On Tuesday February 24th Mondo will add another interesting selection to their ever expanding catalog of vinyl soundtracks with Jay Chattaway‘s menacing score for the 1990 supernatural slasher flick ‘Maniac Cop 2.’
‘Maniac Cop 2‘ runs on pure mood and atmosphere as the film’s undead namesake kills his way through New York City in a series of wild murders. The suspense is heightened by Chattaway’s intense score and the work of director William Lustig. To match that tone for the album’s artwork Mondo turned to the award winning creative duo Phantom City Creative. The PPC team of Justin Erickson and Paige Reynolds created a brilliant cover and gatefold design that exists in the same brutal New York City as Lustig’s film.
To complete the release the liner notes include an interview with composer Jay Chattaway about his relationship with director William Lustig and the world of ‘Maniac Cop 2.’
Here is a brief selection of Chattaway’s score —
‘Maniac Cop 2’ will be $25 and goes on sale Tuesday February 24th at a random time on MondoTees.com
