  • John Gary Williams | "I See Hope" | Documentary

    Back in the summer of 2010, we flew out to Memphis to embark on a project that’s still unfolding as we type this. The trip was coined ‘Soul University’ by our friend John Hubbell, who has spent the past 6 years working on a feature length documentary about Southern soul giant John Gary Williams, one of the key voices of legendary Stax vocal group The Mad Lads. From ’64 to ’72, The Mad Lads expertly combined sweet soul, doo-wop and eventually a little bit of psych. Hubbell, along with John Gary, invited a number of us to Memphis to sow the seeds for what’s shaping up to be a brilliant doc entitled I See Hope. Read more

  • "They Live!" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack | Composed by John Carpenter & Alan Howarth

    For the score to one of his most iconic films John Carpenter and Alan Howarth created what can really only be described as electronic blues. The score is recognizable as Carpenter but has a dusty slow pulsating western feel that really does give it a life of it’s own. The They Live OST is easily one of Carpenter and Howarth's best and most unique collaborations. The 1988 film follows a nameless drifter referred to as “Nada”, who discovers the ruling class within the moneyed elite are in fact aliens managing human social affairs through the use of a signal on top of the TV broadcast, concealing their appearance and subliminal messages in mass media. Yikes! Read more
