MondoCon 2015 is quickly approaching, and this week we’ll be highlighting some of the labels joining us for the weekend. For the uninitiated, MondoCon is our annual celebration of everything that we love: Posters, Music, Toys & Collectibles, and most importantly - the artists and labels who create these wonderful works. It's happening the weekend of October 2nd - 4th in Austin, TX beginning with Fabio Frizzi's first ever US performance of FRIZZI 2 FULCI, a live show featuring work from the films of Lucio Fulci. You can find more information about the performance here.
Then, starting on Saturday October 3rd, we open the convention doors and welcome our friends and fans to explore and interact with dozens of artists and labels from around the world. But as this is our music mailer, we'd like to focus on the musical components of MondoCon.
We’ll be premiering our vinyl soundtrack releases for both Black Swan by Clint Mansell and Army Of Darkness by Joe LoDuca during the weekend. Black Swan comes as a 2XLP set with artwork by Sam Wolfe Connolly and is pressed on White & Blue vinyl. Army Of Darkness features artwork by Richey Beckett and is pressed on ‘Black Vortex Swirl’ vinyl.
On top of that we'll have previously unreleased variant versions of two of our 2015 releases AND a fully stocked store with all available titles that are still in print, test pressings, and a few last remaining copies of some previously sold out / rare titles.
DWRC will be releasing The Black Belly Of The Tarantula by Ennio Morricone, an an edition of just 500 multicolor splatter LPs housed inside a gatefold jacket. Additionally, Death Waltz will have the remaining event copies of both Fabio Frizzi LPs (The Beyond & Frizzi 2 Fulci Live) as well as an exclusive Umberto 7’ to accompany his live re-score of Pieces, taking place on Sunday night. You can find out more about that performance / screening here. There are still a few tickets left!
