2010 Halloween Countdown Part 5: The Splash Band’s John Carpenter Disco Album.

We’re back on our disco theme today and yet again it hails from Germany. Back in 1984 an enterprising musician by the name of Ralf Hennings, and an engineer called Elmar Noderer, thought it would be a good idea to record an album of John Carpenter’s film scores, but also reinterpret them as disco versions. Ralf, wherever you are, you were right! Though it’s not strictly disco in the way that Soul Dracula swings and bops. If anything it reminds me of Gary Numan.

The album is sadly long out of print and now a collectors item. Here’s the full track listing and if you have to hear the rest it can be found here:

01 The End (Disco)

02 Unheimliche Schattenlichter

03 Das Ding

04 The Fog

05 Christine

06 Halloween I

07 The End

08 Halloween II

09 Die Klapperschlange

Here’s Ralf’s version of Humanity Part 2 from The Thing - German translation: ‘Das Ding’. Ignore the fact that Ennio Morricone wrote the score for that movie, it didn’t bother Ralph so it shouldn’t bother you.


Thanks for listening.

Tomorrow we get spooky with REM.

Last year’s countdown can still be found here:
