This album is a heartfelt celebration of the musical idiom "splatter-folk" and of the often dark beauty of suspense, sexuality, horror and death. Thinguma*jigSaw does not in any way endorse the grim atrocities sometimes described in these lyrics, and Thinguma*jigSaw does not in any way encourage you to engage in such activities yourself. These "folk songs of horror and dread" are best understood as contemporary versions of classic ghost stories or scary tales told around the campfire, and as homages to the films of John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci and George Romero, and to the writing of Edgar Allan Poe, Roald Dahl, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Stephen King. But
everything is not for everybody. If you wouldn`t read short stories by
Edgar Allan Poe to your children, perhaps you wouldn`t want them to
hear this album either. And that`s perfectly fine.
