Music: The Rohan Theatre Band

The Rohan Theatre band are the brainchild of Rohan Kriwaczek. I thoroughly recommend you nipping over to the site to discover some unusual and inspiring music. The page has several pieces streaming through a player, and the music is pretty darn unique, though it does carry a touch of the Tom Waites with touches that are more than a little Eastern European in origin. As the site says: “collections of dark and often sleazy songs with instrumental accompaniments.”

The vampire connection? Check track 12 on the player, "Johnny Vampire"; a black humoured look at someone who believes himself to be a vampire. The band’s cds are available, from the site, at a bargain £6.00 + £1.00 P&P each.

Thanks to Mick Mercer's live journal for pointing me in Rohan’s direction.
