Gothic Archies Theme Songs for Lemony Snicket Audio Books
Using his band-pen name The Gothic Archies, Stephin Merritt has been recording original theme songs for children's audio books produced by Harper Audio. He has composed nine songs so far for the immensely successful childrens series by Lemony Snicket, "A Series of Unfortunate Events". Ultimately there will be theme songs for all thirteen books in the series. Merritt has released incidental music for the audio book of Neil Gaiman's Coraline, also through Harper Audio. The theme songs will all come out on one Gothic Archies audio CD when the "Series of Unfortunate Events" is complete.
