Horror Soundtracks: VHS Tracking

We specialise in Betamax – forget VHS it will never take off


Man about town and star of RTRFM’s Movie Squad ‘I Love Movies…’ Tristan Fidler hosts the Halloween edition of VHS Tracking on Up Late – a sprawling collage of horror movie soundtracks over 3 hours with dialogue, trailers and other incidentals.

Tristan says:

 I am proud of this show – mainly because I survived playing eerie, creepy music alone in a studio late at night. Truly felt like a Final Girl when the show was over, haha.

– Only now do I realise I completely forgot to play Goblin’s ‘Suspiria’. Massive oversight.
– Of the music I had on hand, I avoided playing ‘Utrenja (Ewangelia)’ from The Shining because I knew it would freak me out too much.
– I also didn’t play Iggy Pop’s ‘Why Was I Born?’ from Freddy’s Dead but more because it is a pretty terrible song (not one of Jim Osterberg’s finest moments)”.

The GoatMan Original Soundtrack – Performed by the Unseen

….an interesting soundtrack over at The Active Listener. The story roughly transcribed from The Active Listener Bandcamp Page goes something like this…

Last summer, at a horror movie convention somewhere in London, I was introduced to Septic Boaby. We had both grown up in West Lothian, Scotland, a few miles apart, but had never met. Immediately impressed by his knowledge of British horror movies, and by his enthusiasm for electronic music, I shook his hand with vigour whilst making noises of extreme enthusiasm. Later we met again at a pub where we discussed film soundtrack memories and a film seen when we were perhaps ten years old. It was about a young married couple who move to a Somerset cottage and have a terrifying encounter with the occult. It was called The GoatMan, it was made in late 1973, and it was directed by Simon Grundig.  Septic was delighted that I remembered, and agreed at once that the film was indeed called The GoatMan. As children, we had been profoundly unsettled not only by the film’s content, but also the musical score, recorded by a duo calling themselves The Unseen. (Amazingly, we both remembered the name from the opening credits.)…

Essential Soundtracks – Morvern Callar

First in an occasional series exploring essential and obscure soundtracks for listeners of the Golden Apples to add to thier collections. In this film a rich and intriguing story unfolds following Morvern’s journey from a prosaic life on the remote Scottish coast to self-abandonment and re-invention in sun drenched Spain. The beautiful visuals are wrapped in a soundtrack that is more like a personal mixtape shared with a friend and includes tracks from Can, Broadcast, Boards of Canada, The Velvet Underground, Stereolab and Lee Hazelwood amongst others…
