A guest on my radio programme yesterday, brought in "The Ultimate Rockin' Halloween Party" from Viper Records of Liverpool. I've included the details on the Halloween thread but their catalogue is too good to ignore! Viper Records

It's a new one on me, and I come from Liverpool. Even more worryingly, they seem to have been around since 1999. http://www.the-viper-label.co.uk/
