The horror master himself, John Carpenter returns to the UK this October to perform his renowned film soundtracks and original compositions and will be playing at Manchester’s Albert Hakk.
Carpenter is responsible for much of the horror genres most striking soundtrack work in movies such as Dark Star (1974), Assault on Precinct 13 (1976), Halloween (1978), The Fog (1980), Escape from New York (1981), Christine (1983), Starman (1984), Big Trouble in Little China (1986), Prince of Darkness (1987) and They Live (1988) to name a few. An album featuring new recordings of these classic soundtracks and more, Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, was released in October 2017 by Sacred Bones Records.
It’s work that instantly floods his fans’ musical memory with imagery of a menacing shape stalking a babysitter, a relentless wall of ghost-filled fog, lightning-fisted kung fu fighters, or a mirror holding the gateway to hell.
