Music from the end of the world.

Midnight Looms 068 – DAY OF THE DEAD – November 2nd 2021

This broadcast happened to fall on the DAY OF THE DEAD so we decided to spend the entire episode doing something we don’t normally do. We’re gonna celebrate the lives and the music of great musicians that we lost this year. It’s a glorious way to turn a somber year of loss into a wonderful celebration of life and great art! 

Halloween is over for another year, so before we dive into the MUSIC FROM LEGENDS, Gobs drops one song, by GRACE LIGHTMAN, to let out all the melancholy and reset. After that, it’s wall-to-wall music from the greats! Check out the vitals below…

ROCK from SLIPKNOT and THE ROLLING STONES, who both lost DRUMMERS in 2021. 

EDM from HOUSE pioneer, PAUL JOHNSON, and producer-turned-TRANS-ACTIVIST, SOPHIE.

HIP HOP from BIZ MARKIE and DMX.

JAZZ from CHICK COREA and DR. LONNIE SMITH.

REGGAE from U-ROY and the true GOAT, LEE “SCRATCH” PERRY.

There’s even a jam from our host, GOBS’, favourite band, the BEASTIE BOYS, and a skit by one of his fav COMEDIANS, NORM MACDONALD.

May all these great artists !!!REST IN POWER!!!

The episode ends with HEAVY FEELS for the DISNEY LOVERS. There’s SO MUCH MORE too! We really went above and beyond with this one, which is the only way to do a Day Of The Dead celebration proper!
