Heartbeat - The Ghastly Ones - All Plastic Assembly Kit (CD, Album)

Top positive review. Reviewed in the United States on February 20, If the Cryptkeeper were to start his own surf rock band, it would most likely be The Ghastly Ones. The kind of nostalgic images that Rob Zombie has brought back into the public eye with his work, so it's no surprise that the Ghastly Ones are on Rob's short lived Zombie A Go-Go records label.

Haunting is a short album consisting of tunes that never quite reach the 3 minute mark. After every two songs or so there's a skit track. It's a cheesy story of The Ghastly Ones paying a visit to the lab of mad scientist Dr. These skits are quite corny, but they're harmless and suit the image and tone of the album. This is the only cd The Ghastly Ones have put out coz they broke up awhile later of course there are now internet rumors that's it's only a hiatus, and they may get back in action soon.

They did manage to record a song for the Spongebob Squarepants cartoon though. If you're not into surf rock or think these guys must sound like Rob Zombie coz they're on his label, I'd steer clear. If you like surf music, this is a good buy if you want to check out the dark side of surf. It's now out of print and not the easiest thing to find unless you want to pay an outrageous price for it online , but if you happen to see it around for a decent price, you'd better pick it up if you know what's good for you.

The Ghastly Ones may no be considered the best surf rock band out there, but they gotta be damn close. Top critical review. Reviewed in the United States on July 27, Ok, so I bought this album for the Disneyland: Haunted Mansion cover. I was'nt disappointed. Cool take on theme, musically. However the little storyline voice overs are awful. Unpollished and far from clever, these little audio bits fail. If only they had dropped a couple of bucks to bring in some cool voice over actors, it would have been a complete and cohesive success.

The Ghastly Ones may no be considered the best surf rock band out there, but they gotta be damn close. Not a bad little recording. The best of Horror Surf anywhere. The Ghastly Ones are, sadly, not performing together no more. Especially with the guitarist Dr. Lehos, whose playing is just incredible and exhilarating to listen to. Baron Shimmy Shivers is another piece of the puzzle, he drums so elegantly and he just shows how great his version of instrumental spook surf is, while at the same time adding the occasional vocals in their songs.

Even though the general plot of the album is deemed 'cheesy', it just adds a fun and intresting feel to the music. These tracks are put in an order that seems to go with the story line, for example: after Pacific Ghost Highway, The Ghastly Ones start playing Haulin' Hearse. Although I see how some people might see this as a horrible piece and waste of space, I don't see the reason why it should be put down as a mediocre album if they seem to enjoy the music.

As long as the music is enjoyed then the album is enjoyed just as much. Even the shoegazers and folkies are getting in on it, my favorite being the funereal droll of The Gothic Archies. And of course in the mainstream you have your Alice Coopers and your Rob Zombies. But one of my personal favorites is horror-infused surf music. They are the sonic equivalent to Full Moon Fever. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind hearing them is The Munsters.

Their sound is very much in the same vein as the classic, ingrained-in-the-brain theme song by composer Jack Marshall. The Ghastly Ones emerged from the grave to haunt the SoCal surf and garage scene in the fall of This limited edition CD quickly sold out.
