Here’s this month’s Radio Lost and Found.
Pretty crazy. There were so many records and CDs sprawled over the air room that it’s a miracle I was able to jot them down. Lots of fun visitors, too.
I played a generous chunk of sound from Panos Cosmotos‘ amazing movie Beyond the Black Rainbow, which I highly recommend. I recommend you watch it high(ly). Pretty strange movie that’s a conscious homage to 70s/80s cult cinema – the most apparent influences being Cronenberg, Kubrick, Argento, Tartovsky. Aided and abetted by analog synth fiend Jeremy Schmidt, of Black Mountain and Sinoia Caves, who provides the brooding score that at times is evocative of Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, etc.
The film itself has a bare-bones plot – but what a trip. Critics have been split on this one. It makes one wonder how Eraserhead, anything by Jodowrowski or early David Cronenberg would be received today. I think – pretentious or not – it sort of belongs on the same shelf as any of those (real) cult classics.
Anywho… Here’s the show again.
