George Auric / Jean Prodromides
The Innocents / Blood & Roses
Finders Keepers Records
the finders kreepers imprint has been revived to bring long lost pieces of vintage horror weirdness back into print.
A forerunner to a generation of lullaby lead horror scenes (such as ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ and ‘Profondo Rosso’) the most unnerving attribute of ‘The Innocents’ was the recurring childlike song that haunted the corridors and gardens of a haunted house in between bursts of concrète effects and drones (made by an uncredited Daphne Oram). the flipside is the unforgettable soundtrack to a dream sequence montage in ‘blood & roses’ combining graveyards, claustrophobic corridors and a bizarre clinical blood transfusion scene.
