29 January 2015B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin
The documentary film 'B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin' featuring Mark Reeder who also made the soundtrack for is finished and is being shown five time at the Berlinale film festival.
Komakino by Joy Division is included on the film soundtrack. Reeder also made a 5.1 surround mix of it as well as for all the other songs in the film, including Neubauten, Malaria!, Die Unbekanten and Anne Clark.
Mark says "as we only had the original stereo tracks to go on, it took us ages to do, having to filter, slice and then reconstruct everything back together to sound like the original, but in 5.1."
Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.
Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
