  • BTW, the image of Veronique wearing nothing but the striped gloves was shot by renowned erotic & fetish photographer Justice Howard. http://JusticeHoward.com. (Haul-E-Weird)
  • After Jann's successes in Poland and Australia, he was admitted into the US as "alien of extraordinary ability." Since completing his collaboration with Veronique, he is working on orchestrations for a new rock opera, with the legendary Jon Anderson, of the mega- progrock band Yes. Find out more about him here: http://Composing.com (Haul-E-Weird)
  • About Jann: He's is an accomplished composer, sound engineer & sound effects specialist, and film editor, who was nominated for an ARIA Award (the Australian equivilent of the Grammy's) for the soundtrack of the film "Red Express." In Poland, he was the founder, of the band Res Publica, (which was later renamed Republika, and under Grzegorz Ciechowski went on to much acclaim in that country). (Haul-E-Weird)
  • After completing the launch of the single version of "Vampire Surprise", she will be releasing a new, full-length recording, "Veronique's Red Velvet LIVE!" which features 14 tracks, including, you guessed it- a live version of) "Vampire Surprise", as well as a "secret" bonus track. (Haul-E-Weird)
  • About Veronique: Known as The "Weird Val" of Cabaret, for her hilarious parodies and side-splitting covers. (Imagine if Jim Morrison and Elvira had a love child with a French accent). Deemed "too extreme for Simon" she was gonged off the first season of "America's Got Talent", after only 20 seconds, which only proves her gifts are wasted on the masses. She is the recipient of The Unanimous Choice Award for Best Indie Cabaret Artist by the Los Angeles Music Awards.

  • Veronique and Jann couldn't agree on a title and the song was initially "Spooky Garlic Dracula Polka", but neither of them really liked it. When a replacement was not easily forthcoming, one evening, Veronique half-joking/half-serious, turned to the portrait of Frank Zappa that hangs in Jann's studio and beseeched the venerable dead composer to give them guidance for a new song title. Within seconds, a light bulb went off above her head and the words "Vampire Surprise" issued from her lips for the first time... (Haul-E-Weird)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Vampire Surprise

    Lyrics by Veronique Chevalier & Music by Jann Castor © 2007

    VERSE:
    Back in the Old Country
    Where I learned to cook
    Recipes they taught me
    Didn't come from any book
    Dishes so tasty
    Ranged from "A" to "Z" but
    The greatest ingredient
    Started with a "G"
    ----
    CHORUS:
    Garlic with a G
    Fried or fricasseed
    Keep it next to me
    Potent Potpourri
    Seasoning and spice
    With a taste so nice
    Has healthy bite–BUT…..!
    The greatest thing of all IS….!
    That it extends your life!
    -----
    VERSE:
    Cooking one moonlit night
    I heard a creepy creepy sound
    Tried to find a wooden stake
    But a T-bone was all I found
    Didn't have a silver bullet
    'Cause I don't pack a gun
    Had to grab some garlic
    So I'd live to see the sun
    ----
    CHORUS:
    Garlic with a G
    Fried or fricasseed
    Keep it next to me
    Potent Potpourri
    Seasoning and spice
    With a taste so nice
    Has healthy bite–BUT…..!
    The greatest thing of all IS….!
    That it extends your life!
    -----
    BRIDGE:
    Let the werewolves howl and bay
    But if you display a garlic lei
    You will make it through the night
    Give Nosferatu a fright
    ----
    INTERLUDE: La la……etc
    ----
    VERSE:
    Love to try new recipes
    And serve them to my guests
    They like my dinner parties for
    They know my food's the best
    Doesn't take much money
    To make all this stuff
    But the roast tastes funny cause
    Vampire meat is tough
    ----
    CHORUS:
    Garlic with a G
    Fried or fricasseed
    Keep it next to me
    Potent Potpourri
    Seasoning and spice
    With a taste so nice
    Has healthy bite–BUT…..!
    The greatest thing of all IS….!
    That it extends your life!
    -----
    OUTRO:
    You can keep your fancy flavors
    I found the one for me
    Yes, the garlic is our savior
    And Dracula is history
    ----
    INTERLUDE: La la……etc
    ----
    SPOKEN:
    Hey Count, have you a cold or are you just "coffin"?
    Which gang are you in- Bloods or Crypts? Ha Ha!
    Who's your orthodontist? Jack the Ripper?
    Hey, Drac, at a séance, do you go into a Trance-sylvania?
    Fang you for the memories, Old Toothy!
    That's Garlic with a "G"! Heh! Heh! Heh! Heh! Heh!
