There have been hints, all of which were shot down. Then there were more hints and then October 6th came with the announcement that Twin Peaks is back (baby)! Where could I begin in explaining to you my love of Twin Peaks? My total admiration for David Lynch? My own desire every morning to have a “damn good cup of coffee”. I will save all that for another article and focus on the excitement of Twin Peaks. Here is what we know. 1. It will be a limited season, meaning only 9 episodes. 2. David Lynch will direct of the episodes 3. which will all be written by Lynch and Mark Frost. 4 Filming begins sometime in 2015 for a premiere in 2016. Are you ready?
Since Refinersfire is a record label and this is a blog article, I will try and focus on the music of Twin Peaks, rather than the hilarity of the character Lucy and my love of the Log Lady. Angelo Badalamenti is the frequent composer for David Lynch’s films and the composer of the opening music for Twin Peaks. If you aren’t acquainted with this composer’s film and tv music, we have collected videos for you to familiarize yourself with the man. Enjoy!
