Ryan ‘Lord’ Thomas

Lord Thomas, a long time DJ in the Norfolk & Richmond Virginia scenes, can often be found at The Face. He has a love for all things 60s, and quite a collection of records. When Ryan’s not one of the faces, The Lord is managing his own podcast or spinning at one of his nights. He brings the more 60s Garage, PowerPop sound to the show in defiance of Kurtis’ love for Crossover, 2-step, and Disco. He’s one hell of a co-pilot.

This one's a real psychedelic swinger with groovy sitar action!

Hot Blood - Soul Dracula

Hot Blood – Soul Dracula

First released in 1975 on French label Disques Carrere, and it seems that Hot Blood were German, and their discography was mainly focused on Halloween tracks.
