Judge Dredd breached his way into theatres ten years ago. While the Pete Travis-directed adaptation of the lawman from the 2000 AD comics was superb, it failed to be a box-office success. Nevertheless, the film has amassed an enormous following and a comic book sequel. In celebration of the film’s tenth anniversary, Mondo is releasing a 2XLP vinyl of the movie’s soundtrack.
The LPs contain the original soundtrack by Paul Leonard-Morgan and remixes/neo-classical piano reinterpretations of the score. These bonus tracks are from Mogwai, John Tejada, P.T. Adamczykm, and Paul Leonard-Morgan himself! The main soundtrack looks to be pressed on black/gold/red vinyl, while the remix is on a watery blue mixture. The 2XLP will go up for sale on November 16th at noon Central Time.
Paul Leonard-Morgan’s score for DREDD encapsulates the dystopian, noisy, and overcrowded mess of Mega-City One. From the grime of the street trash to the dusty separation of the Street Judges, you can feel it all as the score’s first track builds up, and then you’re thrust from the Cursed Earth into the chaotic mess of thousands of square miles of the city.
Original soundtrack by Paul Leonard-Morgan. Artwork by Luke Preece. Mondo exclusive pressed on 2x 140g Dredd and Slo-Mo vinyl. Includes a bonus disc of remixes and neo-classical piano reinterpretations. Initial pressing housed inside a spot-varnished slipcase.
For our readers in the UK, did any of you attend last Thursday’s Thought Bubble at the Belgrave Music Hall? Mondo was present with an exclusive Eco-Vinyl pressing of the DREDD soundtrack. Tell us about the festivities and if you picked up the new record. We’d love to hear about it.
We’re hopeful that DREDD will get a big-screen sequel or a TV series. There are so many stories to tell in Mega-City One, and they don’t all have to revolve around Judge Dredd at all. Just give us something based on the film’s grim world. Please![Source: Mondo]
