Joey has just released her re-issuing of the classic all instrumental album, originally available thru Faithstrange, now exclusively through her own Ephemera. It’s a haunting journey, and as Joey describes it, part of her elemental series, this being her air album. For those of you who have already been fans of this work, or would like to introduce yourself to something very special out of Joey’s repertoire, this album is an elegant, stark and ethereal listen that you won’t regret.

I just discovered Heathen Harvest’s great review of The Last Drive In. What pleased me most was the fact that they not only recognized my love of horror film ( in particular classical horror ) but they were able to invoke my work in the same breath as Jorg Buttgereit’s Nekromantik and Joe D’Amato disemboweling someone in a Victorian castle
These specific examples might not have been the films that I had visualized while manifesting this work,but all the same, it’s a rare tribute when people can be as creative as to envision “Aren’t You His Mother Rosemary” underscoring such provocative film making! The contrast of this particularly gentle haunting melody aligned with graphic disturbing imagery is actually something that I’ve often thought would make for an exquisite interpretive counterpoint blending of the two mediums, these two contrasting themes. I’ve seen this technique used for example in Narciso Ibanez Serrador’s 1969 Gothic masterpiece The House That Screamed. John Moulder Brown’s slow motion attack on an innocent maiden set in dark hazy, muted tones as a beautifully poignant melody supports the violence of the scene. It serves as a very dramatic and arousing agent.
Bravo Heathen Harvest, you honor me!
