David Lynch’s Son Riley Performs “Snake Eyes” With Trouble At The Bang Bang Bar

Trouble - Snake Eyes (Twin Peaks Bang Bang Bar Song)

Trouble is Dean Hurley, Riley Lynch, and Alex Zhang Hungtai, and the band just made its television —yes, even world debut on the new Twin Peaks.

Towards the end of the 5th installment of the new series, David Lynch’s son (guitar), his longtime music supervisor (drums) and Dirty Beaches’ Alex Zhang Hungtai (tenor saxophone) can be seen performing the noir R&B “Snake Eyes” at the Bang Bang Bar during an intense scene introducing the character of Richard Horne, a sort of reincarnation of Blue Velvet’s Frank Booth.

The instrumental song was immediately added to the Nighttime at the Roadhouse playlist, it will be part of the official Twin Peaks music album due in September 2017, and it’s also available for pre-order on limited edition colored vinyl via Sacred Bones Records. Also check out “Mother’s Gone,” an experimental jazz noir piece on the flip side, which has hints of Laura Palmer’s Theme and Lost Highway’s Red Bats With Teeth, both by Angelo Badalamenti.

According to the record label, there may never be any more music from Trouble, “but this 45 serves as physical evidence of the group’s continued existence in a parallel cinematic universe, grinding out late night Roadhouse gigs in the fictitious town of Twin Peaks, Washington.”

  1. With the last statement of the above article making it seemingly appear to be a one off, don’t think they’ll have any issues arguing with anyone else over the name, as this is less of a ‘band’ and more of a ‘project’.

    • In the original script Sheriff Truman says, “Jake Morrissey owns the Bookhouse and the Roadhouse. The Bang Bang Bar. Everybody calls it the Roadhouse.” 

      (There’s an outtake from the pilot episode where he says it.)

  2. I really, really love how they updated the “Roadhouse” for the new series… and GREAT BANDS. Certainly it was named the “Bang Bang Bar” 25 yrs ago. But no doubt the locals just called it what everyone called it during previous generations of ownership.

  3. It’s called the Roadhouse. Look in the guide to TP published by Lynch and Frost, it has never been referred to on the show as the Bang Bang Bar not even once, so why would you call it a name never used in the scripts or by the characters? It seems pointless to argue this. It’s the Roadhouse.
