JOHN CARPENTER Lost Themes (Sacred Bones)
Since I first realised that John Carpenter had written the theme to his 1976 classic Assault On Precinct 13, Ive had some respect for him as a composer. Over the years hes carried on writing his own film scores, but this is his first foray into mainstream music. Despite the title, its an album of new, stand-alone tunes, synth-based as always, and ably assisted by his son and godson. Not just for fans of his films.
