On February the 5th 2021, John Howard Carpenter, American film director, producer, actor, screenwriter, and composer also known as The Master of Horror as released is third stand-alone album : Lost Themes III: Alive After Death.
John Carpenter created Lost Themes albums in collaboration with his son Cody Carpenter and his godson Daniel Davies (son of The Kinks’ guitarist Dave Davies) :
“I have minimal chops. Minimal. You know, I’m not really a great player. And my son is.
I don’t pretend to be able to play guitar solos, but my godson can.
If I hum a melody, my son can play it. So I don’t have to worry about how good I can play.
So yeah, it’s perfect.”
This mixtape is an hommage of John Carpenter’s all-time classic films.
“I don’t want to see them again. I see the mistakes. That’s all I can see. It’d be torture. Are you kidding? I don’t want anything to do with them after I’m done.”
This mixtape is also dedicated to my step-son Oskar “Oskarpenter” Grange and to my dear friend Didier “Didz” Séverin.
