Strange Spirits is a 1979 album by the Skatt Brothers.

Casablanca supported this release with a single release in the US of "Dancing' For The Man" backed with "Walk The Night." A Village People-inspired video was also filmed for "Life At The Outpost," released as a single in other markets, notably in Australia where it was backed with "Midnight Companion." The video for "Life At The Outpost" was generated by their distributing record company in Australia (Polygram/Mercury), and is regarded as a misrepresentation of the band. No members of the Skatt Bros. appeared in the video. The KISS connections continue on this album, apart from the obvious Sean Delaney one: A KISS pinball machine features on the album's rear cover photograph, suitably obscured. "Walk The Night" was included on "The Casablanca Records Story" 4-CD box set in 1994.
