Never Get Out Of The Boat Playlist
Part the second of this two-part foray into oddball movie soundtracks is the Apocalypse Now Sessions by the Rhythm Devils. No tricks here: just a mad orchestra of percussion assembled to enhance the soundscape of Apocalypse Now.
Francis Ford Coppola recruited Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzman, and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead for the task. The one-time ensemble also includes percussive alchemist Airto Moreira.
The sound that starts at about 2:15 into Napalm For Breakfast is one of my favorite recorded noises. As Henry Rollins once said "I'd like to bottle it and douse whole towns with it."
