Fire Walk With Us: The Music Of Twin Peaks

An eerie reimagining of a damn fine TV soundtrack.

Twin Peaks: you either love it or you love it, right? Don't just take our word for it — take Janey-E's, with her reaction expressing every Peaks-loving TV fan's as well. Indeed, both 25 years ago and now, there's just absolutely nothing like David Lynch's most wonderful and strange television series. And, thanks to the music stylings of Angelo Badalamenti, there's nothing like its score and soundtrack either.

In fact, the composer won a Grammy for the Twin Peaks theme, and since 1990 many a muso has tried to follow in his footsteps. Xiu Xiu have toured a stunning rendition of the show's tunes, and now it's time for a bunch of Brisbanites to try their hand at The Junk Bar's Fire Walk With Us: The Music Of Twin Peaks, again.

As with last year's series of intimate and immersive sets, Mia Goodwin, Lucinda Shaw, SS.Sebastian and Tylea will take on vocal duties, and they'll be joined by James Lees, Sam Maguire, Rohan Seekers and Andrew Saragossi, who'll pick up their instruments. Together, they'll be belting out new renditions of Twin Peaks' minimalist, atmospheric tracks, channelling their inner Julee Cruise, and clearly imagining they're making like "the Nine Inch Nails" and taking to The Roadhouse's stage.

Booking now for the two June 23 shows — at 7pm and 9pm — is recommended, because last time they sold out quicker than damn fine cherry pie.
