American Horror Story (FX) Slinks Into Season 2 With More Vintage Fervor
The FX network hit a home run with American Horror Story, which is part way through its second season and continuing to garner critical acclaim. Starring Jessica Lange as a 1960’s asylum nun, the show aims to terrify viewers and is doing a good job so far.
Like many recent television hits (Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire), the production is set in a different era and goes to great lengths to avoid anachronism, thus the soundtrack is rich with vintage gems, including but not limited to a few delectable doo-wop cuts from the Fervor archives.
Joe Montgomery’s 1957 Liberty Bell recording The Bowling Song made it’s way into episode 207, along with The Tads’ Your Reason (1956) which was originally released on Dot Records.
Tune into tomorrow night at 10pm to catch the newest edition of American Horror Story, “Dark Cousin” (ep 207), featuring the two mid-century Fervor tracks and be prepared to be scared.
