Monster Squad - Wolf Man - Mondo

Kick Him In The Nards…When Mondo Releases The Monster Squad Soundtrack!

Okay. It’s not like Mondo doesn’t get a bit of play here on the site, heck, we literally shared the awesome LP’s the company was releasing for Aliens and Prometheus as part of the Alien Day celebration just two days ago. But now they’ve announced they are releasing the soundtrack for 1987’s The Monster Squad in the Fall…though all of us fans of that classic film don’t have to wait that long to “Rock Until You Drop” as Mondo is releasing 7 inch singles starting this weekend!

Mondo is upping the ante however for us Monster Squad fanatics. They are releasing four different versions of the single, although each of these releases contain “Rock Until You Drop” by Michael Sembello as well as “The Monster Squad Rap” by The Monster Squad. All four of these releases however feature different cover artwork by the likes of Gary Pullin, Phantom City Creative, Randy Ortiz, and an artist we’ve shined the spotlight on a couple of times here a the Retroist, Jason Edmiston.

The Wolfman single will be the first released at the Texas Frightmare Weekend…well…this weekend!

This absolutely gorgeous Gillman single has a bit of a catch.

“Bogus”

Although I guess the sting of the Gillman being a UK exclusive is lessened quite a bit since those of us in the States are getting Jason Edmiston’s stunning Frankenstein Monster artwork.
