As the evenings draw in and the leaves fall from the trees, we’re always looking for the perfect soundtrack for Nerdoween and this year we’ve found a serious contender.
A local Detroit legend Gundella was better known as the “Green Witch” and even had her own column in a local paper called
This re-release of an obscure 70’s LP collects six recordings of her instructional lessons on how to cast a selection of spells including the timeless “How to discourage an unwanted suitor.” According to Modern Harmonic “Gundella tells you how to test your own psychic powers, make ritual candles, and mold little wax dolls. She tells you about traditional witchcraft, defines magic, and teaches you how to cast your own spells.” Keeping it in the family, the perfectly atmospheric backing tracks are performed by her son James. Both the editions contain brand new liner notes from the Green Witch’s daughter, but the vinyl LP also includes 16 pages of fantastic clippings about the great Gundella herself!
Will you be picking up this wildly witchy release? Can’t wait to hear the spooky sounds of spells this Halloween? Let us know in the comments!
