The Ballad of Barnabas Collins

Artist/writer/musician Mike Hoffman performs an acoustic version of his song The Ballad of Barnabas Collins, one of two Dark Shadows-themed songs from his album Monster University Pajama Party. There's no evidence that he's related to that "woman doctor" from Wyndcliffe Sanitarium, but he's amassed quite an impressive collection of lunacy over at his website.

I own Monster University Pajama Party and think it's pretty terrific. It's not another lame post-punk ripoff of The Misfits, and instead dips into the well of guys like Zacherle and Bobby "Boris" Pickett. It's a lot of fun, and kind of innocent in its own way.
