John Harrison and the Music of Creepshow

This November will mark the 40th anniversary of Creepshow, the legendary collaboration between writer Stephen King and director George A. Romero, a colorful tribute to the gory horror comics of the 1950s.

But the jewel in Creepshow‘s crown was the wonderful soundtrack created by composer-director John Harrison. 

Based around an original interview, hear how John grew up watching sci-fi movies at his local cinema, toured with R&B legend Roy Buchanan, connected with George Romero in Pittsburgh – and almost completely by accident – came to score one of the most exciting soundtracks in horror film history.

Playing every Friday and Saturday night on FOTW Radio in your time zone!

GPS: Some places are best left unmapped!

Have you ever done something so stupid, that it’s left you completely afraid?

“GPS: Some places are best left unmapped” is a unique horror audio story from the land down under! Three young guys on their way to a pool party are led astray by a faulty GPS app, taking them through the backroads of the industrial west of Sydney. After losing their friend in a creepy terrace house, the two remaining boys end up somewhere much darker still, with only a bonfire to guide them!

Originally broadcast on the Halloween Listening Party on FOTW Radio, GPS features an original synthwave soundtrack, including the music of Irving Force, Machine Gewehr & Gees Voorhees, Guy Tallo, Dance with the Dead, Dynatron, Europaweite Aussichten, Deru, Daniel Deluxe – and a creepy incidental score by Kimberly Henninger & Shawn Parke.

GPS is also being released as a limited-run cassette as part of Cassette Week 2022. It’s available through Bandcamp  – but if you live in North America, you can order a copy through AndVinyl Records in Tennesee, and Tapehead City in New York, which will give you cheaper shipping. And if you live in the land down under, it’s available in Newtown at Repressed Records.
