We've got some blues rock legends. It's Herman Brood & His Wild Romance with their second album Shpritsz, which features the massive hits “Saturday Night” and “R & Roll Junkie”. Available now as limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on yellow vinyl, with an insert. Also available now, on black vinyl: the collaborative live album Last Time Around - Live At Legends by Buddy Guy and Junior Wells.
Want something faster and louder? Look no further than The Bright Lights Of America by American punk rockers Anti-Flag. This fiery and angry album is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on solid red vinyl. The lp's are housed in a gatefold sleeve with a deluxe leather laminate finish, which also contains a double-sided poster with lyrics and liner notes.
At The Movies fans, today might just be your day. We have four titles to add to this catalogue.
We're getting in the Eurovision mood early by releasing the soundtrack to the 2020 Netflix film Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga on “Snow & Ice” coloured vinyl. It is released as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies, and contains an insert, a printed innersleeve and a “Play Jaja Ding Dong” fridge magnet.
Want something scarier? These two horror soundtracks should do. We're releasing the haunting score to the critically acclaimed 2014 film It Follows as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on translucent red vinyl. It's housed in a deluxe heavyweight jacket and the run-out groove contains some secret inscriptions. We also recommend Daughters of Darkness. The much sought after soundtrack to this 1971 Belgian film is available on vinyl for the first time. It's a limited edition of 666 numbered copies on blue vinyl, with an extra 7” single on red vinyl.
Last but certainly not least: The Place Beyond the Pines. The sweeping and brooding score to this acclaimed crime drama film was created by none other than Mike Patton, lead singer of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle, and contains songs by Bon Iver, Ennio Morricone and The Cryin' Shames. Available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on translucent green vinyl, and this record too contains secret inscriptions.
The Bright Lights of America is the seventh album released by American punk rock band Anti-Flag. Released in 2008, the album marked a change in the band's sound: although still very much punk, the album is their first to feature a string section and child choirs. Two singles were released from the album: both the title track and “The Modern Rome Burning”.
It Follows features a stunning, electronic-driven score, heavy with pulsating synths and dread in equal measure. It was composed by the renowned musician Disasterpeace. This electro, 80s influenced score is a character in itself in the movie, and will haunt the listener long after the film has stopped rolling.
Daughters of Darkness is a 1971 English-language Belgian horror film. Directed by Harry Kümel this cult erotic vampire film stars Delphine Seyrig, Danielle Ouimet, John Karlen, and Andrea Rau. Its score was created by multiple award winning composer François de Roubaix. It has long been a much sought after title, with De Roubaix' son Benjamin commenting that the “composer achieves a perfect balance and the result is a bleak and eerie soundtrack that stands on a par with the music of Ennio Morricone in A Lizard in a Woman's Skin or - in a different style - that of Isaac Hayes for Shaft”. Parts of score would eventually be sampled by several hip-hop artists, including American rapper Lil Wayne on his song “President Carter”
Shpritsz is the second studio album by the Dutch rock and roll group Herman Brood & His Wild Romance. The Dutch true rock 'n' roll star recorded the album during the most successful period of his career.
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is a 2020 American musical comedy film directed by David Dobkin and written by Will Ferrell and Andrew Steele. The film follows Icelandic singers Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdóttir (Ferrell and Rachel McAdams) as they are given the chance to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Place Beyond the Pines is Derek Cianfrance 2012 crime drama film. The critically acclaimed film reunites Cianfance and Ryan Gosling, whom had previously collaborated on 2010's Blue Valentine. It also stars Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta. Mike Patton, American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal/experimental rock bands Faith No More and Mr. Bungle, delivers a sweeping and brooding score. Like a red thread, his music guides the audience through this multi-generational story often linking characters and locations.
Chicago blues exponent George “Buddy” Guy released multiple albums with renowned vocalist Junior Wells. One of those albums is this live acoustic album, Last Time Around: Live at Legends. The sessions were recorded in 1993 at Buddy's world-famous Chicago blues mecca Legends.
