A few weeks ago, I mentioned that the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me soundtrack was chosen by NME as the best film soundtrack ever made. This week, NME called up its composer, Angelo Badalamenti, and asked him a few questions about the amazing album he created about 20 years ago together with David Lynch. Here are my favorite bits from the interview.
Q2 has done it. He completed his highly anticipated feature film edit of the Twin Peaks television series. By focusing merely on the Laura Palmer story and leaving other subplots on the cutting room floor, he was able to reduce the 2-season runtime from 980 minutes to 300.
A Witch House and Okkvlt Guide To Twin Peaks is a witch house tribute to the world of Twin Peaks. Witch house, for the uninitiated which I bet are many, is a music genre which combines hip hop and dubstep rhythms, industrial noise and gothic rock. And then some.
I've been traveling the past week and a half (more on that later), and it's quite delightful to return home and discover not one but three freshly squeezed Twin Peaks goodies over at davidlynch.com. 2011 is clearly the year of the spoiled Twin Peaks fan! Along with 3 new songs, there are 8 new Twin Peaks backgrounds.
Based on the minimal ampersand-design we also used for our Bookhouse Boys t-shirt, this Twin Peaks Sheriff's Department t-shirt lists the first names of the great bunch at the local law enforcement team; Deputy Hawk, Sheriff Harry S. Truman, Deputy Andy Brennan and the strong woman behind these good men, Lucy Moran.
Because there was no still photographer on the set during the filming of the last Twin Peaks episode, Richard Beymer (aka Ben Horne) was given permission by David Lynch to take some pictures on the set.
