J.C. & The Soul Angels

Nightmare Strut

J.C. & The Soul Angels’ funky and ghoulish “Nightmare Strut” is an absolute essential for your Halloween playlist. A spooky intro—replete with creaking doors, howling wind, and screams—gives way to a fuzzy, wah-wah guitar infused groove. Helmed by bandleader J.C. Hunter, this obscure combo cut three more records for the Ohio-based Tammy label throughout the ’70s. Stay tuned for a compilation of the Soul Angels complete works.
