ANDREW THOMAS WILSON
The Chain Reaction OST LP
Described as 'Mad Max meets the China Syndrome', the 1980 Australian film The Chain Reaction is an often overlooked entry in the highly venerated Ozploitation genre. Composed by Andrew Thomas Wilson, the soundtrack is a forgotten piece of 1980s electronic film scoring. A clash between driving electro-pop and the ominous dirge of John Carpenter's The Thing and The Fog soundtracks. Layers of icy modular synth and proto techno rhythms serve as the backdrop to the explosive biological-apocalyptic meltdown.
