The Tarantulas - Tarantula - Black Widow




What would Halloween be like without some spiders!?!?

Fortunately for us "The Tarantulas" give us these 2 creepy instrumentals from 1960 and now i give them to you... Just in time for the Hell-A-Day!

As for the band:

The Tarantulas first recorded as the Spyders and had some personnel changes before changing their name. Band members included Bobby Tucker, Fred Crook, Dan Rains, Sammy Creason, and Bill English. The Tarantulas' best known song is "Tarantula," and they recorded several other songs including "Like Spellbound" and "Kaw Liga." "Tarantula" was recorded at Fernwood studio in Memphis ca. 1960 and was released as a single (Atlantic-2102 b/w "Black Widow"). This song is included on the CD Fernwood Rock N Roll. After Bill Black passed away in 1965, Bobby Tucker became the lead for the Bill Black Combo and the group, which incorporated other Tarantulas members, recorded until the 1970s.
