Song to Watch Girls Get Stabbed By?? :)
(I love it.)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:03pm

This does seem like music you'd want to wave a stiletto and tie around to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm

Love this opening song. I need a drink with an umbrella in it. Where’s that pool boy when you need him? Greetings all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm

wow - i was singing music to watch girls during the last tune.

Ivers and Laurel Near singing.

I literally JUST posted that as my favorite track off Rumble: twitter.com...

This set reminds me of my old neighborhood video rental store and its 'Midnight Movie' section. RIP Video Connections.

The Harder They Come I always remember as a mainstay on Night Flight.

Wiki says sung by Near, composed by Ivers, written by Lynch en.wikipedia.org...

nice lullaby from a horror film here.

Wiki vs Discogs!! www.discogs.com...

Devon E. Levins:

I've always been under the belief it is Ivers. I think it says it in the end credits.

lost and found....

thanks for spinning...

this ISN'T from a war picture with telly savalas and george peppard?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm
Devon E. Levins:

Imdb sez: Though "Lady in the Radiator" Laurel Near was an accomplished singer who had performed folk music with her sisters Holly and Timi, when she is seen singing "In Heaven (Everything Is Fine)" she is actually lip-syncing a vocal track of musician Peter Ivers, who composed the song at David Lynch's request.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:34pm

Yeah, I had always thought it was Ivers singing myself and then I started seeing conflicting things. If it is I imagine they sped up his voice or something.

Rich in Washington:

The recentish reissue of the Eraserhead soundtrack included a bonus 7" that had an unheard, unissued song by Ivers, a spooky organ instrumental.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm

Wiki's footnotes have more about The Pixies' cover than about the track...so I don't know where they came by it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm
Rich in Washington:

Ivers had a pretty high register voice himself, but he does sound like he's sped up somewhat there. His solo records are a hoot, by the way.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:43pm

@Rich Sacred Bones put that out, as least two different pressings now.

There's a book about Ivers called In Heaven Everything Is Fine and one about New Wave Theater producer/creator David Jove called Freedom Spy that make for interesting contrasting viewpoints.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm
Rich in Washington:

It's a wonderful package. I've got it.
Keep meaning to read the Ivers book but haven't yet. He was a fascinating figure. Seeing those Best of New Wave Theater segments on Night Flight was life changing for me.

Wasn't there some kind of Doc about Ivers & his ambiguous demise ??
Avatar 7:47pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

NewWaveTheater of course. Had to cling to whatever we could get...stay up for up...ruin our lives & so on...He did wish us a pleasant sleepwalk...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm

A lot of Ivers' Hollywood friends think punks (including some serious speculation regarding Lee Ving) and a lot people think it was Jove (who evidently had a violent temper) and others a random home invader.

I haven't seen a doc about him though there is a pretty good one about Jack Nance called You Don't Know Jack.

Not sure about a documentary, but it seems warranted.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:54pm

Different cover on the book now, huh.

Loved New Wave Theater. I remember the first time I saw Angry Samoans on there doing Ballad of Jerry Curlan and wondering how this could be happening with no censoring.

This sounds a bit like “Dip in the Pool.”

Thanks for a fantastic show, Devin! I'm probably going to rewatch most of these films now thanks to you!

Thanks for the show!!!!
