This week, Horror Pop Sounds release a limited edition cassette of the original soundtrack to a cult 1970’s Czechoslovakian psychological TV drama, Anja & The Memory People by The Asistent.
The cassette only very limited run of 105 is the first release on the Horror Pop Sounds label, based in north-west England, who state they are “an apocryphal archive of film and TV soundtracks”. The music is interesting, mesmerising, weird, at times dark and disturbing; and years ahead of its time. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me to know this was actually recorded in 2016 by a pale-faced geek with a bushy beard and an intense love for all things analogue!
Cassettes are still available from Horror Pop Sounds priced £8 each.
