“The Howling” is a song taken from the film and soundtrack Howling II: … Your Sister Is a Werewolf (1985). The film features a sequence in which little-known new wave band Babel play their song “The Howling”. Babel were: Stephen W. Parsons (lead singer); Chris Pye (guitar); Simon Etchell (keyboard); Steve Young (drums). Three of these musicians later played in another band, State Project. Etchell composed the theme for UK TV show Catchphrase as well as many other TV signature tunes and later the soundtrack for the movie Vanished (2009).

The Howling ‘Making Flesh Creep Mix’ is exactly the same recording as the ‘Club Mix’ featured in the soundtrack lp, but with an additional 31 seconds intro of sampled growls, grumbles and flute effects.
