Four cues from the OST lp ‘Copenhagen Climax’ by Rockford Kabine and Marcella & The Forget Me Nots, Salon Elegance Recordings, 2013.
Yes! 2013. Blimey O’Reilly, an up to the minute contemporary soundtrack has found its way into my home and onto these pages. I was tipped off about this record by some idle chatter on a rather silly online forum devoted mostly to endless images of coloured vinyl horror soundtracks. Not my thing- I really don’t get it, the multi variant coloured wax collecting craze. But hey, mustn’t bitch, as without those odd bods I would never have come across this scary beast.
I’ve written before about the danger of seeing films because one enjoys the music. It can invariably lead to disappointment. In the case of ‘Copenhagen Climax’ I would suggest it may lead to revulsion (depending on your disposition) as the movie is billed as a ‘fuck film’, and I don’t think they’re exaggerating, judging by the image found on the film’s home page that I visited in order to place my online order for this lp.
Buying it also lead me to acquire Rockford Kabine’s equally murderous electronic soundtrack to the doubtlessly charming super 8 porn flick ‘HoxXxton’ (see what they did there?). Soon afterwards, related but unsolicited postcards began to arrive in the mail for me- I suspect that I was being invited, or worse, welcomed into the fold. The images were such that I felt a little uneasy about just popping them on top of the paper recycling. Neighbours will talk you know….
Anyway, enjoy the music, steer clear of the film, and do grab a vinyl copy online. It still seems to be under the radar and they’ll send it to you for a tenner all in.
Lastly, I copied the image above from the internet rather than take a snap of the album as it’s still in shrink wrap and therefore too reflective to photograph. I’m leaving it that way- it feels safer (and seems appropriate) to keep an impervious protective layer between this record and myself.
