The Eraserhead original soundtrack recording will get the special vinyl reissue treatment in August from Sacred Bones Records. This deluxe edition includes the LP, a 16 page booklet, three 11" x 11" art prints, digital download, and a 7" of the heartwarmer above, "In Heaven (The Lady in the Radiator Song)" penned by Peter Ivers and performed by Laurel Near. (Yes, the song later covered by The Pixies, Devo, Bauhaus, Miranda Sex Garden, Tuxedomoon, Faith No More, etc.) The 7" B-side is a previously-unreleased Ivers track from the Eraserhead sessions.

  1. I really like this movie. But now I’m imagining the pinging and the crying in the full sonic range that only vinyl offers. And I’m cringing. 

  2. Her name is Laurel Near, not Nears, I know cause she lives in the same town as me and runs a performing arts camp called S.P.A.C.E.

  3. Oh boy. This could really make an album collection. Just think of all the times you could put the Eraserhead soundtrack on your record player and listen to it, because it is so pleasant to the ear. You could play it for your dates.

    1. Dude, thank you! I’d rather hop in a dumpster and burrow around in hot garbage than watch or hear Eraserhead. It’d probably be a far more meaningful experience too. Brother, let us rally on this point of taste!!!

        1. It’s a great way to lose weight, what with the nausea and vomiting for a week.
