Bend Your Ear Radio Programme No.4

Here is programme four in my occasional radio show. This time its all about the music of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth, who I have been listening to quite a lot recently. I have chosen various tracks from his early film music, from the period 1976 to 1982. Here is the track list:
01 intro (BYE ident)
02 number 5 (the fog)
03 the windows (assault on precinct 13)
04 police state (escape from NY)
05 escape (the fog)
06 chariots of pumpkins (halloween 3)
07 back to the pod (escape from NY)
08 opening (the fog)
09 orientation (escape from NY)
10 over the wall (escape from NY)
11 the president is gone (escape from NY)
12 the rock (halloween 3)
13 outro (BYE ident)
Hope you like it!


  1. Excellent stuff,I have most of the films by JC with these pieces on,always loved the ultra-analogue sounds.
    Ben, you may be interested in a performance at 18:30 tonight at Orbital Comics in the west end,its by Geoff Barrow of Portishead and features his new music DROKK which is quite JC-inspired!

  2. Very enjoyable - thanks Ben :-)
