DEATH WALTZ
Porno Holocaust - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
Music by Nico Fidenco. Artwork by Corlen Kruger. Pressed on 180 Gram red, Green & White Vinyl. $30

PORNO HOLOCAUST is an outrageous 1981 Italian sexploitation horror schlock from Joe D’Amato. A group of scientists land on a deserted island to discover a rather well endowed radioactive sex-crazed monster that takes a liking to the female scientists in the group. Loaded with X-rated sex scenes and generous amounts of blood and gore, it's sleazy enough to avoid showing your parents or loved ones. The score by Nico Fidenco is another one of his incredible blends of funk, moody synth and fuzzed-out disco. Easily up there with ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST and his EMANUELLE films. Essential stuff from an unsung maestro. First time ever on vinyl.

 

 

DEATH WALTZ
Werewolf Woman - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Music by Lallo Gori. Artwork by Luke Insect. Pressed on 180g colour in colour vinyl & housed inside a 425gsm gloss varnish gatefold jacket. $30

WEREWOLF WOMAN (original title LA LUPA MANNA) is a 1976 Italian exploitation sleazefest with the emphasis on sex and violence. A beautiful young woman channels an ancient family lycanthropy curse into her hatred of men stemmed from horrific abuse at a young age. She finds, seduces, and rips out the throats of all suitors she stumbles across. It’s the kind of film that could (only?) be made by Italian’s in the '70s with serious story undertones giving way to ever more blatant sex, nudity and blood. The score by Coriolano “Lallo” Gori is absolutely wild and we can’t believe it isn’t more well-known than it is. Propulsive percussion, theremins, mono synths, funk and jazz collide to create an incredibly captivating listen. Wild synths bubbling over skittering jazz drums is thrilling enough, but Gori intersperses some beautiful mellow themes throughout to temper the madness.

500 copies pressed on 180g color in color vinyl housed inside a 425gsm gloss varnish gatefold jacket.

The original score to IT COMES AT NIGHT was composed by Brian McOmber (KRISHA), a former member of acclaimed indie band Dirty Projectors. McOmber’s score utilizes synths, lonesome strings and the occasional tribal drum, which conjures a kind of primal darkness in the music that is both foreboding and deeply unsettling.
