"You know those movies where the picture just starts to slow down... and melt? Then catch fire? Well, that's Berlin..." Official soundtrack to the 2017 film based on Antony Johnston's graphic novel The Coldest City starring Charlize Theron. Includes cues from Tyler Bates' score slotted alongside a few notable classics revolving around the film's Berlin setting: After The Fire's "Der Kommissar," Peter Schilling's "Major Tom," Nena's "99 Luftballons" (plus a modern day cover by Kaleida) as well as some all-around classic 80s joints: George Michael's "Father Figure," A Flock Of Seagulls' "I Ran (So Far Away)," David Bowie's "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)," Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Cities In Dust," The Clash's "London Calling" (ok, technically 1979) and a cover of "Blue Monday" by HEALTH for good measure (also don't sleep on "The Politics Of Dancing" by Re-Flex). If owning all the tunes on wax in one click wasn't already enough, Mondo have gone the extra mile with this edition, pressed on neon pink double vinyl with deluxe gatefold jacket and obi strip.
