John Carpenter
Dark Star - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Dark Star was the first feature film that John Carpenter directed: he also, naturally, provided the soundtrack, a smorgasbord of synthy bleeps, bloops and tones. This reissue on we release whatever the fuck we want comes as a 12” with the OST and a 7” featuring an Alan Howarth rework and a locked groove of sound effects.

Christine (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The iconic soundtrack to John Carpenter’s 1983 horror classic Christine, developed from Stephen King’s novel of the same name, comes to vinyl once again. This special blue-coloured edition arrives after a resurgence of interest in Carpenter’s work in recent years, and this work, made in conjunction with Alan Howarth, is a prime example of his unique talent.

John Carpenter
Big Trouble In Little China

It's an unusual one this but it had to happen eventually; '80s kitsch cult movie classic 'Big Trouble In Little China' gets its soundtrack re-released and given the full Mondo treatment on gatefold double-LP with lovely artwork by Phantom City Creative. With idiosyncratic composition and production from John Carpenter's own studio machines in partnership with Alan Howarth, the score features heavily pulsing synths and is both bouncily upbeat and darkly haunting. Impressive, eh? Unique.

John Carpenter
Halloween - 40th Anniversary Edition

The worlds of film and music are hell-bent on squeezing every last drop of juice from the reboot of John Carpenter’s Halloween. This one here is not to be confused with a soundtrack album for the 40th anniversary movie - it is, in fact, the 40th anniversary edition of the ORIGINAL 1978 score. Apparently the first official release of this soundtrack was a remixed version, so for this new edition Carpenter’s partner-in-crime Alan Howarth has faithfully copied over the film's audio tracks in the same order in which they appear on-screen.

John Carpenter
Halloween (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Halloween is the latest Classic American Movie to be wrent from the tomb of history and paraded around the cultural flatland that is the Millennial West. The distinction that sets this latest big-budget remake apart from your King Kongs, your Tomb Raiders and your Jumanjis is that whoever’s helming the new one managed to get the main reason it was good in the first place - John Carpenter - back on board. Carpenter’s also redone the music, which is what we have here. Yes, it may be spooky. But you know what’s really scary? The snake of popular culture devouring its own tail.

John Carpenter
Lost Themes II

The horror master returns with a swiftly followed up sequel to his 2014 album 'Lost Themes'. Several collaborators from that project remain including Carpenter's son Cody but this time the composers had the luxury of spending time collaborating in the same city. This has led to a more focussed work with a wider palette of sounds. Next stop for Carpenter? The road.
