BEETLEJUICE OST (30TH ANNIVERSARY) – STARBURST Magazine

For the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s afterlife comedy Beetlejuice, Waxwork Records went and remastered Danny Elfman’s score. While the music has always been vibrant and bombastic, it’s arguably never sounded this good before. Geffen and UMe reissued the album on vinyl back in 2015, but it was essentially just the original 1988 album, repressed. … Continued

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) – STARBURST Magazine

The music of George A. Romero’s 1968 genre-defining horror classic, Night of the Living Dead, has long been a mystery.

We’re not off to a good start with this year’s Halloween Horror Marathon. I basically haven’t been home any night this week before 6:00pm, and there’s been something waiting for me every night.

Podcast #99, “Pop Scares”

cover - Waxwork-Re-AnimatorThree weeks, and here we are with another podcast. I think this might be the start of something good. Here’s to hoping, right?

Anyhow, a goodly amount of new / newly-acquired tunes, along with an interview from Kevin Dredge of New Orleans-based soundtrack reissue label, Waxwork Records. We talked with Dredge about the ins and outs of reissues, as well as the label’s upcoming releases. Their first release, a reissue of the Re-Animator soundtrack, is out tomorrow.

They also just announced last week that they’ll be reissuing the Krzysztof Komeda score for Rosemary’s Baby. You can find out the details on that (as well as order things) at the Waxwork Records website.

And if you’re really hyped on the Waxwork Day of the Dead reissue, they’re having a release for it in Hollywood, in late September. According to Dredge, “There will be a screening of the film, and George Romero and John Harrison will be there to do a Q&A after the film.” No date’s set, but keep your eyes peeled.
