It's Jay Reatard's Blood Visions... best punk rock CD I've heard in like 20 years.

The Coffin Things is a cool and disturbing story about a small town mortician that gets his twisted revenge on the locals who he believes are trying to ruin his life... author Michael Avallone was probably more famous for writting the book versions of hit movies like Friday the 13th and Beneath the Planet of the Apes but here he does a tremendously efficient job of building suspense and creates an interesting world full of multi-dimensional characters. I just found this book the other day for 50 cents at a used book store and read the whole thing in practically one sitting. It's loads of fun and has some horrific moments!
