At the start of 2011 65daysofstaitc did a live re-score to the 1972 sci-fi film ‘Silent Running’ at the Glasgow Film Festival. At the time, it was thought that it would be limited to those two nights but that expanded and there became a demand for release. So this is exactly what 65daysofstatic have done. The record will be released on November 14.

“Writing it has been a cluster-f*** of messy technology and syncing issues that we will hopefully sweep into the corners of the stage and cover with a rug of sci-fi bleeps and pointless-but-fun melodrama. The music is original, noisy, and kind of old-school 65, inspired by watching a man in an all-in-one talk to a rabbit, eat a melon and engage in aggressive gardening,” says the band.

This ‘Silent Running’ soundtrack has been pressed onto heavyweight vinyl – the only way they could do it to fit with the warm analog fuzz of the original film. Having a record released this way has also necessitated the tumultuous return of Dustpunk Records – a beast that has long lain dormant. It released the band’s first ever EP ten years ago.
