Artist: Zombie Zombie
title: Plays John Carpenter
label: Living Tapes
reviewer: Johan Nederpel (Blibs for the Hips)
Another tape that first was released on cd. On this one there are four interpretations of the music score works of John Carpenter by Zombie Zombie. Not to difficult to make up from the name of the release, is it?
It completely sounds like those soundtracks for 80’s series and movies like Knight Rider, Miami Vice or Beverly Hills Cop. Real bass-driven tracks with a little cheesy sounding leads upon it and topped of with preset sounding drum rhythms.
All songs do have a great drive to them, which keeps you nodding your head. Especially ‘Assault On Precinct 13’ sounds better the original. Closely followed by the ‘Halloween’ and ‘The Bank Robbery’ theme. Only the original ‘The Thing’ theme is slightly better than the one made by Zombie Zombie.
All in all a great interpretation of the works of one of my favorite directors. Going to watch Christine again, i guess…….
