Snake King

snake

Synopsis – Snake King

Synopsis – Romantic Ballad

One for those nights when the only people in the house are headbangers in cross necklaces and denim wests, mixing up “dramatic” and “utterly fucking hideous”. Rough but still danceable. The second track Romantic Ballad is a quite accomplished pulse groove. The record is Estonian.

Roma


Luppi&Mouse – The Gambling Priest
Luppi&Mouse – Theme From Rome
Two cinematic cuts from Rome, the grandiose follow up to Daniele Luppi’s Italian Story cd. He’s now collaborating with Danger Mouse and again using many studio musicians, singers, and authentic recording equipment from the golden era of Italian cinema to present a hommage to maestros like Ennio Morricone, Theo Usuelli and Armando Trovaioli. Even Edda Dell’Orso is there, with new recruits like Norah Jones. Essential.

Peru – Africa (1983)

(Listen to the full track)

Here’s a classic synth tune composed by the dutch band Peru for the “Continents” LP in 1983 on CNR Records and Red Bullet.

I’m dreaming with this piece! A long trip (11 min.) into the deep african jungle with an exotica revival touch.

Captain Future

181293467_b8a5022738_o.jpg Every thirty or twentysomething will easily remember this old anime, named differently according to the country that broadcast the show (e.g. Captain Future, Capitan Futuro or Capitaine Flam).

It is worth noting that every European country had its own version of the OST. While, in France for example, Jean-Jacques Debout (see previous post) recorded it, Christian Bruhn released his own version for the German market, in 1980.

Christian Bruhn – Gefahr
Christian Bruhn – Vor dem Start
Christian Bruhn – Durch den Weltraum nach Hause

This OST spawned countless remixes and cover versions. Some are o.k., others are really bad.

The original:
Christian Bruhn – Feinde greifen an
The remake:
Phil Fuldner – The Final (Chronovisor Mix) (1998)

The original:
Christian Bruhn – Space – Wind
The remake:
Wildchild – All Together (1996) – I should still have my Mokum T-shirt somewhere, cleanly packed…

La Féline

Giorgio Moroder – To The Bridge (1982)

It’s an extract from “Cat People” the score of the erotic and fantastic movie directed by Paul Schrader, remake of a Jacques Tourneur‘s classic from 1942.

This interesting soundtrack with various atmospheres goes from sweet themes, slow and melodic with a piano for example, to dark and intense tunes with noises.

Jean Stephan Regottaz is the real name of this fan of Space Art who released his first album, Création,  in 1982. I’m no fan of his whole work (especially the later albums) but the tracks in preview have the undeniable quality of all radiating sincerity and a strong and positive DIY attitude.
