ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A surreal, hallucinatory soundtrack for a heat-warped American West somewhere between nowhere and hell." (4 stars)
- MOJO magazine

Abstract. Psychedelic. Blues. Country. Avant garde. Jazz. Progressive. North Americana. Stoner rock. North Africana. Sonic. Ambient. Exotica. Haunting. Brooding. Hypnotic. Beautiful. Compelling. These adjectives could describe the melting pot of musical moods from Bob Keelaghan and Muerte Pan Alley’s The Soundtrack to Intersection and Music For Inside the Ku Klux Klan, but that doesn’t clarify the motion picture.

Two soundtracks for two films by two directors grace this platter (and internet download). Both were originally scored by Keelaghan (ex-Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir) as largely solo guitar pieces.

At different times each director encouraged him to release the music. After mulling it over for an overly-extended period he enlisted his Muerte Pan Alley bandmates Jay Woolley and Rob Oxoby, embellished the arrangements for some tracks, expanded others into songs, revived bits from the cutting room floor, and strung them together into two musical suites. The intention was to assemble the compositions and six-string soundscapes to play out with the dramatic arc of an auditory movie for intronauts and visually impaired persons alike. Rest assured, these were the best of intentions.

Part one is the music from Intersection, a short film by up-and-coming American director Brendan Beachman. The clever, very dark, existential comedy played at the Palm Springs International Short Fest, Oxford Film Festival, and Foyle Film Festival among others. It won an award for best editing from Rhode Island’s Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Film Festival and was a daily pick on Filmshortage.com.

Part two is music originally written for BAFTA award-winning documentarian Daniel Vernon’s Inside the Ku Klux Klan that aired on British TV in 2015. Following a Missouri chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, it foreshadowed the spotlight on the resurgence of racist groups in the American socio-political landscape during the 2016 presidential election campaign. As a grim postscript to the doc, in February of 2017 Frank Ancona, the leader of the KKK chapter documented in the film, was murdered.

Beachman and Vernon similarly, but unrelatedly, contacted Keelaghan about using the music of cult country-blues clang bangers Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir for their projects. Coincidentally, conversations with each director evolved into asking Keelaghan to take a stab at doing original scores, since he could capture more moods than the AMGC back catalogue. (Muerte Pan Alley formed after the demise of AMGC, of which Keelaghan and Woolley were members.)

Muerte Pan Alley’s 2015 debut Clunk & Sputter, a collection of divergent roots, rock, and world music influences, received some enthusiastic reviews and pockets of campus radio airplay. Other people ignored the fuck out of it. Which will it be for The Soundtrack to Intersection and Music For Inside the Ku Klux Klan? Cliff hanger.
