Virtual CD of the Month: Trick or Treat

Exclusively for our Patreon backers, this month’s Virtual CD is a celebration of all things weird, spooky and ghoulish, from the gothic rock of Bauhaus to the sinister synths of Japan, via the sheer lunacy of The Cramps and Toto Coelo. Eighteen ’80s cuts designed to make your Halloween go with a bang – the kind that happens unexpectedly at 3am and wakes you up. As always, it’s available to enjoy on either Spotify or Mixcloud depending on your tastes.

Our lovely Patreon backers can listen to Trick or Treat right now, but if you’re not already supporting us, sign up now for as little as $1 a month for access to this plus a whole load of other bonus content! Otherwise, well, you know, just look out for spiders, that’s all we can say.
