Creature Feature, formed after a Halloween party in 2005, is singer and guitarist Curtis Rx and synthesizer player Erik X. They embrace the esthetic that every day is Halloween. This song is Creature Feature’s homage to Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies, published in 1963. I had the poster on my wall for years. Gorey illustrated books by Samuel Beckett, TS Eliot, Edward Lear and Muriel Spark, and wrote and illustrated many of his own works. He was known as an eccentric, always seen in public wearing big fur coats and white tennis shoes and living with a large number of cats.
