John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Prince Of Darkness

Often regarded as one of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's greatest scores, 'Prince Of Darkness' is an essential soundtrack for all you lovers of spooky synth music and horror films. Packed with 80s synth-riffing and a bit of Carpenter's trademark DIY eeriness, the score perfectly complements the bizarre supernatural horror film. 

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Escape From New York

Wowzers, total power team up here from film soundtrack-synth wizards John Carpenter and Alan Howarth. This is a reissue of their classic accompaniment to Escape From New York, present here in expanded form: the first time this version has been pressed to vinyl. Double LP remastered from the original tapes (naturally), on Silva Screen.

Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Round three for the Halloween franchise brought big witchy vibes to the franchise, but most important for our current interests here is that John Carpenter and Alan Howarth took a thrilling new approach for their soundtrack! Yep, Season of the Witch features massive synth business, big enough to have become an underground dancefloor staple in places. Out on Death Waltz.

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myres

Unfortunately nothing to do with THE Mike Myers, Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers was the first film in John Carpenter’s Halloween series that saw Alan Howarth composing the music solo. He took to his new-found freedom with gusto, layering every-more campy organs and ghoulish synths over the bones of Carpenter’s ideas. Now the score is reissued with new artwork on Death Waltz.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

Look, everyone knows that by the time the Halloween franchise got to its fifth instalment The Revenge Of Michael Myers, the whole operation stank. John Carpenter wasn’t involved anymore, and the series had descended into cranking out lowest-common-denominator gore-fests. However, Carpenter’s old pal Alan Howarth was still doing the music, and that means that the soundtrack stands as one of the film’s few redeeming features. Now that score has been released in a nice vinyl package by Death Waltz.

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Halloween II

It's getting to the point where it feels like every other LP in the Norman stockroom is some sort of John Carpenter reissue - surely a testament to the enduring appeal of the work of the legendary film director/composer. 1981’s ‘Halloween II’ saw Carpenter linking up with Alan Haworth to rehash the music of the hugely successful first ‘Halloween’ film for its follow-up. You know the drill by now - spooky synths, ominous bass, off-kilter melodies that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, that sort of hting. This new Death Waltz edition (when is a John Carpenter release not the death Waltz edition these days?) contains new artwork by John Mann.
