THE GIALLOS FLAME presents RON’S PSYCHEDELIC BREAKFAST MIX
“Giallos Flame is primarily the product of multi-instrumentalist Ron Graham, who writes and performs all his own material – apart from the contributions of various session musicians (mostly on drums). Forming the band in 2001 as a way of paying fond tribute to the movie themes he loved while growing up in the ‘80s, Graham made a bloody splash with the Flame’s self-titled debut album, which got many North American fans’ attention thanks to a favorable review in Rue Morgue magazine. Though their distribution is still fairly limited, the band’s popularity has grown quite a bit over the past few years by word of mouth or on the convention circuit, and thankfully most of their output is finally available for digital download through most of the main vendors – including the most recent full-length effort House at the Edge of the Dark.
Graham’s influences are purely cinematic – more specifically, the kinds of cinema I love the most: Italian horror flicks and poliziotteschi (police thrillers) from the ‘70s and ‘80s, exploitation and slasher movies from the same period, and all the various genre offerings whose unique character came in part (or in whole) from the creative contributions of legendary artists Goblin, Ennio Morricone, John Carpenter, and Tangerine Dream – not to mention lesser-known but no less revered Italian composers like Fabio Frizzi, Riz Ortolani and Bruno Nicolai. You may not know some of these composers by name, but if you’re even remotely interested in horror and exploitation films from the last three decades, you’ve probably heard most of their work in some form or other.” – Fear Net
