Death Waltz ist ein neues Plattenlabel von Spencer Hickman (Rough Trade) und die legen Soundtracks neu auf, und zwar als Vinyl-Releases und limitierten Releases in colored Vinyl mit exklusiven Artworks bekannter Designer. Wie Mondo Tees für Soundtracks, quasi. Snake Plissken in bunt ist natürlich schon lange ausverkauft, demnächst kommt aber der Soundtrack von Carpenters Prince of Darkness oder auch Ti Wests House of the Devil mit Artwork von Tom „The Dude Designs“ Hodge. Großartiges Konzept, stilsichere Auswahl. Toll!
Exclusively re-mastered for this vinyl release including 6 tracks that never made it into the original film. John Carpenter not only directed Escape From New York but also composed and recorded all of its music too. This score sounds as fresh today as it did when it was first released. Laden with brooding electronic pulses, flashes of Krautrock and healthy dose of nu disco ensures that this soundtrack sounds as happy on the dance floor as it is in your headphones.
Exclusive cover art by Jay Shaw (aka Iron Jaiden) one of the most in demand poster artists working today, his recent work has been selling out in minutes creating a huge demand on the aftermarket. Jay is heavily influenced by the abstract posters of the polish film industry and is not afraid to experiment with his work.
