Adding to the boom in soundtracks being given a loving reissue on CD, cassette and vinyl One Way Static Records has released the wonderfully moving and eclectic soundtrack by David Alexander Hess for Last House On The Left.
As varied in tone as Wes Craven’s notorious nasty from 1972 Hess, who plays to brutal Krug in the film, created a real gem. Unlike many other companies that release they albums just on vinyl this release has also been made available on CD and digital download.
It’s well worth picking up for record collectors and that cover is lovely
A spokesperson from One Way Static said:, “David’s work here contains some truly beautiful songs, the discovery of which, for some, may be in stark contrast to the brutal displays of sadism and violence for which he was known to purvey onscreen. The fact that Hess could perform as both the poet, and the monster, is a testament to his skill as an artist. The soundtrack to Last House on the Left is a brilliantly unique and diverse mixture of farcical comedy, poignant, reflective folk music and instrumental experimentalism. Hess constructed a wonderful counterbalancing entity, which serves only to accentuate the impact of the movie.”
Last House On The Left by David Alexander Hess is available on coloured vinyl and flexidisc, black vinyl, download and CD from One Way Static Records now
