What's 'Nilbog' Spelled Backwards?

LA's own Nilbog are the world's only horror-movie soundtrack cover band. Which is a cool concept, but they can also really play, they skip the cliched tunes (no "Psycho" or "Halloween" themes here), and bassist Bret is the man behind the Post-Punk Junk and Egg City Radio blogs. So good they should do real soundtracks.  Listen to 'em here..that is, if you ain't chicken:

Do I win the Cadillac?

I like this band (even though they don't appear to play ukuleles).

I was hoping someone would tell me - the suspense was killing me.

I like the idea of a horror soundtrack played on a ukulele. Is it remotely possible to play anything spooky on a ukulele? (a spooky uke?) That's like death-metal banjo, or goth yodeling.

So THAT'S what Bret has been up to all this time!

Ukulele could fit there, that would be interesting.

Reminded me of the Devil Music Ensemble who create soundtracks for movies of the 20's

I suppose you're aware that Goblin was an Italian band well known for the soundtrack recordings of Dario Argento's Suspiria, as well as many of his other films. Their LP "Roller" from 1975 was their first non-soundtrack album, and a great prog-rock release.

Indeed, RobJam, Niblog in fact cover some Argento themes, inc. "Suspiria."
