The Poet Ghoul’s latest collaboration with fellow poets, Edgar Allan Poe and William Shakespeare make for some suprising music in BoneYard’s latest album. Excerpts from “The Bells” by Poe detour into a rock’n paced song that still keeps “…time, time, time, In a sort of Runic rhyme.” “Witches Brew” is a collaboration with good pal, Willie Shakespeare from MACBETH, Act IV, Scene I: A cavern. In the middle, a boiling cauldron. Thunder. Enter the three Witches… Willie’s words and BoneYard’s arrangement turn more toward Blues rock for some “Double, double, toil and trouble.”
The art of Parody is at the heart of BoneYard’s poetry, music and mystique. From his mimicry of Scream’n Jay Hawkins in his performance of “You put a Spell on Me” (a parody, of ‘I put a Spell on You’), to the lyrical spoof of Jim Morrison and the Doors in the intro of his latest video, “Run from the Devil,” an original song composed by the poet Alan Pizzarelli.
From Interview with BoneYard, the Poet Ghoul (Full interview coming soon!)
Question: So, Let’s talk about your album, Gravest Hits. BoneYard, you have been proclaimed as, “ The worst selling recording artist of all time.” What is your response to this?
BoneYard: Yes, this is true. But in the spirit world, the album went platinum.
UPDATE: BoneYard has had 5 internet radio listeners … at a penny a listen that makes him a nickel. Keep those pennies coming!
