Leslie and the Lys - Zombie Killer
I'd been sitting on an opportunity to post this ridiculously, awesomely fun number by the goddess of weirdness and stretchy gold pants, Leslie Hall (aka Leslie and the Lys) for some time now. And seeing as how the first of October is the anniversary of the release of George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (from which Zombie Killer directly draws it's inspiration) I figured what better time than now.
Hailing from Ames, Iowa Leslie Hall sprung out of nowhere and became an internet sensation a few years back with her online hit How We Go Out (she was even featured on VH1's 20 Greatest Internet Superstars). Transforming her success into a cottage industry of strangeness (wherein she hawks her homemade wares at shows such as headbands, self designed, hilariously cool t-shirts, rugs made of spandex scraps and an assortment of other oddities not to mention her best offering, the music itself) Miss Hall regularly traverses the countryside with her backup girls, the Lys, and her Mobile Museum of Gem Sweaters in tow, preaching the divine word of Mother Gem to all she sees. As you're about to find out, you'd do well to listen to her.
Last year my husband, our dear friend Meghan and I began our very long and very tireless campaign to bring Miss Hall and her Lys to our little shit smear of a Midwestern town. There was much begging and pleading online on our part "Puuuuh-leeease come play here! We love you! We love you soooooo much! Rescue us from this hillbilly nightmare of boredom!". After much coaxing, Miss Hall at last relented and graced our local hole in the wall dive bar with her presence. To say that it was one of the best nights of music this no man's land has seen in ages would be an understatement. She rocked it and rocked us.
here. In addition to every other rad thing she's got going on in her store, there is also a Zombie Killer 45 pressed on blood red vinyl featuring the voice talents of none other than the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira. Get to shopping dear readers!
