Dr. Sarcofiguy says he is "...part of a group of wonderfully bizarre people who perform as horror hosts. I have a show in Northern Virginia called Spooky Movie Television. I’ve been performing as the character Dr. Sarcofiguy (The first and only African-American Horror Host!) since 1995."
It's good to know that the regional tv horror host is one American institution that has not died out. Make that the singing regional tv horror host: like his predecessors John Zacherly, Tarantula Girl (aka Tarantula Ghoul) and Elvira, Dr. Sarcofiguy has a musical side. Check his debut album Demo(ns) The Many Moods of Dr. Sarcofiguy. It's pretty groovy r'n'b, recalling the likes of Stevie Wonder or Barry White. If Barry White sang about vampires, that is. Sarcofiguy isn't the unhinged singer that Screamin' Jay Hawkins was (he croons in a smooth baritone) but he's the closest thing to it today. The absolutely brilliant song "My Girlfriend is On Fire" is even in that lurching waltz tempo Hawkins favored for such songs as "I Put A Spell On You."
I'm in the process of switching over to a new computer, so I don't have a way to host mp3s right now (tho I should be able to resume putting albums up on Mediafire shortly). I wanted to post the song "My Girlfriend is On Fire," but since that ain't happenin', Dr. Sarcofiguy has personally posted - just for us! - a streaming version of it
along with another bizarre beauty, "Nosferatu." Oh, and Elvira's back! After 19 years. Don't know if "Movie Macabre" is available anywhere outside of Los Angeles right now, but it's worth a trip here to check it out - it's been spook-tacular so far.
