Midnight Looms 070 – KRAMPUS BALL with SQUID LID – December 14th 2021

Tonight, we celebrate KRAMPUS. The dark side of Christmas. And we’re still in near disbelief about the guest we’ve got here to help us do it. If you live in Ontario, Canada, which is where we broadcast from, and you’re part of a GOTH or FETISH scene, you know this act. An infamous PERFORMANCE ART collective, and the organizer of the annual KRAMPUS BALL. The crew known as SQUID LID are on the show to perform inside our PLAYDEAD CULT DIY concert space. Wow!

Squid Lid don’t normally do studio-sessions, or interviews, but we managed to get both. Between songs you’re gonna hear our host, GOBS, chatting with Squid front-person, Zirco Fisher. They invited us to their annual horn making party. If you’ve been to Krampus Ball, you know horns are part of the tradition, and we hope you’ve got yours on. Squid Lid do a NINE INCH NAILS cover and then they just jam. What an experience! 

Before Squid takes over, Gobs sets the mood, with a set of GOTH, INDUSTRIAL, COLD WAVE, and FETISH PARTY TECHNO. He starts  with an XXX-RATED CHRISTMAS MASHUP (you read that correctly), and then a DOUBLE KILL of tunes from a rare 1986 Belgian Christmas comp. This episode has no shortage of NEW MUSIC. Fresh tunes from AMON TOBIN, CHARLES D ft. MANSHN, HANS ZIMMER, PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING, THE RESIDENTS, SUUNS, WADE and this months SYN (Song You Need) from Toronto Industrial act, ODONIS ODONIS. 

So much better then the usual corporate X-Mas bull!!
