FX’s award winning series American Horror Story is part way through its radically different 2nd season and has just been renewed for a third. The show, which is produced in an unusual ‘anthology style’, employs the same principal cast members but puts them in entirely different characters/plots/eras season by season.
The current run takes place in an early 1960′s sanitorium, and is true to it’s mid-century aesthetic in every way, even down to the music.
Last night’s episode, “The Name Game” (ep 210) featured yet another Fervor Records cut from the Vintage Masters collection. This marks the 3rd time this season that the producers have chosen from the Fervor Vintage line to add that extra bit of authenticity to the frighteningly real period series.
Deep In Love, a 1960 recording by Jack’s Four, is woven in the latest edition of the shocking horror series. It also appears on the Fervor Records release Cult Hits of the 1960′s, Vol. 1.
Tune in to FX on Wednesdays at 10pm to catch American Horror Story, from the makers of Glee and Nip/Tuck.

The FX network hit a home run with American Horror Story, which is part way through its second season and continuing to garner critical acclaim. Starring Jessica Lange as a 1960′s asylum nun, the show aims to terrify viewers and is doing a good job so far.
Like many recent television hits (Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire), the production is set in a different era and goes to great lengths to avoid anachronism, thus the soundtrack is rich with vintage gems, including but not limited to a few delectable doo-wop cuts from the Fervor archives.
Joe Montgomery’s 1957 Liberty Bell recording The Bowling Song made it’s way into episode 207, along with The Tads’ Your Reason (1956) which was originally released on Dot Records.
Tune into tomorrow night at 10pm to catch the newest edition of American Horror Story, “Dark Cousin” (ep 207), featuring the two mid-century Fervor tracks and be prepared to be scared.
Critically acclaimed horror-drama series, American Horror Story, has returned for its second season and features an unreleased vintage cut from the Fervor archives in episode one.
With a non-traditional ‘anthology series’ format, each season is a self-contained miniseries with its own storyline, and the new season takes place in an insane asylum in the year 1964.
Historically accurate, a prominently featured song in the opening episode was a 1960 cut by Fervor’s own Frank Fafara, a teen idol from Phoenix, AZ. The tune, Lovemaker, Lovebreaker is not currently available but is due to be commercially released in 2013 on a Fervor Vintage collection.
Airing Wednesday October 17th, AHS S2 E1 also featured There Goes My Baby by The Drifters, as well as the classic Singing Nun song, Dominique.
