Owww-OOOOO!

Hey, kids! Just a little spooky warning that the Not Daniel Johnston track "What the Devil (Is Going On?)" is set to appear on a Halloween compilation coming up very soon! It tells the tale of a small-town redneck checking out the big scary old house on the edge of town -- but what he thinks is a hot party is actually a Satanic cult meeting!

I wrote the tune and provide vocals & SFX, Lucien Stavenhagen plays Eugene Chadbourne-style guitar lix, and mister Daniel Johnston himself provides incredibly eerie haunted piano! We recorded this gem back in 1987 for my very limited homemade cassette "Yum! Gyp Music!" so it has been heard by very few people so far! Here's a link to the project:

And here's the lyrics to the song:

Crashed me a party last Saturday nite
Things i seen give me quite a fright
Everybody there was wearing black
Was about as much fun as a heart attack
I wasn't feeling very hot
Then I noticed that the punch was starting to clot!

Oh no!

What the devil's going on in here?
I just came along to drink some beer
Everything turned might queer!
What the devil's going on in here?

I started getting mighty scared
From the smell of brimstone in the air
Things were going from bad to worse
They started playing heavy metal records -- IN REVERSE!!!

Oh no!

What the devil's going on in here?
I just came along to drink some beer
Everything turned might queer!
What the devil's going on in here?

They all started calling out some strange name
And up come a demon all made of flame
Now, I'm a good old boy & I like to raise hell
But these folks do it a LITTLE TOO WELL!!!

Oh no!

What the devil's going on in here?
I just came along to drink some beer
Everything turned might queer!
What the devil's going on in here?

They laughed when I sat down at the piano.
They didn't think that I could play.
But their laughter turned to amazement,
When I got back up and carried it away...
