screen
runnin down the stairs to the dark
just my brothers n me
evelyn came out of the grave
or is this the one about the beast with a million eyes
i need to have a nightmare or two
before i sleep tonight
it's eleven o'clock
time to get shocked
c'mon down to the basement
if it's AIP then it's all right with me
if it's all right with you…
try to wipe the memory clean, but you're
messed up for life & you'll never be the same again
left you with a screaming skull
and a twisted brain
the people wanna see some action
i'm talking bout a revolution
throw in a little fornication
to keep annihilation away
AIP's alright with me

TV will rot your brain! This track simply rocks and is coffin load of fun! The movies may be grade B, but this track surely deserves an A+

oh yeah, fornication
LOVE the intro. You tripped and got some metal in your garage rock. Great nails on chalkboard dry distortion sound on the lead. Really dig the concept and the lyrical details, the whole thing has me right there with you and your brothers. Straight to the ipod.

garage metal
slightly metallic garagey sounds probably influenced by so-called "stoner rock" bands like fu manchu... or maybe just an unsuccessful attempt to sound like AC/DC... whatever, glad it made it to the TempiPod!

Loved it!
I remember those days as well, glued to the tube watching the latest horror unravel before me. A very fine and well done homage to those cheesy but always entertaining pictures. Samuel Z. Arkoff (I have a feeling the "Z" stood for nothing by the way) and Roger Corman would approve, believe me! Thanks for doing this. Michael

PS
That picture you have--I'm pretty sure that was the so-called "mosnter" from "The Beast with 1,000,000 Eyes",which was created by Paul Blaisdell (who also gave us the memorable "She Creature" as well as those adorable (?) "Saucer Men" with the lightbulb shaped heads and big blood shot eyes, remember them?

ARKOFF
I knew some AIP fans would come out of the woodwork... of course no reference would stump MJ's resident maven of pop-cultural arcana... interestingly, the other pix I was thinking about putting up were either the She-creature or the hilarious upside-down ice cream cone of "it conquered the world".
You might be aware of the "ARKOFF" formula for a successful movie, that the great man modestly came up with (and to which I alluded in the bridge of the song):
Action
Revolution
Killing
Oratory
Fantasy
Fornication

Anyway, thanks for the kind words!

Killer guitar lines & tone. Cool imagery in the lyrics "colour of a friday night" "puke shade of orange", "beast with a million eyes". Terrific energy.

glad the tone sounded alright, I always fret about getting a good tone...I used a tele through guitar rig on one channel and a digitech modeller in the other....

Vincent Price rocks...
Ah, "The House of Usher" and "The Pit and the Pendulum". Boy do they bring back memories. Vincent Price rocks. As does this homage to teen horror. Straight ahead rock - nothing subtle - just ripping. Good post. Peter.

AIP
Great collection of phrases. "throw in a little fornication to keep annihilation away" - how true. I totally dug the authentic feel, the drive, the mix. You're gonna have a bunch of listeners wondering what AIP means, and why they haven't seen it as an abbreviation for something on their twitter account or phone text. Cool track.

B Movies
My younger brother and I used to watch B horror flicks all the time. But, we used to rent VHS videos at the local video store and stay up all night to watch them. Ever watch "Bad Taste"? It is the king of all B flicks. Turns out, Peter Jackson (Lord of The Rings) directed and produced it. Man he came a long way since then!

Okay, enough babbling. This tune rocks, don't see how I missed it! Awesome lyrics & vocals, so creative! Great stuff!

thanks raven. I haven't seen bad taste yet, but I did see Peter Jackson's "Dead Alive" AKA "Braindead" -- really funny, sick movie...

I hate you! Your stuff is just too damn good. Can't you take up gardening or something.
Awesome tune guy. I love, love, love your voice as always. In fact I want your voice on a Transcontinentals tune.

thnx
thanks paddy!
The plant world collectively shudders at the thought of me taking up gardening.... I try to avoid it ever since I inadvertently killed my wife's hydrangeas a few years back....
I'm not that fond of my voice, but it would be fun to collab on something as suggested!
