They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!


Blood on the Tracks Episode 47: The Atomic 1950s.

July 31st, 2021


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.
