The Joup Friday Album: The Soft Moon – Deeper

Deeper - the Soft MoonFirst, there is NO WAY in Hell I can top Chester’s selection from last week. If someone can win the Friday Album, well, I think our friend from across the pond just did. However, this is a perpetual method of entertainment of no small importance to the mortals that employee me at Joup, so let me do my part in things. Chester tagged Sonny but the lines of communication became muddled and I’ve been tasked with stepping in for the week. So let me step right on in…

The Joup Friday Album – Christmas Edition

A World Lit Only by Yule Time Fire

I’d imagine it was with a smiling sense of irony that Amy tagged me for this christmas edition of The Joup Friday Album. It certainly was with that same sense of gleeful irony that I accepted the challenge. You see, although I am a devilish manifestation of the evil one, well, I can’t say that I do not, in some way, fall in for the cheer and good times of the holiday season. The bells, garland, trees and lights; buttered rum, santa slippers and stockings hung by the chimney with care. We never had that where I’m from, and although I remained steadfastly against it for the first few decades I spent on this Earthly plane, well, it won me over.

The Joup Friday Album – All Hallows Edition

bauhausConceding to my Will, Daniel has cleared the path to allow me to take the helm for this special weekend, that which ushers in the night of the dead, my personal favorite time of the year, Sam Hain, All Hallows, Halloween! And I have a tasty treat for you, oh true believers in all that is dark and arcane. That’s right, I’m kicking this shit off right, because what better way to usher in the darkest, most sinister night of the year than to have a Devil-ridden goat spin a disc for you? And what better disc to begin with than the original deth rock/contemporary gothic masters Bauhaus’s first entry into the musical canon of the damned?

Note: Katie will answer the call of Chester’s tag next week after she successfully prepares for the coming educational apocalypse set to descend upon the townships of her residence in nary a day or two. In the meantime, Black Philip is always happy to fill in and attempt to corrupt the minds of our readers.

Black Philip, take it away…

Thank you Shawn. You know, I never expected this to happen to me, but rather inadvertently I have become known for something of a ‘catch phrase’.

The Joup Friday Album: Miranda Sex Garden – Fairytales of Slavery

MSGOriginally Tommy tagged Daniel, but I’ve just come on board here at Joup and haven’t had a chance to properly introduce myself so I asked young Daniel if I could squeeze in this week and he was cool with it. So next week, look out, because Daniel will have something good. In the meantime, I have something I think speaks volumes about who I am, what I like and the time of year we are entering.

Last Sunday was Beltane. That’s important to me. So is this record, which is essentially a folktale put to music. And being the product of a folktale myself, well, I guess I am predisposed for that sort of thing. Anyway, I digress…
