The soundtrack to Nicolas Roeg’s surreal David Bowie-starring film The Man Who Fell To Earth is coming to vinyl for the very first time. The release coincides with the film’s 40th anniversary.

The film’s score, composed by Stomu Yamash’ta and John Phillips, has long been sought-after but has previously been unavailable on any format. “Little is known, and much has been asked, as to why the soundtrack was never originally released,” reads the press notes.

Apparently the “lost tapes” were recently unearthed, enabling the original recordings to be resorted and remastered. The double LP gatefold is expected on 18 November. Find the tracklist below and pre-order your copy here.

Pizza Hut’s latest gimmick is offering you the novel chance to DJ with an empty pizza box. The box features a DJ setup printed in conductive ink with two decks, pitch control, volume control and crossfader.

Created by printed electronics specialist Novalia, the battery-powered box links up with your device via Bluetooth and connects to any MIDI compatible DJ software like Serato or Traktor. It lets you scratch and rewind tracks. Being non-vinyl, it’s even got a sync button.

Watch Rinse FM’s DJ Vectra demonstrate the box – which actually seems to work quite well – in the video below. If you want one, you’ll need to eat fast because there’s just five out there. Just watch out for that pizza grease…

In 1968, three sisters from Fremont, New Hampshire strapped on their instruments and declared themselves The Shaggs. At that moment begun a peculiar tale that would last far beyond the group’s five-year run. Dot, Betty and Helen (and occasionally Rachel, the fourth sister) played in the group on the insistence of their father, Austin Wiggin Jr., who was convinced they were going to be big. Years earlier, Austin’s mother gave him a palm reading, predicting that her son would marry a strawberry blonde woman, that he would have two sons after his mother died, and that his daughters would form a popular music outfit. The first two became reality, so Austin was certain the third would follow suit.

With pure confidence and his mother’s bold prediction, Austin decided that his daughters would forgo attending the local high school in favor of home schooling interspersed with a strict regiment of instrumental and vocal practice, along with jumping jacks and sit-ups. Soon after The Shaggs would enter Fleetwood Recording studios in Revere, Massachusetts to record their sole album, Philosophy Of The World, a collection of garage rock tunes that balanced charm and discordance in equal measure. Austin would spend most of his savings not only on the session but also on the manufacturing costs to press up 1,000 copies of the album (900 of which mysteriously vanished upon completion).

Throughout the album’s simple truths are revealed through the pen of sister Dot, the songwriter of the band. The rich people want what the poor people got, just as the poor people want what the rich people got. Your parents love you. There is happiness in nearness and sadness in the farness.

The album failed to fulfill Austin’s expectations of rock stardom, though the group remained together until their father’s death, performing frequently at the Fremont town hall and a local nursing home, no further albums were released. That might have been the end of it, until rock band NRBQ discovered a copy at a Massachusetts radio station and re-released it in 1980. Rolling Stone’s reviewer at the time described it as “the most stunningly awful wonderful record I’ve heard in ages”.

Nearly 50 years later, the album ranks among the most polarizing LPs of all time. Some said it was the worst thing ever made. Others felt it was one of the great long players of the 20th century. Frank Zappa famously dubbed the band “better than The Beatles”, while Kurt Cobain placed the album at #5 on his list of Top 50 favorite albums. Original copies of the album fetch for $10,000.

Decades later and one could argue that maybe Austin was right all along. We’re all here, still enthralled by the purity of The Shaggs.

soundtrack-ost-ghostbusters-2016-ltd-slime-green-v

  • The Vinyl debut of the soundtrack of “Ghostbusters 2016” By Theodore Shapiro
  • Single Lp on 180 gram SLIME GREEN COLORED vinyl
  • Limited Edition of only 500 copies
  • Gatefold sleeve + 6 Page insert
  • Release Date : 19/09/16

Who you gonna call?

Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world!

The music is composed by Hollywood’s go-to composer for edgy comedic fare Theodore Shapiro. He has consistently delivered memorable music for some of the funniest movies of the past five years. Shapiro’s careful touch has made him a sought-after collaborator for some of Hollywood’s leading comedy directors: David Frankel (Prada, Marley), Stiller (Tropic Thunder), John Hamburg (I Love You, Man, Along Came Polly), Mike Judge (Idiocracy) and, most recently, Harold Ramis (Year One). Shapiro, 37, is a rarity in modern film music: a classically trained composer (bachelor’s degree from Brown, master’s from Juilliard) who, despite commissions for classical works (including a well-received piano concerto in 1999), decided he’d rather be working in film.
