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 a quarter of a century 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 Brisbane Powerhouse's Fire Walk With Us: The Music Of Twin Peaks.
As they've done in previous years at The Junk Bar, Electric Moon will assemble a 12-piece ensemble of musicians to reinterpret Badalamenti's compositions, this time for the Wonderland festival. Together, they'll be belting out new renditions of Twin Peaks' minimalist, atmospheric tracks, channelling their inner Julee Cruise, and maybe even imagining they're making like "the Nine Inch Nails" and taking to The Roadhouse's stage.
Booking now for 6pm show on Sunday, November 24 is recommended, because these tickets usually sell out quicker than damn fine cherry pie.
