We started out in 1982 as Bitch, for various reasons our first choice for a name (Halloween) was rejected by one of the members of the band. After 1 year, that member was no longer in the band and we changed our name to our original choice live on stage in front of a sold out crowd. It was billed as the final show for BITCH "The Heavy Metal Horror Show". People were bummed out, because they thought we were breaking up. We surprised them by announcing the name change and pulling down the Bitch backdrop to reveal the brand new HALLOWEEN banner. It was awesome, how many bands can say they were born on stage? We can...
The studio has always been like a chamber of horrors for me personally. I always seem to get a cold or something right before we do anything big. Maybe it's physiological I don't know. And to top it off I have sinus trouble so usually the studio crew are not happy with me, it makes things difficult.
Well, speaking for myself, I have never tried to hide the fact that I was never happy with the production on the early recordings. We just didn't have the money to do them right. I do love the songs though.
