Alongside the recently resurrected (but previously unreleased) seminal scores for 'The Wickerman', 'Deathline' and 'Psychomania', Stalney Myers 'Sitting Target' is another UK thriller soundtrack that has sat in the proverbial 'can' for over 30 years while cinematic sonic-enthusiasts have had to make do with homemade bootlegs taped from second generation video tapes in hope of soundtrack amnesty. After composing 'groovy-movie' music for films such as 'Otley' and 'No Way To Treat A Lady', the 'Deer Hunter' axe-meister brings us his most forward thinking fuzzed-out-orchestratral-proto-hip-hop score to date (albeit three decades late).
A must hear

"My man Andy Votel reissued this, and it is one of the best pieces he has dug up.
Sitting Targets is a soundtrack by Stanley Myers to a movie I can't find. The score is mostly based on a dissonent two note piano theme-played HARD- which swings back and forth like a sick pentullum. Myers adds horns and strings, but never strays far from his basic idea.
The result is frightening, hypnotic, and SICK AS ANYTHING YOU WILL EVER HEAR. Like being strapped on a convayor belt headed towards a meat grinder.
Get a few changes of underwear and sit down and listen to this. You're gonna love it."
