Normal service (whatever that is) will be resumed once the Sometimes They Have Thorns show is over and done with, not long to go now. Meanwhile here’s the excellent new slice of excess from composer Jonathan Snipes, he of Clipping and such….
“Director Patrick Kennelly and composer Jonathan Snipes have been working together for years; from some very twisted stage theater projects to music videos for Snipes’ experimental rap group clipping. (Sub Pop). For Kennelly’s debut feature film, Snipes tackled not only the entire score, but all the sound design as well. The results are one of the most brutal explorations of body horror you’ll ever see and hear.
Heavily utilizing harsh noise and elements of the lead actresses’ intense performances as parts of the score, Snipes’ composition is exactly what you’d hope a horror film score to be: frightening as hell!! Features contributions from Christian McLaurin (Signor Benedick The Moor), Christopher Fleeger (Cooling Prongs), David Rothbaum, and John W. Snyder.”
And all that gives us an excuse to repost this, one the all time classic albums from Jonathan Snipes outfit Captain Ahab for those of you who weren’t paying attention at the time
