Well this is exciting. Death Waltz’s Carpenterpallooza continues with the soundtrack to his bleakly satirical dystopian sci-fi romp ‘They Live’, which you might remember saw wrestling icon Rowdy Roddy Piper up against an Icke-ian legion of body-snatching aliens bent on world domination.


It’s one of my favourite John Carpenter films and also a very strong soundtrack from John and regular collaborator Alan Howarth, taking the director’s iconic glacial synth-based style and soaking it in Ennio Morricone-style atmospheres with slow-burning tension and some nice little bluesy harmonica swells, giving the mechanical ‘80s sheen of the synth-heavy compositions a playful spaghetti western feel whilst keeping a hold on the more synthetic and futuristic aspects which the director made his trademark - a perfect fit for a sci-fi western such as this. One of Carpenter’s finest moments, I think.
