FRANK HAINES presents:
ZEENA SCHRECK, LIVE FROM THE EYE OF THE STORM
ZEENA, accompanied by New York musician Hisham Bharoocha (first percussion) and Danish musician Anders Hermund (second percussion), in a vocal based work as chant that taps into the ritual use of vocalized sacred syllables from Vajrayana, Shaktism and Sethian-Typhonian left-way tantric practices, originating from emptiness, gradually transforming into a sound and voice collage on a stage set design by Frank Haines. This will be Zeena’s first performance granted to her native country since her expatriation to Europe in 1990.

44 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH - From the Zeena Schreck Archives Posted to ZEENA – Official Zeena Schreck Facebook page:
“HER EYES HAD A PENETRATING LOOK..."
Photo essay of the Church of Satan, from the September 1969 issue of Finnish Men's Magazine 'Jallu', included the founder's then 5 year-old daughter Zeena [Schreck]. Text by Finnish-born photo-journalist, swinging '60s socialite, and San Francisco resident, Tabe Slioor.
Photo caption: ”Even the devil himself has a modern kitchen, but with no lack of satanic aspects. His Swedish-born wife declined to appear in the photographs, but daughter Zeena did without hesitation. To her, her father's job is a job, just like other professions.”
From the article: ”The kitchen is modern and spacious. There I also met with LaVey's 5-year-old daughter Zeena, who didn't have satanic features, at least not visibly. She had long fair hair like her mother. But when I chatted with the girl more closely, I saw that her eyes had a penetrating look, which I couldn't get to the bottom of. Perhaps that was due to the fact that her father's profession wasn't like others, perhaps that unusual look was for another reason...”

August 9, 2013
“We all have vices, visible and invisible. Some we deliberately keep secret. Others we don't even realize or we refuse to admit we have. We enjoy flaunting the vices that are colorful and socially acceptable enough. We laugh about the guilty pleasures we're embarrassed to admit, or the vices we doggedly believe are good for us. There's no special country where you can avoid vices. Nor a place that's better equipped than others to indulge in them. There's no commune that can protect you from them or expensive clinic able to keep you free of all vices. Because just when you isolate yourself from one category of vices, others appear to take their place. Every conceivable vice has its own online forums, chatrooms, cults, self-help groups, opponents, proponents, and pimps. Vices can be lots of fun, or they can turn your life into a living hell. Accept them for what they are, just another aspect of the mind's creation, and you can enjoy them - if you choose - without being broken by them.

Zeena & Nikolas Schreck in Curtis Harrington's Film USHER – Now on Blu-ray June 2013
On June 25th, 2013, The Curtis Harrington Short Film Collection including USHER will officially be released on Blu-ray along with several other classic short films from the 1940s and 50s by the cult director.
The release is a joint effort between Flicker Alley and Drag City featuring restorations carried out by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Film Archive.
Regarding Zeena's involvement in the making of Usher visit SCREEN/STAGE page on this site at:
REVIEW - Excerpts From Soiled Sinema's review of Curtis Harrington's film USHER :
''Curtis Harrington was certainly someone who had found solace in the darkness and Usher is certainly no exception to his life of glistening in the shadows. Partially founded by the brokering of his signed copy of Aleister Crowley’s The Book of Thoth : A Short Essay on the Tarot of the Egyptians by ex-Church of Satan members/occultists Zeena (daughter of CoS founder Anton LaVey) and Nikolas Schreck, Usher was Harrington’s first film in nearly two decades ... Featuring a number of idiosyncratic party guests, including a priest (ironically played by ex-Satanist Nikolas Schreck), a doctor, a butch blonde lesbian poetess (Zeena Schreck, daughter and 'magical killer' of Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey), and a couple bloated ...bluebloods, the birthday party begins merrily with wine and party masks...''
''A true ‘auteur’ piece summing up the dark, foreboding, and transcendental thread that defines director Curtis Harrington’s entire career as an experimental avant-garde filmmmaker turned cult horror master ... the final expression of a man who lived and breathed movies, especially of the absurdly melodramatic campy horror variety ... Usher is truly the last testament of an auteur filmmaker whose dreams were too big and idiosyncratic for the likes of the monetary-inclined culture-distorters of Hollywood, yet whose artistic spirit still managed to prevail in the end with one last work of conspicuously campy and creepy celluloid poetry ... Usher, like great wine (incidentally, Harrington’s favorite choice of drink), is the finespun product of maturity and purity.''

Radio Werewolf'sThe Vinyl Solution - Analog Artifacts: Ritual Instrumentals and Undercover Versions – CD now available at NORMAL MASS MARKET PRICE €15
From “Hail the Werewolf” Blog at http://styxhexenhammer666.blogspot.de/2012/12/radio-werewolf-vinyl-solution-review.html
I figured that I would make a review of the new Radio Werewolf album here, as I just got my copy in the mail, and trust me, less than 5 minutes later it was playing in my computers' CD drive (It will be amusing as well to pop it into the car and blast the music, confusing others with all the windows down.)
This is a very good quality piece- for those who have listened to Radio Werewolf's work before we have a dual problem- most of the tracks were taken from vinyl (which ensures they have somewhat low quality to begin with) and most of them are being listened to through Youtube, which further degrades the quality.
This piece has been masterfully restored, and starts out with a prologue piece from the Zurich Experiment in 1991, then goes on to 6 tracks from "The Lightning and the Sun" and 4 tracks from "Bring me the Head of Geraldo Rivera" (The best album title ever.)
It finishes with the Schrecks' tribute tracks to the SIN-atras, which I imagine pissed off Sinatra fans when they found out who had covered the songs.
The 14th track is a "mystery bonus track:" I could tell you what it is but, suffice it to say it's a cover song, which a lot of folks would enjoy.
Of course, these works are from Radio Werewolf's more ambient/experimental period, particularly with "Sleepwalker" (My favorite song from the later Radio Werewolf works) you can hear the atmospheric sound, and you can feel the mystic intent behind such works. A dark rainy night is the perfect atmosphere to listen to most of their immortal, subversive work!
Definitely worth buying.

"[...]The next night I go out again. 31st Avenue. A little misty but no need for the umbrella yet. A little nervous until I get my pace going. No one walks this far down. 30th Avenue. Look around, all clear, nobody there this time - cross. Start writing again, get into the swing of the sounds. Right. Get into the senses again, get into it. A bus hisses past. Late-night burning oil of Chinese take-out. Creeping smoke from cheerless bars. The desolate one or two bulbs in an apartment building filled with worker-drones already asleep, maybe always asleep.[...]"
CLICK HERE for brief excerpt from Zeena's A Short History of Buddhism in Berlin
"[...]A young couple bundled in Himalayan mountain gear couldn’t take their eyes off the bug. They were spellbound. The girl clutched her cheeks. Her boyfriend frowned exaggerated inquiry. Another woman in back scooted away. Others craned their necks to get a better look. Whispered debates over its species went on too long. Is it a beetle? Or a cockroach?! I sat close enough to the creature to see that it was just a fly.[...]"

The Manson File: Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman by Nikolas Schreck - regular priced mass market English edition at 39 Euros (excl. shipping). To order click PayPal button.
(Note: Signed limited edition sold out. Mass market edition is not autographed.)
Summing up 25 years of Nikolas Schreck's research into the Charles Manson phenomenon, this Book of Revelations illuminates unknown dimensions of Manson as philosopher, musician, Gnostic mystic, Mafia fall guy, revolutionary, and friend, lover and drug dealer to 1960s Hollywood's best-known rock stars and movie idols.
The first comprehensive study of Manson's life, times, crimes, and thought, this is the ultimate guide to the Manson mysteries, portraying the human being behind the media-created monster's many masks.
Drawing on police evidence suppressed during Manson's trial, Schreck exposes the "Helter Skelter" legend as one of the twentieth century's greatest cover-ups, unveils the hidden Mafia drug-dealing background of the "Manson murders" and traces the underworld connections linking the victims to their killers. The author's recent conversations with Manson and others directly involved in the psychedelic era's apocalypse allow the true story kept secret for decades to be told at last.
