Eclectic Mainline 31st October 2012

Yesterday I learnt that Halloween has its origins in a Pagan festival called Samhain.  It looks like a rather good festival, without all the nonsense that comes with modern Halloween.  Anyway, before I learnt this, I had already intended to play this Roky Erickson tune, what with my show falling on 31st October and all:

Also featured in this week’s show was the Mark Pritchard’s Harmonic 313 remix of his collaboration with Wiley, “Money Man”:
