Morricone Youth takes on ‘Mad Max’ score

News / Preorders / December 27, 2016

Morricone Youth, a band that specializes in re-scores of classic films, is releasing their Mad Max live re-score onto vinyl. You can see the details on the band and how they pulled it off, below:

Brian Kantor also drums with Nina Persson of The Cardigans, Nathan Larson of Shudder to Think, Higgins, Fruit Bats, Yellowbirds and Sam Cohen. The synths and keyboards used were all analog, mostly owned by Joe McGinty (of Psychedelic Furs/Loser’s Lounge) and maintained in Carousel Vintage Recording Studio where we tracked with engineer Steve Silverstein (regular TapeOp contributor and member of Christmas Decorations). 

The pressing is coming out on Jan. 27.

Their record release party is being held at Nitehawk Cinema in NYC.
