Laszlo Klemke

For many years it was assumed that the entire repertoire of late lamented Czechoslovakian film composer Laszlo Klemke had been lost (his grandmother was Hungarian if you're wondering about his first name...)

However, now, many years after his death, some of his magnificent film soundtracks are finally starting to see  the light. Selected highlights from his scores to zany spy capers "The Spyral Suitcase" and "The Danube Affair" have been released on Pumf Records' Godspunk Volumes 9 & 10.

And as if that wasn't exciting enough, Klemke's theme tune to arty French film "Le Treizieme" has just been redicovered.

All 3 can be heard here:

About Me

My photo
West Sussex, United Kingdom
Upside Down Guitar, Bass, Uke, Mandolin, Banjo, Bouzouki and Cigar Box Git. In 1984 I picked up a right handed bass guitar, but being left handed, turned it upside down and taught myself to play cackhanded. Seeing no reason to change this, I have since applied the same logic to all other stringed instruments (doesn't work so well for piano). Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to play with upwards of 25 top combos, and have been lucky enough to play gigs in England, Scotland, Wales, France, Belgium, NL, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain & the US, releasing a number of records along the way. Further details can be found on the various pages of this site. I am also a quizmaster, record spinner, radio presenter and Scrabble obsessive. Contact: eviljackmcdeath[at]yahoo[dot]co[dot]uk
