"Talking To The Dead"
Pulled from the festering womb
of Lodi, New Jersey, Rosemarys Babies came screaming into
the world in 1981. The brainchild of Eerie Von and Post Mortem,
Rosemarys Babies were everything the Lodi Music Scene came
to represent: loud, fast, angry and aggressive. Rosemarys
Babies were together for 3 years from the years of 1981 thru 1983.
During that time, they spent unending hours writing and recording
song after song after song. Rosemarys Babies split for good
in 83 when Eerie got the call. Glenn from The Misfits needed
a bass player for his new project, Samhain. Eerie went on to play
in Samhain and Danzig as well as a prolific solo career. In 2003,
Eerie and Post had a conversation and decided to dust off the
old Rosemarys Babies reel-to-reel tapes, spending months
re-mastering all of the old sessions. From these tapes, 25 songs
were selected to be unleashed upon the world.

Babies, Im Afraid) with his buddy and bandmate Eerie Von
(Danzig, Samhain) in order to release the first record by their
band Rosemarys Babies, a blood red 7-inch, 10 song EP named
In 2003, Bob asked Eerie if it was time to put out the music of
Rosemarys Babies on CD. Deciding that it was indeed a good
time, they took the original master tapes of all the recording
sessions Rosemarys Babies did in the early 80s and had them
re-mastered. These sessions resulted in the resurrection of the
Ghastly label and its first release in over 20 years, Talking
To The Dead.
