Music Weekly: HOT FUZZ Original Score LP!

Hey All - this week we’ll be releasing our webstore version of David Arnold’s amazing score to HOT FUZZ. The “Chocolate Cornetto” version of the record was event exclusive, but those who were unable to make it to the Con have access to the “Crown Ale Colored” version of the record (similar to the “Winchester Ale” version of SHAUN OF THE DEAD, our previous release in the Cornetto trilogy).

In case you missed it, we are also selling the amazing mix-tape soundtrack to Charlize Theron's kick-ass new film, ATOMIC BLONDE.

We have three distributed titles for you this week: SONIC MANIA is the newest release by our friends at Data Discs, and One Way Static continue there exclusive colored vinyl releases with a brand new POPOL VUH re-issue, For You and Me (limited to 300 copies), and a super limited reissue of THE BURNING on exclusive splatter vinyl.


HOT FUZZ, along with our distributed titles, will go on sale this Wednesday at NOON (CT)

MONDO
Hot Fuzz - Original Motion Picture Score LP. 
Music Composed by David Arnold. Artwork by Jock. Liner notes by Edgar Wright and David Arnold. Pressed on 180 Gram Crown-Ale colored vinyl (also available on 180 Gram black vinyl). $25

Edgar Wright's sophomore film turns 10 years old this year, and we are honored to continue our celebration of his iconic film trilogy with the premiere release of David Arnold's score to HOT FUZZ.

Never before released in its entirety, David Arnold’s score for HOT FUZZ plays it straight. The world of Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) and Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) is filled with stylized shoot-outs, colorful characters, and rapidfire comedic beats; the music of HOT FUZZ takes the sincere approach. It brings the heroes (and their many, many villains) into the action films that eventually crash headfirst into the peaceful idyllic village of Sandford.

The title track, ‘Theme from Hot Fuzz,’ feels like a retro futurist version of a ’60s cop show - all urgent beats and huge orchestral flourishes that make you feel like you are in the action. ‘The Hot Fuzz Suite (Hotter and Fuzzier)’ is 23 minutes of utterly spellbinding music which travels the path from beautiful Spanish guitar flourishes to Arnold’s signature orchestral techno stylings. David Arnold went back to the master tapes for us on this and pieced the entire soundtrack together; both David and Edgar were involved in the approvals.

Featuring original artwork by Jock, continuing his Cornetto Trilogy series (with companion artwork to his previous take on SHAUN OF THE DEAD), mastered for vinyl at Air Studios UK, and pressed on 180 Gram Crown Ale Colored Vinyl (also available on 180 Gram Black).

AVAILABLE NOW 

MONDO
Atomic Blonde - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Original Artwork by Ron Lesser. Pressed on 180 Gram Blue and Yellow Swirl Vinyl. Also available on Black Vinyl. Note: this item ships mid-August 2017. $35

A cool film needs a cool soundtrack, right? And none come cooler than ATOMIC BLONDE. A double LP filled to the brim with needledrops of some of the '80s best known cuts, as well as some under the radar gems, and a smattering of brand new tracks recorded especially for the movie. 

David Bowie, George Michael, The Clash, Nena, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and A Flock Of Seagulls of course need no introduction, and they all contribute absolutely killer songs here. Rubbing shoulders with these A-listers are lesser known acts such as Re-Flex, whose track ‘The Politics of Dancing' was a minor hit in the UK and is a pure '80s synth-pop banger from start to finish. After The Fire went from playing uninspired prog rock to recording the should-have-been classic ‘Der Kommissar,’ full of funky guitar licks and a chorus so hook-laden it should be illegal. ‘Voices Carry’ by American new wave band 'Til Tuesday features Aimee Mann on vocals and is an all-timer everyone needs on vinyl. 

DISTRIBUTED TITLES

DISTRIBUTED TITLE
Sonic Mania - Original Video Game Soundtrack LP. 
Released on Data Discs Records. Music by Tee Lopes. Pressed on 180g Sonic Blue Vinyl (Also available on 180g Black Vinyl). $27

Just in time for Sonic's 26th Anniversary, and to celebrate the launch of his newest adventure, SEGA and Data Discs are proud to announce the official SONIC MANIA vinyl album.

The SONIC MANIA LP features 16 new tracks by composer Tee Lopes, as well as new gatefold art featuring Sonic, Tails and Knuckles exploring the lush vistas of Green Hill Zone Act 2. The vinyl album is a must-have for any fan or Sonic music aficionado, and a gorgeous addition to any Sonic collection.

Pressed on 180g translucent “Sonic Blue” vinyl and packaged in a heavyweight gatefold sleeve with UV spot varnish, this release features new and exclusive artwork, along with a printed inner sleeve featuring an array of characters from the game. It also includes a download code of the album in both lossy and lossless formats. Also available on 180g Black vinyl.

DISTRIBUTED TITLE
Popol Vuh - For You and Me. Released on One Way Static Records. Pressed on Black and Silver swirl vinyl (300 copies only). $25

Out of print since 1991 and never released on vinyl outside of Europe, Popol Vuh's For You and Me is now available as a gorgeously packaged deluxe vinyl edition. Pressed on colored vinyl and strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide (black & clear swirl vinyl), For You And Me was the band's 17th album (!) and now - 28 years later - holds up more than ever. While decidedly new age and world music in sound, this album has style and grace, and the updated sonic quality makes it a pleasure to listen to. The light pieces combined with their timeless dramatic signature sound, the majestic piano chords, the profound lyrics and the crescendos of emotions set this album apart from the banal new age mainstream. The authentic Popul Vuh spirituality permeates on every track here; prepare for goose bumps and a divine moment. In For You and Me, they created a modern day classic, easily their best album of the '90s.

DISTRIBUTED TITLE
The Burning - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
Released on One Way Static Records. Music by Rick Wakeman. Black & Orange vinyl (limited to 200 only). $25

The iconic score for THE BURNING was composed and performed by Rick Wakeman, an English composer, keyboardist, songwriter, author and actor who needs little introduction. He is best known for being in the progressive rock band Yes, and for his solo albums released in the 1970s. Wakeman’s early credits include playing on David Bowie’s "Space Oddity" and on songs by T.Rex, Elton John, Cat Stevens, Lou Reed and Black Sabbath (among others). He also composed numerous soundtracks and additional music for films like CREEPSHOW 2 (1987), CRIMES OF PASSION (1984) and THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1990). 

Rick delivers a SCARY soundtrack to go with the film, even paranoid-sounding at times, contrasted with beautifully delicate piano work which crashes into the powerful pulsating synth driven sections that are Rick Wakeman’s trademark. Jazz components mixed with eerie ambient electronics makes this an essential release for fans of horror movie soundtracks. Now... get ready to experience the sound of fear.

New Music Release: ATOMIC BLONDE Original Soundtrack

Hey everyone - earlier this year we got to see an advance screening of (what is now known as) ATOMIC BLONDE, starring Charlize Theron and directed by one half of the JOHN WICK team. We were utterly blown away by it. It’s a super fun film with some all-timer fight scenes, and an incredible mix-tape soundtrack (featuring songs by David Bowie, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Nena, George Michael, just to name a few) that we're thrilled to present on vinyl in celebration of the film's release in theaters this weekend.
 
ATOMIC BLONDE - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available tomorrow (Friday, 7/28) at NOON (CT).

MONDO

Where do we start? 

A cool film needs a cool soundtrack, right? And none come cooler than ATOMIC BLONDE. A double LP filled to the brim with needledrops of some of the '80s best known cuts, as well as some under the radar gems, and a smattering of brand new tracks recorded especially for the movie.

David Bowie, George Michael, The Clash, Nena, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and A Flock Of Seagulls of course need no introduction, and they all contribute absolutely killer songs here. Rubbing shoulders with these A-listers are lesser known acts such as Re-Flex, whose track ‘The Politics of Dancing' was a minor hit in the UK and is a pure '80s synth-pop banger from start to finish. After The Fire went from playing uninspired prog rock to recording the should-have-been classic ‘Der Kommissar,’ full of funky guitar licks and a chorus so hook-laden it should be illegal. ‘Voices Carry’ by American new wave band 'Til Tuesday features Aimee Mann on vocals and is an all-timer everyone needs on vinyl. 

The record is rounded out by a series of covers of classic '80s tracks. Industrial noise pop band HEALTH offering a fresh take on New Order’s 'Blue Monday' which turns the cold original into a sublime slice of melodic mayhem that breaks down into into electro shoegaze before going full dance floor to finish. LEX recording artists Kaleida supply a moody ethereal version of Nena’s '99 Luftballons'. And finally composer Tyler Bates teams up with Marilyn Manson for a cover of Ministry’s ‘Stigmata,’ which sounds like Manson going back to his Spooky Kids roots, and is urgent as all hell.

Four sides of killer music wrapped in a beautiful package for one of the best action films this year. It’s a no brainer, really. Buy this, or be prepared to meet Charlize in stairwell and explain why you aren’t adding it to you collection…...

Mondo & Bleeding Skull Video Present: JUNGLE TRAP

Hey everyone! This week we're celebrating the release of the long-in-production, and long-in-restoration, shot-on-video film JUNGLE TRAP on VHS and DVD for the first time ever.

In addition to releasing the home video versions of the film, we will also be releasing Taken By Savages' all new original score for the previously unreleased film. We will also have limited copies of Milan Record's incredible AKIRA re-issue, along with the PYSCHO 7-Inch.

As usual, new releases go on sale Wednesdays at NOON (CT).

MONDO VIDEO / BLEEDING SKULL!
Jungle Trap VHS & DVD. Directed by James Bryan. Artwork by Chris Bilheimer. 72 minutes / 1990/2016 / Color. Includes fold-out poster, making-of documentary, and Bleeding Skull! Video trailers. VHS $25 / DVD $15

Shot in 1990 and unreleased until THIS VERY MOMENT. The final collaboration between exploitation demigods James Bryan (DON’T GO IN THE WOODS) and the late Renee Harmon (FROZEN SCREAM), JUNGLE TRAP is a decapitation-fueled, shot-on-video horror masterpiece about a jungle hotel haunted by kill-crazy ghosts in loin cloths. The movie remained unedited, unscored, and unseen by human eyes for over two decades . . . UNTIL NOW. Under Bryan’s guidance, the Bleeding Skull! team meticulously edited the movie and recorded a soundtrack utilizing vintage 1980s synthesizers. For the first time ever, Bryan and Harmon’s raging slab of anti-sanity can be deeply enjoyed by the world's most adventurous viewers. That’s you.

DEATH WALTZ
Jungle Trap - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Taken by Savages. Artwork by Chris Bilheimer. Pressed on Jungle Green vinyl with blood splatter Vinyl. Limited to 500 Copies. $25

The minute the Bleeding Skull! team approached us about releasing the soundtrack to JUNGLE TRAP, we knew we had to do it. The film is a riot and the newly recorded score is incredible. Droning mono synths tie the score together while head crunching analog snare hits wrestle with soaring arpeggios and melodic power synths riding over rough and dirty electronics. It’s easily as good as anything released during the '80s synth score heyday. Do not sleep on this, it’s awesome. Listen here

The Tolga Bat Hospital: where adorable abandoned baby bats are wrapped in blankets and fed with bottles.

Normally we associate bats with being blood-thirsty, but all these cute critters want to drink is some bottled milk. About 300 bat pups are orphaned every year because their mother is ill and can’t feed them or has died from tick paralysis. These furry creatures are too injured to return to the wild and need to be nursed back to health. Pictured at the hospital, the black flying animals can be seen sucking on bottles, while they are swaddled in colourful blankets. The bats can also be seen bathing in the bathroom sink and even having their hair combed by workers at the hospital. 
The Tolga Bat Hospital in Atherton, Australia, is a community group working for the conservation of bats and their natural habitat. The volunteers care for bats who have come from hundreds of kilometres away in need for urgent care. And they also take in bats for sanctuary after they have been retired from zoos.
