The soundtrack for this new take on an old masterpiece is equally as significant. Uniting the talents of acclaimed UK electronic balladeers CULT WITH NO NAME with legendary post-punk chamber music pioneers TUXEDOMOON, the music for ‘Blue Velvet Revisited’ is every bit as noirishly evocative as the billing would suggest. Fusing elements of contemporary classical (‘Lumberton’) to jazz (‘So Fucking Suave’) to ambient electronica (‘Do It For Van Gogh’) to krautrock (‘Jeffrey Nothing’), but never fully surrendering to any, Tuxedomoon and Cult With No Name have produced a suite that is as unique as it is representative of both artists. In addition, the album sees a contribution from electronic music Godfather JOHN FOXX, the eerie ambience of ‘Lincoln Street’ providing a perfect axis around which Tuxedomoon and Cult With No Name can weave their magic.
With glorious artwork featuring previously unseen photographs of David Lynch, Dennis Hopper, Isabella Rossellini, Kyle Maclachlan and Laura Dern, ‘Blue Velvet Revisited’ is a truly special release.
