The Horror Honeys: Sci-Friday Jam - 'Earth People'

Sci-Friday Jam - 'Earth People'



First patient, pull out the skull remove the cancer
Breakin' his back chisel necks for the answer
Supersonic bionic robot voodoo power
Equator ex my chance to to flex skills on Ampex
With power meters and heaters gauge anti-freeze


Oh, Dr. Octagon. This crazy, theatrical fellow was my first introduction to the mashed-up world of horror and music and I can't even begin to think of a better entry to the genre. Dr. Octagon, an extraterrestrial, time-traveling gynecologist from Jupiter, was the alter-ego of musician Keith Matthew Thornton. Octagon's music was a direct extension of his persona, offering jams about space surgery, sex, and scatological humor, which I normally loathe but was willing to overlook because he was just so damn weird. It was like Iggy Stardust had a strange, MC cousin with a surgery fetish. And to this day, I love the shit out of the music Thornton did as Dr. Octagon, and the work he has done as himself.

If you don't know who he is, now is the time to learn, darklings! ~RH
