Christian Dannie Storgaard A quick note: These are the same recordings as the ones appearing on Anthology. Both releases are labelled as re-recordings, but unfortunately, the same re-recordings (which really should be mentioned on Anthology). If you're hoping to get more versions by getting both the EP and the album, I'm afraid you're only going to get a different mastering. Favorite track: Escape from New York.

SokK I guess I watched so many John Carpenter's movies that his music has become the soundtrack of my life.
Well, lucky me. Favorite track: Escape from New York.

    Much of the power of the best films by the cult director John Carpenter can be attributed to their use of music — music that, more often than not, was composed and performed by Carpenter himself. What began as a necessity for the low-budget productions by Carpenter became a major part of his aesthetic, and established him as a pioneering figure in genre-film score work as well as electronic music in general. Now, flanked by his son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies, and with two albums (Lost Themes and Lost Themes II) of non-soundtrack material under his belt, Carpenter has decided to revisit some of his most beloved themes.

    This 12" release includes the themes to Assault on Precinct 13 and The Fog, newly rerecorded by Carpenter and his Lost Themes bandmates. May it serve as a bridge between the Horror Master’s legendary, still relevant past and his remarkable present.

about

John Carpenter Los Angeles, California

John Carpenter has been responsible for much of the horror genre’s most striking soundtrack work in the fifteen movies he’s both directed and scored. The themes that drive them can be stripped to a few coldly repeating notes, take on the electrifying thunder of a rock concert, or submerge themselves into exotic, unholy miasmas. It’s work that instantly floods his fans’ musical memory. ... more
