Hey everyone! This week we have a brand new Death Waltz release titled THE BEAST IN SPACE (limited to 500 copies worldwide) along with a repressing of our FIGHT CLUB 2XLP for anyone who missed out last year. Also back in stock is the score to TWIN PEAKS, and we're now shipping MASTER OF NONE and SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV.
As usual, new releases and re-stocks go live on Wednesdays at NOON (CT).
The Beast in Space - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Marcello Giombini. Artwork by Graham Humphreys. Pressed on 180 Gram Green, Red & Purple Starburst vinyl. Limited to 500 copies. $30
Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to present the pulsating Italian synth score to director Alfonso Brescia’s 1980 sci-fi adult action film, THE BEAST IN SPACE (La Bestia nello Spazio).
Borrowing heavily from Walerian Borowczyk’s THE BEAST (La Bête), most notably its sexy b-movie seductress Sirpa Lane, along with elements of STAR TREK, CALIGULA, and even STAR WARS (light saber battle, anyone?), this treasure trove of trash cinema is truly a sight to behold. Throw in a plethora of hardcore stock footage inserts, including a loving pair of amorous horses (be sure to experience the XXX-rated version), this heavily scotch-taped piece of sleazy celluloid also features one of the genres finest electronic soundtracks. Veteran Italian composer Marcello Giombini, credited in the film as Pluto Kennedy (best sci-fi pseudonym ever?), delivers a brilliant synth and effects-heavy score that was not only fitting of the outlandish images on the screen, but also clearly influenced by Wendy Carlos' A CLOCKWORK ORANGE synth work. Who better than Giombini to deliver the appropriate soundtrack to an intergalactic struggle which somehow ends up with a giant well-endowed space faun chasing Sirpa Lane around an extraterrestrial landscape. This score will surely enhance your auditory senses during your next space sexcapade…but be forewarned, dear friends – you never know who (or rather, what) might pop up.
Strictly ltd to 500 copies pressed on 180g Green, Red & Purple starburst vinyl. Housed inside a 425 gsm gatefold jacket. Inner gatefold definitely NSFW!
BACK IN STOCK
Fight Club - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by The Dust Brothers. Sleeve Design and Packaging by Alan Hynes. Pressed on 2X 180 Gram Pink Soap Vinyl. $35
The Dust Brothers only film score to date, FIGHT CLUB is arguably one of the most enjoyable soundtrack albums to come out of the '90s, and part of that has to do with the fact that it is one of the best sequenced scores of all time. Weaving all of the films cues from the film into 16 songs, the album winds up feeling like the best instrumental Trip-Hop album you've never heard.
Buy it, or you will be incomplete. But be warned, this album will not stay beautiful, clean or perfect. It will not stay Mint, or even VG+. It will become Fair at best. Just like you.
Twin Peaks - Original Score LP. Music by Angelo Badalamenti. Artwork by Sam Smith, full package design by Jay Shaw. Pressed on 180 Gram 'Damn Fine Coffee' colored vinyl. $23
One of the greatest scores ever recorded is finally back in print for the first time in 25 years! We went back to the Warner archives, where engineer Tal Miller cut us brand new vinyl masters. We then worked with Dave Cheppa at Plush Vinyl to cut us new lacquers. Finally we asked Rainbo to press the record on 180g vinyl for the best possible sound quality.
The record comes housed inside a 425gsm gatefold sleeve featuring lyrics and liner notes by composer Angelo Badalamenti; the cover image by Sam Smith comes approved by David Lynch himself! The gatefold sleeve is then housed within a bespoke die cut outer jacket designed by Jay Shaw featuring super subtle white spot varnish text. The whole affair is finished with a top loading obi strip & pressed on ‘Damn Fine Coffee' colored vinyl.
“I'm glad that after 25 years, Death Waltz Recording Company has re-released the original soundtrack for TWIN PEAKS for a new audience to enjoy. This is my defining work as a composer and I’m happy it will get a fresh listen.” - Angelo Badalamenti, 2016
