Spun Out Of Control Vinyl Releases

The first 2 vinyl releases from cassette label Spun Out Of Control will be released and in stock at Strange Vice at the end of September.

Soundtrack to dark psychological drama ‘Sodium Party’ by Irish composer Steve Nolan is debut vinyl album release on Spun Of Out Of Control

Having released 20+ cassettes since the label’s inception in 2016, Spun Out Of Control momentarily moves from tape deck to turntable to celebrate its 2nd anniversary, releasing one of its earliest sold out tapes – the soundtrack to the film ‘Sodium Party’ – on vinyl for the first time ever.

Limited to 300 hand-numbered units on classic black wax complete with Japanese-style obi strip/band, the debut vinyl release on London label Spun Out Of Control is a film score that mixes almost industrial electronica with pretty, if haunting, piano motifs.

Though very much showcasing the epic talents of composer Steve Nolan, previously keyboardist with 90s Irish industrial electronic act InDust, fans of Angelo Badalamenti and Nine Inch Nail’s musical offerings for the movies and TV work of David Lynch will also find much to savour here.

The soundtrack has been primped and polished to perfection by Steve since its initial release on cassette, with this 2018 re-master for vinyl overseen by Antony Ryan. Features specially commissioned cover and label artwork by designer Eric Adrian Lee. Download card with all retail copies. Catalogue number SOOC LP1.

Correlations’ cinematic dark synth sequel ‘Aftermath’ is

2nd vinyl album release on Spun Of Out Of Control

Limited to 300 hand numbered units on coloured ‘Sky Blue’ vinyl complete with Japanese-style obi strip/band, the second ever vinyl release on London label Spun Out Of Control is an album of beautifully cinematic electronica in which layers of buzzing synths weave epic earworm melodies for the listener.

‘Aftermath’ by Correlations forms the follow up to last year’s cassette release ‘Night Acquisitions’, also for Spun Out Of Control, which sold out from the label within days.

The players on ‘Aftermath’ read like a veritable who’s who of contemporary electronica and soundtrack work.

Led by Correlations’ main man Neil Hale, the album also features the playing of Pablo Clements from Toydrum, Simon James of The Simonsound and has been exclusively mastered for this vinyl release by Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle).

Specially commissioned cover and label artwork by designer Eric Adrian Lee. Download card supplied with all retail copies. Catalogue number SOOC LP2.

New Tape From Spun Out Of Control Coming Soon

New tape from Spun Out Of Control coming soon

Cinematic synth soundtrack to 1983 erotic thriller ‘Midnight Demon’ finally gets a physical release!

‘She came to feed… she’s staying to breed’. Recalling 1980s film scores by Brad Fidel and Tangerine Dream, the long lost electronic soundtrack to 1983 grindhouse ‘classic’ Midnight Demon, by short-lived LA synthesizer duo Turquoise Moon, is finally unearthed by boutique music label Spun Out Of Control.

Presented as a limited run cassette + digital release with re-worked artwork by Eric Adrian Lee and re-mastered from the original tapes by Andy Fosberry, this is the most complete version of the score, which mixes pulsating synth pads with expansive ambient soundscapes, in existence.

Choose from two coloured tape shell options: ‘Purple Prey’ or ‘Neon Blue’, each limited to 75 units each.

Re-discovering Turquoise Moon’s other-worldly score to ‘Midnight Demon’:

Turquoise Moon were an American synth duo of Terry Ferrello and Frank Heisenberg, recording and releasing music from 1981 to ‘86. The pair met in ’81 while living in Mountain View, California, and working as game developers for Atari Inc. Here they discovered a shared fascination for synthesisers and drum machines that they cracked, modified and rebuilt. Choosing the name Turquoise Moon, the duo wrote instrumental music out of Frank’s basement, which they self released on cassette via independent stores and fanzines throughout the Bay Area during 1982.

One of these rare tapes made its way to the hands of LA-based writer and director Kyle Caruso, who had cut his teeth directing commercials for the automotive and high end perfume industries and was about to embark on shooting his first feature film. That film was Midnight Demon.

Terry and Frank were invited by Kyle to move to LA in June of 1983 to compose music for the movie – an opportunity they jumped at, as the video game crash was beginning to take hold of the industry. Midnight Demon was scored in nine days using a Roland JX-3P, a Juno-60, a Jupiter 8, several cracked and unrecognisable Moogs, a Linn Drum and a Simmons SD-7 drum brain.

On the strength of the soundtrack Turquoise Moon signed to Capitol Records, for whom they recorded an album that, for reasons unknown, remains unreleased to this day. Undeterred, they resided in LA through early ’85 to write the score for Midnight Demon 2, before finally calling it quits in 1986.

Due in stock early June
