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 a bunch of Brisbane musos have tried their hand — and they're bringing Fire Walk With Us: The Music Of Twin Peaks to Chapel Off Chapel on Tuesday, June 26 and Wednesday, June 27.
An intimate and immersive sets, the show features Mia Goodwin, Lucinda Shaw, SS.Sebastian and Tylea on vocal duties, 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 60-minute shows, held at 8.30pm each night, is recommended — in Brisbane, their first run sold out quicker than damn fine cherry pie.
