Discovery - The Duke Street Workshop - "The genius bastard offspring of John Carpenter and Palace Pictures"
The synth heartbeat and sense of nostalgia for something frightening and half-remembered pervades this collection. Feeling like the genius bastard offspring of John Carpenter and Palace Pictures this should tickle many a fancy. I was transported to a memory of sitting in darkened lounges watching crackly videos with a racing heart. What this music does is capture what you half-remember rather than what the actual films were really like. So you get the excitement of the memory without the disappointment of reality. Splendid!
Listen and listen again.
(Mind you, that said, these films ARE ace!)
