ONE WAY STATIC
Notify me when back in stock
A truly eerie experimental score that uses natural devices and existing instruments, most of the percussion sounds heard are actually the sounds of the bone & teeth necklaces worn by the actors that are being played like instruments.
Prolific and multitalented composer, musician & record producer Don Peake wrote the original soundtrack for Wes Craven's THE HILLS HAVE EYES (1977) where his eerie soundtrack punched up some of the films most unnerving scenes.
Don started his music career in 1961 as the lead guitarist for The Everly Brothers and played guitar for ten years in the Ray Charles Orchestra.
Don played guitar on Phil Spector's Righteous Brothers hit "You've Lost That Loving Feeling," Ike and Tina Turners "River Deep, Mountain High" and the Jackson Five hit song "ABC" to name just a few.
He worked as an arranger for such artists as Roy Orbison, The Monkees, Wayne Newton, Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Sonny and Cher, John Lennon, The Beach Boys, Diana Ross and many, many more.
Mr, Peake was part of the legendary Wrecking Crew an elite clique of notable musicians employed by some of the biggest acts on the planet, Phil Spector even used the crew to create his trademarked 'Wall Of Sound'.
Don got his start doing movie soundtracks a year before THE HILLS HAVE EYES, with the documentary THE LEGEND OF BIGFOOT (1976) and the comedy MOVING VIOLATION (1976) and has done music for feature films and television ever since.
You'll find Don's music in the exploitation film BLACK OAK CONSPIRACY (1977), horror films like THE HOUSE WHERE DEATH LIVES (1981), THE PREY (1984), Wes Craven's THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS (1991) and SANDMAN (1993), although most people will know his musical work for the KNIGHT RIDER TV series.
