Finders Keepers Records unleash LA REINE DES VAMPIRES 1967 on Cacophonic Records



Finders Keepers Records have just released the newest addition to their excellent Jean Rollin soundtrack library via their Cacophonic label. LA REINE DES VAMPIRES 1967 contains the amazing atonal free jazz work of composer Francois Tusques that graced Rollin's first two feature films, Rape of the Vampire and The Nude Vampire. Mastered from the original tapes, as submitted to Rollin, the sound quality on this release is really excellent and it is an essential addition to any hardcore Rollin fan's collection. More information on this vinyl only release (a digital copy code comes with each order) can be found over at Finders Keepers.

ART DECADES Updates

So it has been an incredibly busy last couple of weeks! For those who haven't been following the progress of Issue 1 of our upcoming print publication ART DECADES at our website, Facebook or Twitter pages here is a quick rundown. Our Indiegogo campaign is almost two weeks in and we have been thrilled with the response. We are at almost 75% of our goal and all the support has been so appreciated! Fingers crossed we can make our goal before March 28th when the campaign ends.



We did our first photo shoot for Issue 1 and it was such an incredible and beautiful experience. I know you all are going to be blown away by the work that our photographer, Whitley Brandenburg, and make-up artist and model, Rhiannon Lake Mills, did. Here is a short behind the scenes video of the shoot.

I also had the pleasure of conducting a Skype interview with our first cover star Celia Rowlson-Hall for the feature I am writing for Issue 1. Also, last week we had the great thrill of conducting our first in-person interview with one of our favorite bands CHAPPO! We spent about an hour chatting with these amazing guys and then caught their incredible show with Royal Teeth and Parade of Lights. Here is another behind the scenes video for you to enjoy.

Even though we are still in the early stages this has already been the most emotional and exciting experience of my creative life. I am so grateful for my team of Kelley, Lake and Whitley and am blown away by all the contributors we have lined up. The idea of sharing all their work this November brings me great, great joy.
