elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

H.P. Lovecraft Audiobooks Part 3

This is the last installment of the H.P. Lovecraft audio books posts. I have included a special bonus that I'm sure Lovecraft enthusiasts will enjoy. It is a special on Lovecraft, titled "Weird Tales - The Strange Life of H.P. Lovecraft", that aired on BBC Radio in 2006. In this broadcast Geoff Ward examines the life of Lovecraft and the role that he played in contemporary horror fiction. It features appearances by Neil Gaiman and other notable sci-fi and horror authors.

this just gets better! thanks for the radio prog in particular. I know many have contributed their own take on the Lovecraftian Mythos but for a truly different take you have to visit 'The Misadventures of Hello Cthulhu: http://www.hello-cthulhu.com/?date=2003-11-30
where Cthulu finds him/itself cruelly trapped in the alternative pink and fluffy universe of hello kitty....
