"I happened upon this CD by chance, following customer lists and suggestions until I stumbled upon something I never had any idea existed. I decided to pick it up as a total impulse buy, the cover and track names being what hooked me. Once it arrived it was everything I had hoped it would be - a hilarious cover insert and some awesome instrumental surf rock! Honestly, I wasn't really into surf before I got this (except for the Go-Nuts, who ALL of you should buy immediately after reading this review). Now, after owning it for less than a week I find myself fighting the urge to stand up and do the Ghastly Stomp right here in my cubicle as I listen to it as my morning ritual. This is an amazing, amazing CD, and I'll recommend it to anyone who likes surf rock and appreciates bands that don't take themselves too seriously. Five stars, no question about it!"
The Ghastleys are BACK!

"If you find this album, buy it. 'Nuff said. And just so's you know, the Ghastley Ones are back with a fourth member on Organ. I caught them at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood a few months back and they sound as spooky as ever. Catch them if you can or pick up their new B-sides disc "All Plastic Assembly Kit" or keep an eye out for a 7" vinyl (Flying Saucers Over Van Nuys) and a new studio album due out later this year. Should be filled with spooky surf goodness!"

"If the Cryptkeeper were to start his own surf rock band, it would most likely be The Ghastly Ones. These guys play some good surf rock, but instead of conjuring up images of surfing, beaches and everything California, this stuff will make you think of 60s horror films-old B&W footage of graveyards, hearses, creepy mansions and dancing go-go girls in zombie attire. The kind of nostalgic images that Rob Zombie has brought back into the public eye with his work, so it's no surprise that the Ghastly Ones are on Rob's short lived Zombie A Go-Go records label. Haunting is a short album consisting of tunes that never quite reach the 3 minute mark. After every two songs or so there's a skit track. It's a cheesy story of The Ghastly Ones paying a visit to the lab of mad scientist Dr. Diablo. These skits are quite corny, but they're harmless and suit the image and tone of the album. This is the only cd The Ghastly Ones have put out coz they broke up awhile later(of course there are now internet rumors that's it's only a hiatus, and they may get back in action soon). They did manage to record a song for the Spongebob Squarepants cartoon though. If you're not into surf rock or think these guys must sound like Rob Zombie coz they're on his label, I'd steer clear. If you like surf music, this is a good buy if you want to check out the dark side of surf. It's now out of print and not the easiest thing to find(unless you want to pay an outrageous price for it online), but if you happen to see it around for a decent price, you'd better pick it up if you know what's good for you. The Ghastly Ones may no be considered the best surf rock band out there, but they gotta be damn close."
