Asian Dub Foundation rescore THX-1138
Asian Dub Foundation have created a new soundtrack for George Lucas' THX-1138, and will be performing it live at London's Barbican Theatre in June.

From the site's announcement:
"Asian Dub Foundation perform live their new soundtrack to George Lucas’s cult sci-fi classic – a chilling dystopian fantasy set in a post-apocalyptic future.

The group’s brutal, beautiful, sparse and thick interpretation of the score, set to the visuals, transports you to a world where mood-stabilising drugs are mandatory, sex is prohibited, and a young Robert Duval rages against the system.

Produced by Francis Ford Coppola, THX 1138 has gained cult status over the years, with the soundtrack by Lalo Schiffrin and sound design by triple Oscar winner Walter Murch having been sampled by a host of influential electronic artists including Nine Inch Nails, UNKLE, Orbital and many more.

Frequent collaborators, Asian Dub Foundation have mixed their trademark fusion of punk, electronic beats, reggae, bhangra and hip-hop with artists such as Radiohead, Chuck D, Primal Scream and Sinead O’Connor, criticising control and oppression."

Sounds good! :-) Asian Dub Foundation rock...

Shame it isn't a couple of weeks later when I'll be in London for a different George Lucas base event. Hopefully there is some kind of home video release/download, or somebody tapes it.
