MUSIC VIDEO: Western Standard Time – “Lon Chaney”

Western Standard Time has offered up a seasonal and timely music video for their cover of The Skatalites’ classic “Lon Chaney.” This extra ghostly version of the song offers ghoulish sounds not heard on the studio version released earlier this year. The video features a cast of dancing ska zombies. The ska big band performs as the crowd tries to dance without eating each other. Fairly standard Halloween fare.

The song is named for the actor of the 20s and 30s who was known for his horror films. This track is the first song off their second volume of big band renditions of Skatalites tunes available now. Happy Halloween!
