David J - V For Vendetta
upc: 646315 512328
Bauhaus David J teamed V For Vendetta creator and fellow Northampton, UK hipster Alan Moore in 1983 to write a "soundtrack" to Moore s graphic novel. At turns dark and atmospheric, edgy and thrilling, twisted and sardonic, this 27 minute EP is the perfect sonic partner to Mooreís futuristic tale.
Says David J: “In 1983 my friend Alan Moore approached me with the intriguing idea of composing some music to go with a set of his lyrics which would comprise the entire text to an episode of his serialized graphic novel, V For Vendetta–a transcription of the music to also appear under each panel of the strip. The story was an Orwellian vision of a dystopian near future set in a tyrannized England – the hero, V being a mysterious vigilante with a certain vaudevillian bent.”
Two of these tracks were released (appropriately enough) in 1984 on a Glass Records 12”. The other five are released here for the first time.
