|Tim Krog The Boogeyman (Original 1980s Motion Picture Soundtrack) Limited Coloured Vinyl LP + CD Album
One Way Static Records is proud to be bring you their latest release, one where we had the chance to work with German director Ulli Lommel and composer Tim Krog.
Ulli Lommel is a German writer, actor and director. Since the sixties he has been taking up roles in films by Russ Meyer and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. This resulted in him both getting several nominations and winning awards.
Lommel moved to the US in 1977 to work with Andy Warhol and to direct movies from the likes of ‘Cocaine Cowboys’, ‘Blank Generation’, ‘Brainwaves’ etc Since the mid-1980s, he has directed several films, from drama to science fiction, but mostly horror. In recent years he has become notorious for a long line of direct-to-video movies based on the lives of serial killers, ‘Son of Sam’ and ‘Zodiac Killer’ being the most well known. In 1980 Lommel directed ‘THE BOOGEYMAN’ starring John Carradine, which became a ‘slasher genre’ hit and made the UK's banned ‘Video Nasties’ list. Two sequels were also produced in 1981 and 1983.
To underscore his film, Lommel needed a soundtrack that fitted the times like the synth based John Carpenter styled soundscapes used in Halloween. By the late seventies, electronic music had achieved new heights of popularity. Technological innovations such as the Mini-Moog became a weapon of choice for new composers, churning out chilling electronic music that showed the industry its full creative potential.
Tim Krog: THE BOOGEYMAN (Original 1980 Motion Picture Soundtrack)
For this he turned to Tim Krog and his team ‘Synthe-Sound-Trax’ composed out of Jan Barlett and Ed Christiano. This trio produced a soundtrack far more progressive and unique than one might expect. Moving easily between traditional melodies and more experimental textures, The Boogeyman’s score is a superb example of an economical but highly effective scoring style that would be prevalent throughout the ensuing decade.
As you listen to these soundscapes, remember one thing: "The Boogey man" will get you if you don't watch out". Today we bring to you the original 1980 motion picture soundtrack from The Boogeyman. Available on limited color vinyl & cassette, packaged in deluxe old school tip-on gatefold covers with printed insert containing extensive & exclusive liner notes by Charlie Brigden, Justin Kerswell and Ulli Lommel.
