3 stars Dracula's music cabaret is a collection of late 60's kitschy-psych rockin' songs. No much things can be said about the existence of the band. Their unique and enigmatic album could be used as soundtrack for cult B horror-nightmarish movies...such as Dracula 1972 A.D (Hammer Film Production), Brides of the Monster (...) The band hugely play the card of comedy and humour. All musical pieces can be considered as satirical sketches including tormented voices, concrete noises (chains of chambers of torture, collages of atmospheric-nocturnal-windy sounds). The rockin'instrumentation is added to the initial cinematic-theatrical trip and provides utterly trippy psych guitar tricks backed by haunted-creepy organic grooves. The opening track is a catchy and suggestive garagey psych rock piece including 60's epic Hammong organs, sensual psych guitars and sounds that could be taken from cabaret- absurd theatrical performances about the "grand guignol" or sadistic gothic-themes. A curiosity that is warmly recommended for fans of underground-vintage B movies and fans of druggy-psych pop of the sixties.
