Who's keeping the Belgian film score?
What's the story behind Pool Needle? Why have we decided to take the dive and launch a new record label?
A year ago
I (Tim Geyssens) love music and have been a heavy fan of movie soundtracks / scores since I was able to buy my own cd's (yes this was the nineties, vinyl was pretty much gone from the smaller music stores). The Full Metal Jacket cd was 1 of the first albums I bought. Soundtracks/scores bring you back to the atmosphere of the flick During the Napster era I discovered loads of other scores and soundtracks. By downloading (i know sorry) as a student you are on a budget and not a lot of that can go to entertainment. Diving into music history and looking for more titles I stumbled upon the movie grooves site (an uk based webshop of soundtracks/scores/library music). The shop is gone today but you can still view it with the wayback machine. They had a huge collection and also recommendations, kept track of new releases... What also attracted me was the amazing cover art of most of the releases.
Fast forward a few years when I had a job, I also had a budget so of course I started collecting those records I remembered from the site.
So the record collection is growing but I do miss Belgian releases... since we have a lot of great composers/scores that simply don't get a physical release.What
Attention to detail and quality in every step of the way. Not jumping on the vinyl hype just because ... but bringing great BE scores that would probably never see a physical release with unique cover art designed by Belgian graphic artists. In a limited pressing. So heavily influenced by the fine folks at https://waxworkrecords.com/ and https://mondoshop.com/How
Joining forces with the composers, production companies and directors to deliver a unique vinyl record with artwork made for the cover by Belgian artists. And even liner notes with sweet details about the movie/music by Robin Broos (author of The Original Soundtrack).
The records are also manufactured in Belgium by our friends at https://www.dunkpressing.com/ and will be available in selected shops (an indie store variant will be pressed exclusive for record shops besides the web exclusive variant only available here).
