Au Revoir!

Dear friends and family and fans,

We’re sad to announce that Igor Spectre has come to the end of its run, after 13 good years.

We’d like to thank everybody who was a part of our story, and everybody who lost some hearing at one or more of our shows.

You were what made it happen.

In the words of the immortal Hedwig:

“Thank you.  Both of you.”

And adieu!

We love you,

Igor Spectre

Igor Spectre music in new Robert Williams Documentary, Mr. Bitchin

mary_robtwilliamsIgor keyboardist MARY C. REESE aka MARY SONIC WOO directed and edited the new documentary about legendary L.A. low-brow artist, Robert Williams, MR. BITCHIN’.  Featuring the music of IGOR SPECTRE.

The premiere was last night at the Egyptian in Hollywood, and it was, well, bitchin’.

Robert Williams’ art can’t be summed up by just one of his works, but arguably the work that’s reached the largest audience is Appetite For Destruction, which Guns’n’Roses asked to use for their 1987 album (see below)


The music of Igor Spectre that’s featured in the film comes primarily from our 2009 album, Tramps in Stereo, which is available at iTunes here:

The Girl Creeps Me Out

Igor guitarist down for shoulder surgery

“Damn the rotator cuff, full speed ahead” was a bit premature, it turns out.

Igor guitarist B. O’Malley went under the knife (and some tasty anesthesia) for arthroscopic shoulder surgery April 30.

This after a February 2012 hurling of a cinder block that tore O’Malley’s right shoulder cartilage (“labrum,” which sounds eerily like “labia”) in the front and back.

Minimum 4 weeks in a sling, followed by 4-7 months of physical therapy.

Hopefully somewhere in there, Igor will have her guitarist back.

Meanwhile, the rest of the band doesn’t notice the guitar’s absence, and keeps playing an extraordinarily anemic version of “Blood Whore.”
