OK, not really… but thanks to the musical stylings of one of the cast members, you can sit back and imagine what it might be like!

This audio track comes courtesy of Michael Render, who played “Willard” in SKINNED ALIVE. Mike is a talented musician first & foremost, having been a founding member of Joy Circuit, the popular Akron-area band back in the ’80s who also contributed an end title track, “The Answer”, to THE DEAD NEXT DOOR. Mike’s other contributions to the Tempe Universe include a cameo in ROBOT NINJA and guitar tracks on the original (VHS-era) version of “Into The Black” (the end title track from OZONE).

And now comes this, a musical version of the scene in SKINNED ALIVE where the Willard character meets his untimely fate at the hands of Phink, Violet and Crawldaddy. It’s a hoot!

Ready for a blast from the past? I lost my sanity recently and decided to start digging into the Tempe audio vaults and issue a series of soundtrack releases. Now, die-hards know that the Tempe website has been selling some homegrown CD and cassette soundtracks for awhile now, but those were never intended for the general public (or people with good musical taste, LOL).

That said, being the completist that I am, I figured since I’ve almost wrapped up my years-long quest to release all of my old flicks on DVD (only the worst of the lot, ROBOT NINJA, remains), there was no harm in doing the same for the soundtrack music. Especially in these heady iTunes days where a simple click and charge to the credit card can get you fresh music!
