David Lynch & Alan R. Splet: Eraserhead Soundtrack
It is with great pride that Sacred Bones Records announces its official, expanded, re-release of the soundtrack to David Lynch's landmark 1977 film, Eraserhead. This limited deluxe edition of 1500 includes: a 16 page booklet, three 11"x11" prints, digital download, and a limited edition Peter Ivers 7". A-side of the single is "In Heaven" and the b-side unearths a newly discovered original Ivers recording entitled, "Pete's Boogie"taken from the original audio tapes and mixed by Lynch himself. To lay in the dark and listen to this dizzying succession of blissful noise is a different way to get "lost" in the vast space of then the visuals of the film itself. It's no stretch to consider this soundtrack an experimental, early industrial masterpiece. Eraserhead's individual passion and personal tone shines through even in the thickest moments of fierce static, an audio undertaking that took Lynch and sound designer Alan Splet years to perfect.
