1979 saw Goblin working on the soundtrack for this Italian film starring Jaqueline Bisset and Terence Stamp. Believe it or not, the title track was informed more by Burt Bacharach than prog, but the old classic proggy Goblin sound does rear its head on parts of this soundtrack.
Have a listen to this rare, unusual-for-Goblin track from Amo Non Amo, released in the USA as Together? Turntabling has this Goblin soundtrack on vinyl for sale while supplies last…
Here’s some of the more what-you’d-expect from Goblin from the very same soundtrack:
What is it about Italian cannibal gut-munching movies and their soundtracks? These movies are infamous in their nasty ways–pure gross-out from start to finish that has you either becoming an instant fan, car-crash fascinated, or so revolted that you can’t stand the idea of watching another second.
The Italian jungle cannibal movies are, for some of us, a bizarre artifact of the history of cinema that deserves further study. One reason why? The soundtracks.
What kind of music do you expect from a film titled Make Them Die Slowly? Or Cannibal Holocaust? In today’s filmmaking environment, metal is probably the very first thing that springs to mind–or some kind of abrasive industrial music or crossover industrial metal…you get the idea.
So when you click on the YouTube clips below to hear what Make Them Die Slowly, AKA Cannibal Ferox, has to offer, the inunitiated will not only be shocked and confused, but probably then want to see the movie to experience the full cognitive dissonance that goes with hearing THOSE soundtrack sounds combined with the images reproduced on album covers like the reissue of Cannibal Ferox on One Way Static Records, which is for sale at Turntabling while supplies last. (It should be pointed out that the version linked to here is the very limited edition Uncensored Version with all the squishy brain eating imagery some know and love.)
What you see here is the setup for the Turntabling-curated Sexy and Scary Vinyl art show on the 5th floor of the Bridgeport Art Center (Friday June 20 2014 starting at 6PM). There are a LOT of vinyl records on display for this one-night-only art show, plus film trailers, music and more.
One question that has come up about the show and about Turntabling in general is whether we sell records (yes we do!) and where you can buy those records.
Turntabling.net has a record and CD shop on Discogs.com and our inventory grows weekly–sometimes daily, depending on the finds we make in a never-ending search for the hard to find, the rare, the weird, the unusual, and just plain awesome vinyl records.
While we aren’t selling records at the art show on Friday (the show is all about the images, the album covers and the culture behind these albums and the films associated with many of them) we are happy to discuss the sale of these records and many others like them. Please feel free to drop a line with wish lists and requests for more information to:
We are actively looking for other venues to bring the Sexy and Scary Vinyl art show to–if you want this display in your record store, special event, art space or other venue, do get in touch at the same address.
Turntabling is also branching out to Etsy once more–we have a small, but soon-to-be-growing inventory there that you can explore at https://www.etsy.com/shop/Turntabling.
And finally, Turntabling buys record collections–if you have one to sell, get in touch by email:
