Various Artists - Scarred For Life 2 2LP
Following on from the last and sold out “Scarred For Life Volume One” CD and the subsequent clamour for a vinyl version, here is a second volume of TV themes for the shows that might have been, or actually never were.
An unashamedly hauntological deep dive into an alternative 70s/80’s where our viewing reality was slightly warped. Gauzy memories of our early interactions with the TV, long buried, but remaining in the periphery of our childhood memories...
Pocket Pavilions, Correlations, Oliver Cherer, The British Stereo Collective, The Metamorph, Salvatore Mercatante and Apta all appear for the first time on SFL to deliver a choice array of fantastic themes.
Each piece of music, though intended to establish the mood of the series it accompanies, is deservedly popular in its own right, with several of these tunes already having made an impression on the upper reaches of the pop charts.
From disorientating science fiction to creeping nuclear paranoia via unsettling children’s themes, "Scarred For Life 2" is a record crammed with favourite tunes from your favourite programmes, so unrest assured that these pieces will not only give you many hours of listening pleasure but will also provide a lasting memento of your individual choices in the world of TV.
