Rockin’ The Mike: A Very Fake. Hallowe’en


It’s felt like far too long since I’ve seen or heard from Mike.  Less a ghost than a rumour, that seems our boy at the moment.  Or rather like some unutterable curse that purses the lips of devout friend and passing acquaintance alike, no one seems to be willing to speak of it.  Admittedly, I haven’t exactly been keeping up appearances myself lately.

Hallowe’en.  Anyone can contribute by leaving  your chosen artist and track name in the comments section.  If your track is selected for inclusion on the comp, you’ll receive a limited edition copy of the compilation which’ll include some fancy-schmancy album art designed by the editorial staff.  I’m looking for ‘spooky’, ‘atmospheric’ or ‘thematic’ and am open to suggestion as long as it falls within those admittedly loose parameters.  There are a few rules though:
