Bella Was a Junkie is Shadow Reichenstein 2003 which is a three song single.
Shadow Reichenstein is a Death-Rock/Psycho-billy band from Dallas, TX consisting of Shadow (vocals), Jimbo Nostrathomas (lead guitar), Robert "Chili" Galvano (bass guitar), Mark "Bake" Baker (drums).
This quite affordable album opens with "Borgo Pass/Dracula" consisting of short clipping of movie sound bites from the movie Dracula, kicking into sharp-witted lyrics monsters and and mayhem all set to a high-power punk beat.
The title track is another shining example of death-rock/psycho-billy at it's finest from this Ghoul rock band. Smart lyrics portray Hollywood's classic actor Bella Lugosi living the monstrous life of a type casted, fading actor addicted to morphine.
Recommended for fans of punk bands such as The Dammed, or of death-rock band such as The Brick Bats. And for Psycho-billy fans of Frankenstein.
