Eraserhead soundtrack getting deluxe vinyl reissue
David Lynch's surreal first feature Eraserhead has an unforgettably odd soundtrack. Composed by Lynch and Oscar-winning sound designer Alan R. Splet, the film's whirring, clanking noises predated the birth of industrial music, but aside from a 1981 LP release on IRS Records that was also available on CD for approximately 12 seconds in the late '80s, the soundtrack has never been properly available on disc.
Sacred Bones Records is at least partially rectifying that oversight with a lavish limited-edition vinyl reissue of the Eraserhead soundtrack, due August 6. The set will include a 16-page booklet and a bonus seven-inch single of The Lady in the Radiator's song "In Heaven," backed with "Pete's Boogie," a previously unissued track by the song's composer, cult musician/TV personality Peter Ivers, who was murdered in 1983.
