A super-dope electronic classic – John Carpenter's original soundtrack for his 1976 film Assault On Precinct 13! The main theme of the film is tremendous – early, raw electronic drums and bass – all moving in a slow, spacey, heavy funk sort of style – with nice noisy touches on the fringes, and an overall approach that's as thrilling as the film. The other tracks follow with a similar approach – using some really spare electric drums to set the pace, then filling in the rhythms with sinister bits on keys, bass, and added percussion. The whole thing's a pre-hip hop, pre-electro masterpiece – with a sound that's almost more mindblowing today than it was back in the 70s! Titles include "Street Thunder", "Main Title", "Napoleon Wilson", "Energy Stop", "Wrong Flavour", "Well's Flight", "Walking Out", and "Second Wave". (Limited pressing, housed in a nice gatefold tip on jacket – and super super heavy!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
