1 To Z: The Amazing Snakeheads - 'Nighttime'

I wonder if my "regular" 1 To Z feature will ever reach 'Z'? At the current rate that I'm going about it, probably not. Today's entry is a track taken from the extraordinary 'Amphetamine Ballads', the debut LP from The Amazing Snakeheads. I can only describe the creepy romp of 'Nighttime' as vaguely resembling The Cramps fronted by Groundskeeper Willie from The Simpsons. If that description doesn't make you want to listen, nothing will. The band recently underwent some line-up changes after frontman Dale Barclay announced on Facebook that The Amazing Snakeheads will be playing throughout the summer with a new line up. Andrew Pattie and Scott Duff will be joining me on stage." He later added "In the interest of transparency and fairness I will say this. William quit the band and Jordon knows why him and I are no longer friends. Fuck anyone who thinks otherwise. I have no intentions of pissing over something that meant so much to me so will never go into detail of the where, why and when of what has happened, especially on this barrel of bullshit..."
