The Vampires' Sound Incorporation - The Message (1969)

Today’s Music for the Month of Halloween song was taken from the 1995 Crippled Rick Hot Wax! release ‘Vampyros Lesbos’, a compilation featuring choice cuts from Manfred Hübler & Siegfried Schwab’s ‘Psychedelic Dance Party’ and ‘Sexadelic’ LPs, both released in 1970 and featuring music written for the Jess Franco films ‘Vampyros Lesbos’, ‘She Kills in Ecstasy’, and the ‘The Devil Came from Akasava’.

It’s great party music, heavy in atmosphere and “far-out” ghoulish charm. In this particular song I really enjoy the organ playing and that wonderful rush of music toward the end. It’s such a smooth, sexy build up, but still very tongue-in-cheek. From what I understand "The Vampires' Sound Incorporation" is simply an alternate name for Manfred Hübler & Siegfried Schwab’s project.

In addition to “The Message”, ‘Vampyros Lesbos’ also includes the popular “The Lions And The Cucumber”, which was used in the 1997 Quentin Tarantino film ‘Jackie Brown’.

Also, 'The Lions And The Cucumber' always reminds me of Goblin's title song for 'La Via Della Droga'.
