Song of the Moment

“Bat Thing” by Castration Squad


Happy Halloween, my little spooky friends! In honor of this dark day, today’s song of the moment is “Bat Thing” by my favorite deathrock band, Castration Squad.  Castration Squad was a lovely group of ghouls from California featuring Shannon Wilhelm (vocals), Mary Bat-Thing (vocals), Tiffany Kennedy (keyboards), Alice Bag (bass), Tracy Lea (guitar) and Elissa Bello (drums). And… it was quite the supergroup! Mary Bat Thing went on to be Dinah Cancer of 45 Grave and we all know and love Alice Bag (our Women in Rock issue 001 covergirl). Also, Elissa Bello had a brief stint drumming in the Go-Go’s. Check out their rendition of “Wild Thing.” They’ve altered the lyrics to make it just a little bit spookier.
