Limited vinyl LP pressing. One Way Static Records proudly presents: Ulli Lommel's The Boogeyman (Original 1980 Motion Picture Soundtrack by Tim Krog & Synthe-Sound-Trax). Ulli Lommel was a German writer, actor and director. In the '60s, he took up roles in films by Russ Meyer and Rainer Werner Fassbinder which resulted in him both getting several nominations and winning awards. Later Lommel moved to the US in 1977 to work with Andy Warhol and to direct movies from the likes of Cocaine Cowboys and Blank Generation. In 1980 Lommel directed The Boogeyman starring John Carradine, which became a 'slasher genre' hit and made the UK's banned Video Nasties list. To underscore his film, Lommel needed a soundtrack that fitted the times like the synth based John Carpenter styled soundscapes used in Halloween. By the late '70s, electronic music had achieved new heights of popularity. Technological innovations such as the Mini-Moog became a weapon of choice for new composers, churning out chilling electronic music that showed the industry it's full creative potential. For this he turned to Tim Krog and his team Synthe-Sound-Trax (SST for short) composed out of Jan Barlett and Ed Christiano. This trio produced a soundtrack far more progressive and unique than one might expect. Moving easily between traditional melodies and more experimental textures, The Boogeyman's score is a superb example of an economical but highly effective scoring style that would be prevalent throughout the ensuing decades.
