godzilla.jpg

The Atomic age is upon Blood on the Tracks this month as all sorts of strange radiation-born monsters are invading the perfect utopia that was the 1950s *cough-cough*. Anyway, it was a great decade to be a sci-fi and horror fan, and it was a decade that produced a lot of great film scores. Lee curates a playlist that reflects some of the best examples of this fact, in his opinion.

Blood on the Tracks Episode 35: Pasta Cowboy Music Part 1 - A Fist Full of Vocals.

May 31st, 2020

BotT.jpg

Even if someone has never watched an Italian Western, there's at least a good chance they've heard the soundtrack or score from one. While Lee has featured some tracks from Italian Westerns before on the show, he's never done a dedicated look at the genre. This will be part one of three shows attempting to cover the scope of music that came from the Italian Westerns. Episode one is focused on selections that have vocalists on the tracks singing a song of some sort (note: the typical chorus of unintelligible chanting found on many Italian Western scores does not count in this case). As mentioned before, in some cases, you'll encounter a track that has been featured on a previous episode, but the majority of these shows will be featuring new material. Also, although he states on the episode that he was trying to keep this episode within the usual confines of an hour runtime, he quickly discovered the folly of that, as there is too much great music to play. Expect all of the episodes in this series to be as long as they have to be.

Lee is hunkered-down in his secret bunker this month (actually, it's every month), doing his best to avoid the Coronavirus.

February 28th, 2020

Cinematic adaptations of H. P. Lovecraft's work have been pretty hit-or-miss over the years, but even a lot of bad adaptations have had some fine music attached to them. This month Lee digs through about 40 years of the notable examples. Get your ear buds in, your elder signs ready, and don't bloody well read from the Necronomicon, if you know what's good for you.

Blood on the Tracks Episode 31: Bastard Alien(s) Part 2.

January 31st, 2020

Lee returns for a second look at music from films inspired by "Alien" and "Aliens". While there are a billion of these rip-off films, Lee quickly discovered when attempting to source the music, most of these films just don't have available soundtracks/scores, and even the ones that do usually only come from sources of dubious quality. That equals a bit less music than usual, and more talking from Lee. We know you're thrilled!

Blood on the Tracks Episode 30: Bastard Alien(s) Part 1.

December 31st, 2019

"Alien" (1979) and its sequel "Aliens" (1986) have influenced countless films in their wake. They both have possibly created, and definitely have made previously existing tropes popular, cementing them into pop culture to the extent that one can easily recognise an "'Alien' formula" in many different films, regardless of setting. In this episode Lee explores the soundtracks and scores of films that clearly display this formula. Considering the vast amount of films out there to choose from, there will at least be a part 2.

After a Halloween break Lee returns for more Blood on the Tracks. This month Lee looks at the soundtracks and scores from films that are about films, film making, or at least are in some way connected to this theme.
