Tuxedomoon And Cult With No Name Blue Velvet Revisited (Original Soundtrack) on LP
Made To Measure Composer Series Release Vol. 42!
Crammed Discs are happy to present a new volume in their revived Made To Measure composers' series: the original soundtrack written and recorded in 2015 by Tuxedomoon and Cult With No Name for the Blue Velvet Revisited documentary, based on footage shot by Peter Braatz in 1985 on the set of Blue Velvet, at the invitation of David Lynch.
In 1985, a young German filmmaker Peter Braatz was invited by David Lynch to Wilmington, NC to document the making of his new film. Over the following three months Braatz was given unrestricted access to set, cast, crew and director, collating hours of behind-the-scenes footage, in-depth interviews and over a thousand photographs. Featuring exclusive, never before seen footage, the new feature-length Blue Velvet Revisited finally offers the most intimate and revealing insight into one of the greatest films of the 1980s, and one of the world's greatest directors ever.
The soundtrack for this new take on an old masterpiece is equally as significant. Uniting the talents of acclaimed UK electronic balladeers Cult With No Name with legendary post-punk chamber music pioneers Tuxedomoon, the music for Blue Velvet Revisited is every bit as noirishly evocative as the billing would suggest. Fusing elements of contemporary classical ("Lumberton") to jazz ("So Fucking Suave") to ambient electronica ("Do It For Van Gogh") to krautrock ("Jeffrey Nothing"), but never fully surrendering to any, Tuxedomoon and Cult With No Name have produced a suite that is as unique as it is representative of both artists. In addition, the album sees a contribution from electronic music Godfather John Foxx, the eerie ambience of "Lincoln Street" providing a perfect axis around which Tuxedomoon and Cult With No Name can weave their magic.
With glorious artwork featuring previously unseen photographs of David Lynch, Dennis Hopper, Isabella Rossellini, Kyle Maclachlan and Laura Dern, Blue Velvet Revisited is a truly special release.
