Verge of Light just released the digital version of Jerome Deppe’s excellent album “Showtunes for the Damned.” This was originally released in 2008 as a CD and Graphic Novel (which is still available here).
Here's an excerpt of a review by Simon Collins, from Judas Kiss Webzine:
“Showtunes For The Damned is the fourth solo album from Baltimore-based musician Jerome Deppe. In addition to being a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, and playing guitar for David E. Williams as well as recording his own music, Jerome is a painter and photographer, and Showtunes… is a multi-media showcase for his plethora of talents. [… the album] is a tour-de-force of dark pop, rising above the gravitational pull of its obvious 80s industrial, goth and post-punk influences to offer a stark, unflinching commentary on living in the end-times.”
You can listen / purchase this over at bandcamp (or in the player below). The album is also available through iTunes America will be for sale via Amazon MP3 shortly.
As you can see on the right, "Showtunes for the Damned" is the first Colors of the Dark Bandcamp Album of the Month. If you know a release on bandcamp that you think would make a good Album of the Month please email us a link to check out.
