Just in time for halloween Montreal’s irrepressible ¡FLIST! has released a spooktacular cover of “Till The Following Night” by 1960s weirdo UK singer Screaming Lord Sutch. The ¡FLIST! version eschews the sound effects and saxophones of the original in favor of his typical synth driven Bad Seedsesque slinking, managing to wring moments of genuine menace out of what is admittedly a novelty song.  The Joe Meek produced original, which (bizarrely) features lead guitar from Jimmy Page, and had it’s title changed from “My Big Black Coffin” in order to “protect the innocent,” is given a neat little write up here, a worthwhile read for any fans of 60s pop oddity. Happy haunting boys and ghouls!
