ScoreKeeper Says, "Let's Rock! I've Got Good News..." TWIN PEAKS Music Galore!

Published at: Dec. 12, 2011, 8:25 p.m. CST by scorekeeper

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here interrupting my dance with the dream man to deliver a dish so delicious your ears can't be denied. An AICN reader emailed me today to tell me about the shenanigans happening over at David Lynch's web site. Color me intrigued.

That's right! That gum you like is going to come back in style. Since March of this year Lynch has been slowly releasing unreleased tracks from TWIN PEAKS labeled as an "open album" steadily growing ever since. THE TWIN PEAKS ARCHIVE is now holding strong at 106 tracks totaling more than five hours of music! Each single track or small bundle is $0.99 while multiple track bundles are priced at $2.99 or $3.99. You can choose between high-quality 320kbps MP3s or Apple Lossless format.

 



There's a great article over at Wikipedia that chronicles the release of all the music from TWIN PEAKS including FIRE WALK WITH ME.

I purchased about half the archive tonight and am currently downloading what I bought. I'll probably do the rest later tonight or tomorrow.

There's been no single show in the history of television that has stirred my passions quite like TWIN PEAKS. I still consider it the single most amazing program in the history of TV. Having all this music is a real treat. I wonder how long he can keep this going? How much more music is there?

I'd love hang red velvet curtains in a room floored with black and white herringbone tiles and play this entire archive on a continual loop 24/7.

...the birds sing a pretty song and there's always music in the air.

  • Since you seem to be one of the most In-the-know on the subject of motion picture scores. Is Hans Zimmer really doing The Dark Knight Rises solo? If so, why did James Newton Howard depart? Not that I don't have confidence in Zimmer bringing it, but they were such great collaborators on the first two films. Just curious. Thanks!

    I want a Gold Edition Fire Walk with Me to go with my Gold Edition boxed set of the series. I want to see the deleted scenes so I get a little more of that world that I miss. And I'm going to have to consider some of this music too. I already have fond memories of the theme, Audrey Horne dancing in the Double R, and that creepy/pretty ballad that Maddy sang with James and Donna (You're my daddy! You're my daddy!). I absolutely LOVED Donna, and it saddens me that Lara f'ed up her face with plastic surgery. In any case, Donna got screwed like everybody else in the finale. Except Shelly and Bobby, how did they score the only happy ending?

    I've every piece of music Badalamenti/Lynch ever released. They're sublime. Remember that little bit of music in Cabin Fever that was absolutely beautiful and changed the film for about a minute? That was Badalamenti lending Roth a piece he wrote.<P> And in my opinion, the soundtrack to Fire Walk With Me is probably one of the best pieces of music i've ever heard. Every track on it is stellar: Questions in a World of Blue; Sycamore Trees, Black Dog Runs At Night and the fucking Pink Room, a freakily hypnotic piece. Time to go and put it on...

    by gaygoonie

    X-Files, Lost, Desperate Housewives, CSI, Six Feet Under, The Killing, True Blood, The Sopranos, Picket Fences, Northern Exposure...they all, and others, owe a huge debt to TWIN PEAKS, which made TV the equal of film. (nowadays, it's arguable TV has surpassed the quality of cinema...). I hope that young TV fans will check this deeply creative, bold, somewhat flawed but ultimately rich show a shot on DVD.

    by RockLobster800

    While it's true that the second season does fall apart a bit, I'd still tell people to power through to get to that last episode. The season finale of that show is probably one of the finest things Lynch has done in his whole career. It's not just a great bit of TV, it's a work of art unto itself. I'd say the show goes off once Coop gets suspended from the FBI, but even the beginning of that episode, where he and Harry are saying their goodbyes etc, is terrific. But yeah, the whole Coop in the chequered shirt/Billy Zane/James Snorely and that chick from the other town/Miss Twin Peaks thing...Doesnt work as well. Saying that, the reformed Ben Horne always cracks me up.Funnily enough, the whole thing picks up again when the suspension is lifted. That episode, where Gordon Cole gets the horn for Shelly Johnson and they keep making Truman throw up to get over his hangover is one of my favourite eps. Anyways, just bought Dark Mood Woods...Great bit of sombre synth, heavily cut down on the official soundtrack. Says on the info that you can hear Lynch raving about it on the original recording..You'd think they'd keep that in, people love shit like that

    by JoeSixPack

    Twin Peaks is the finest show ever put on the small screen. The music is iconic.

    Twin Peaks love

    by Michael Lunney

    The entirety of Twin Peaks , yup, all of it, even what people want to call the lesser episodes of the second season, was probably the most brilliant TV series ever. THe media told people during the second season that is was "being made up as it went along", so therefore it wasn't good. What a load of horseshit, the same criticism that Lost suffered through. All TV shows are made up as it goes along. Just rewatch the whole thing. If you don't like some episodes as much as other, well, by comparison. that's TV for ya. There is probably a minute of two in 2001: A Space Odyssey, that is not nearly as brilliant as the minute of 2 that preceeded it, but such meaningless games are for idiots.

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    Am I the only one bothered that Lynch swears he'll never go back to the Twin Peaks universe (sequel or whatever), but he does stuff like this -- milking every bit he can, monetarily, out of that show? Maybe it's just my "bitter" showing, but that's really annoying to me. Plus, I've already got the albums for Twin Peaks (the show), Fire Walk With Me, and Season Two (the show). So David really needs another $56 from me? Really? Ah, who am I kidding? Of course he does. Just wish he (or, hell, at this point, anyone) would take us back to Twin Peaks. Fuck. I even drooled over that "Psych" episode tribute to Twin Peaks, "Dual Spires."

    by Michael Lunney

    I presume you have seen the version of Twin Peaks movie that that has a different ending. Twin Peaks on video is a confusing and convoluted story. The original two seasons of offbeat murder / mystic / camp melodrama came out on extremely expensive Japanese import laserdiscs. Then Image released a two box set that contained all but the opening episode. That was re-edited into a feature (for European use) that, contradicting the series, 'wraps-up' the mystery for the purposes of closure. This feature cut was released to home video and Laser domestically, adding to the confusion.

    Mcgootoo

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    I have to disagree with you on that season two stuff. And you will find no bigger lover of Twin Peaks than me. Seriously. And the reason I disagree is this -- I never, ever, ever give a fuck what "the media" says. I watch and I make my own judgments. The fact is that season two suffered from a couple of different things. First, Lynch was less involved than he had been during season one. Why? He was filming and editing "Wild At Heart." Second, part of the story of season two was mapped out by Frost, et al., and was to feature a Cooper-Audrey love affair. You can clearly see the groundwork for this both in season one and the first half of season two. However, Kyle Maclachlan balked at this, insisting that Cooper would never get involved with a teenage and he refused to do the storyline. As a result, during the second half of season two (widely regarded as where the series really slipped), writers had to scramble to come up with other stories ... And to introduce two new love interests for Coop and Audrey. Thus, you got the quick intros of Annie and John Justice Wheeler and some whirlwind bullshit in order to get the pieces in place for the Windom Earle finale. If you've read one of the tie-ins (Dale Cooper's autobiography), imagine how much better the build and the end would have been with someone we've been with since the beginning like Audrey Horne truly menaced by Windom Earle, someone who perfectly would have mirrored the storyline with Earle's wife (whom Coop fell for). Admittedly, at the time, I agreed with the decision. In retrospect, I'm not so sure. Even if they didn't "go all the way," I might have liked to have seen some more from the innocent and disturbed Audrey and the stalwart agent. Too, I love Annie, but she really just seems like an afterthought in order to provide Coop with some personal stake in the Windom Earle plot. Audrey, I think, would have provided more. Furthermore, second season, three storylines were SEVERELY lacking -- the James film noir story, the Little Nicky orphan story, and the Ben Horne goes Confederate apeshit story. Any one of those stories might have been fine as some Lynchian diversion from otherwise dark shit, but all of them together turned the show into a pale reflection of its former glory during that second season. Finally, there was a lot of debate between Lynch and the rest of the creative types at Lynch-Frost and the suits at ABC about the mystery of Laura Palmer. Lynch never wanted it solved. Others disagreed. I have to side with the others against Lynch. The mystery needed to be solved and a new mystery introduced forthwith. They were a little feet-draggy on that, too. Don't get me wrong, though. The worst episode of Twin Peaks is still vastly superior to almost everything else on television. I watch that first season and then selections from the second season every year. It's a great, great, great, great show. But it's not so great that I can't recognize its flaws in that second season.

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    The European ending that basically incorporates Coop's dream in the third episode? Yep. Got it. Actually, if memory serves, that ending was first released on VHS (yes, I'm that old) as the European ending (contractually obligated by their pilot deal with ABC). I first owned the season one boxed VHS set. Then I got the entire series VHS set. Then the DVDs. A couple of years ago, I picked up the Gold Box edition. I fucking love that roundtable discussion that they have in the boxed set. Love it. My wife and I (and she's not very much a fan) are always quoting lines from Twin Peaks. In heavy rotation is, "Get the picture?" "I even got the frame." Also, randomly, we say shit about gum coming back in style and "I ordered no creamed corn." Oh! And "let's rock!" Sigh. Best. Show. EVAH! Love everything about that show. Even that second season is vastly superior to almost everything else on TV.

    by frank

    If I were forced to say which was better, I would probably go with The Wire, just because it was consistently great without fail throughout its entire run, whereas Twin Peaks faltered at times, imo. However, I think the high points of Twin Peaks exceeded those of the Wire. David Lynch is a foe beyond any of us.

    So, how did Twin Peaks falter? Or is it just you memory of being told by the media that Twin Peaks was faltering in season 2? I remember being told by the media that it slipped in season 2, but had no idea why this was being said, except it was a way to get it off the air, by planting the seed that something was amiss, even though it wasn't, people tune out because they are programmed to see what isn't there. Same thing happened to Lost, even though it was superior in it's entirety.

    Maybe one a day episodes of TP was too much at once, like eating too much of your favorite food for a week. Guess you had to be there to truly appreciate it. Times have changed. Oh well. I thought the entire series was brilliant, but I was not surprised that it was cancelled so soon, because American TV audiences are fickle and not very sophisticated when it comes to recognizing quality. What is top rated now? How I met Your Mother and 2 and a Half Men. Yup. If the show came on now, exactly as it was originally presented, it would be a big flop.

    the difference between TWIN PEAKS and Lost is that the formers was made by very talented people, while the later was made by retard untalented stupid babbons. it makes a difference. TWIN PEAKS is great television. The comparitive Tv shows that can match it's quality are shows like ROME and CARNIVALE. And speaking of quality thriller police prpocedual dramas shows, i found out a really great show called "Forbrydelsen". It's a danish TV show and it's made of total awesome, and completly addictive from episode one. It's so good, it was remade as an american TV show called The Killing. Which is hardly as good as the original, sad to say. You should check it out.

    Fair enough. I still think it is a strong contender for best television show ever. Season two had some great moments, to be sure, not even counting the finale. I will probably revisit it some time. It’s such a strange show that I am actually surprised that it even got the ratings it did. I heard that Mullholland Drive was originally supposed to have been a miniseries. That would have been amazing, I bet. Not that the film wasn’t amazing, but a miniseries could have potentially gone even deeper into the concepts that the film explored.

    Lynch is a one of a kind genius. A cinematic treasure. An old girlfriend of mine gave birth to her first kid on Lynch's birthday, the same day I happened to be seeing Blue Velvet for the first time in a theater in 1987. I have seen his artwork on display, and his art is a blessing for film fans. If you have never seen this collection: Lumiere & Co. (1995) is a collection of forty one-minute shorts made to commemorate the Centennial of the Lumiere Brothers' first "motion picture". Each director used the restored original Lumiere camera to film their short, preceded and followed by a short interview. Lynch's minute, compared to all the others is by far the best and a superlative a demonstration of creative genius. Other directors include Wim Wenders, Zhang Yimou, John Boorman, Spike Lee, Costa-Gavras, Peter Greenaway, Lasse Hallstrom, Michael Haneke. Watch other of the shorts for comparioson-- It should be easy enough to find: http://tinyurl.com/7ped597

    One Chance Out Between Two Worlds

    by NeonFrisbee

    Chance is better. It plays more into what Bob is trying to do by possessing people. "I want to taste through your mouth."

    On the Air

    by animatronicmojo

    Did anyone ever see the other Lynch-Frost TV outing, "On the Air" (1992)? Canceled by ABC after only airing three episodes, I somehow managed to see all eight eps on tape, and, I have to say that this was another great show brimming with genius. If anyone has read Lynch & Frost's unproduced "One Saliva Bubble" screenplay (their first collaboration in 1987-available on LynchNet.com), it comes closest in tone to that one, doing what they did so well with Twin Peaks when not dwelling on the darkness and larger mysteries of existence: unbridled existential absurdist dada slapstick insanity. Bits of it are on YouTube, but I would love to see the whole thing again.

    On The Air was zany fun.

    by frank

    An eleven on the wackiness meter. I think I only saw (on VHS) the three episodes that aired. Didn’t realize there were more.

    You identify some of the many problems with soldiering on past the end of "who killed Laura," but not the biggest one: the series ended on a cliffhanger. Yes, some people will try to rationalize it as a fitting ending (Cooper becomes that which he has sworn to destroy to save the woman he loves), but in reality it was the midpoint of a storyline that Lynch was never allowed to (or decided not to) finish.

    Give me a break on the S2 bashing.

    by mgs316

    Saying to stop watching after the Laura Palmer resolution is just stupid. You get Windom Earl, more Bob, Black Lodge, Dugpas, etc. Is it better than season 1, no, but to say not to watch it is just pretentious. I find the mystical aspects of the second season more intriging overall though the show quality is less.

    I've noticed that the older I get, the better S2 becomes...

    by REMcycle

    ...granted, I never thought it was BAD, just too 'separated' from the Laura Palmer storyline. Still, I grind through the whole series about once a year and am always discovering new little pathways through the second season. It's almost like a conundrum. Twin Peaks really is the gift that just keeps on giving...even after 20 some-odd years.

    write it in your diary

    by Chad

    My name is Annie. I've been with Laura and Dale. The good Dale is in the lodge and he can't leave. Write it in your diary. (And make sure they aren't on the pages that get ripped out after you are murdered, damn you!)

    very old rumors

    by Chad

    I remember rumors several years ago that Kyle and Lynch were discussing doing some kind of "Agent Cooper" story that would take place in TP years later, probably not connected to the cliffhanger. ...But now that 25 year mark is coming up, and it would make some kind of "weird sense" (as James, or Lynch, might say) to enlist as many regulars as possible, and look at the continuation of the cliffhanger from an an entirely different point of reference (as Cooper described relativity to Sheriff Truman once upon a time in regard to Glastonbury Grove, the circle of sycamores, and the weirdness beyond the red curtain). Time was already established as a variable within the Twin Peaks cosmology. It would be so much fun to suddenly find everyone older, either in completely different contexts, or contexts exactly the same. Can you imagine Cooper coming out of the bathroom 25 years older, to find some of the main characters also 25 years older? That hook alone would draw me in, and exploring that story with Lynch on board, with the mysteries of Glastonbury Grove in the background, and with possible military interests still hovering Twin Peaks like a UFO over it all... Would be a thing of beauty. But that probably only exists in my dream world of possible Lynch films. (But MAN, what a dream.)

  • It's mostly dark humour, but it's of the top highest quality. David Lynch can come up with the most hilarious things, real rolling in the floor laughing stuff. soemtimes, his funny stuff happens at the same time of his scariest stuff. David Lynch is excelent with humour. Well, he's excelent with everything, really.
