Dork Art: Mondo's Vinyl Halloween
In the last year or so, Mondo has been trickling out a rather varied array of vinyl releases. Stuff like The Deadly Spawn, Oblivion, the recent Maniac, and Drive have all seen their soundtracks blessed with the Mondo exclusivity treatment. I haven't bothered in the past, but I may make an exception for their upcoming release of John Carpenter's Halloween. Apparently this is the first time the entire score has been provided on vinyl, and considering it's a masterpiece of simplicity akin to John Williams' JAWS, I'm shocked by that very notion. Naturally, the record will hit the internet on October 31st. The art is supplied by Phantom City Creative, We Buy Your Kids, and Jeff Proctor. It's doubtful you'll be able to score one from Mondo, but I'm sure ebay will have them for a few hundred dollars seconds after Twitter announces the random sale time. If you want a more detailed rundown, check out GQ. Yes, Mondo is so popular now that GQ writes about their releases. So bizarre.
