Throwback Thursday: An Interview With Robert Williamson On His Score For Clive Barker’s ‘Midnight Meat Train’ Starring Bradley Cooper!


Lakeshore Records sat down with composer Robb Williamson on his score for Midnight Meat Train (credited as Robert Williamson & Johannes Kobilke).  He spoke about his transition into the film music world and being inspired by the murderous character, “Mahogany,” on this horror score journey.  You may remember his score for the acclaimed film, Gamer (co-composed with Geoff Zanelli), and if you haven’t seen both movies — Midnight Meat Train (rent it on iTunes) stars Bradley Cooper (Burnt, American Sniper) and Vinnie Jones (TV’s “Arrow”, Snatch), and is based on a short story by master of horror Clive Barker — we predict good times ahead for fans of dark films!

‘Buffalo ’66’ & ‘Gamer’ Claim Spots In The Dissolve’s Movies’ 50 Greatest Pop Music Moments List!

#44 Gamer
“I’ve Got You Under My Skin” by Sammy Davis Jr.
Gamer (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Set to the utterly appropriate sounds of Sammy Davis Jr.’s rendition of the Cole Porter standard “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” Castle and his minions boogie and bop like refuges from the creepiest Busby Berkeley film ever made, then break formation to test Kable in hand-to-hand combat. Hall dances like a puppet on strings, playing up the themes of control inherent not only in gaming, but also in fight and dance choreography.

#18 Buffalo ’66
“Heart Of The Sunrise” by Yes
Buffalo ’66 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Download The Album: iTunes (UK Only) | Buy CD

To the minor extent that Vincent Gallo’s directorial debut has a plot, it involves his character, Billy, seeking revenge on the Buffalo Bills placekicker whose missed field-goal attempt ostensibly ruined Billy’s life. Near the end of the film, Billy finally shows up at the strip club owned by the retired player, gun in hand. Rather than accompany this surreally staged, grotesquely violent scene with music that might actually be heard in a strip club, or even music that would conventionally heighten the intensity of a shootout, Gallo chooses—yes!—Yes. Not only does the track’s sinuous groove provide plenty of offbeat tension as Billy walks in, it thrillingly shifts into high gear at the precise moment that he spots his victim. Prog kill! —Mike D’Angelo

Lakeshore Records Pick Of The Week: ‘Gamer’ Soundtrack – Movie Stars Gerard Butler

This week, we select Gamer, a Lakeshore Records movie soundtrack with music by Robert Williamson and Geoff Zanelli.  Williamson and Zanelli constructs a futuristic gladiator-meets ultimate gamer music album.  It’s hard not to get into the action when epic guitar riffs, deep drones and disturbing metallic samples serve as the audio play-by-play in this story about beating the odds in a Dystopian society.

Lakeshore Records: Gamer Soundtrack Starring Gerard Butler

Kable, a prisoner in the future (played by Gerard Butler) must fight for survival while a murderous computer programmer (played by Michael C. Hall), plots to game his real-life shoot ’em up game by having Kable killed off.  Gamer (watch on Amazon): badass music paired with fierce action is a win-win.
