A Night At The Scala (Movie Soundtrack Mixtape)

A Night At The Scala (Movie Soundtrack Mixtape)

About the show

Playing tracks by

(2 seconds of Francis Lai, Kate Bush & Michael Kamen, Drimble Wedge & The Vegetations (Peter Cook), John Carpenter, Michael Small and more.

Perhaps you need to be a movie fanatic to enjoy this mix. I don't know - you tell me. I actually think all these tracks stand up on their own as listening masterpieces. Even the strange, scary ones.

Inspired by my teenage nights at The Scala Cinema near Goodge Street where you would end up after the clubs shut. I remember nights coming down from speed unable to take the usual uplifting delights of Pasolini and sipping coffee with Jah Wobble. Watching the mayhem as the Carburton Street Squat rabble came down: Boy George, Marilyn, Steve Strange and Philip Sallon hurling bitchy comments at all the straight boy post-punkers. I saw Throbbing Gristle, 23 Skidoo, Spandau Ballet and Modern Romance play there! I got my movie education there. There's nothing better than watching 'Eraserhead' or 'Female Trouble' with a packed house full of clubland's finest dressed up to the nines. I even wrote a song about the Scala, 'Twinkle (Step Into My Mind)'.

In loving memory of late night Scala x

Has anyone noticed how the theme from Emannuelle is basically Cat Stevens' "Wild World"?
