Here’s an epic cinephile gift being released just in time for the 2016 holiday season. Mondo has announced it is bringing the Dust Brothers’ “Fight Club” original score back to vinyl for the first time in 15 years. The release, which includes two LPs pressed on 180-gram “Pink Soap” vinyl, will be available for purchase starting this Wednesday, November 16.
Released in 1999, “Fight Club” has emerged as one of the most popular cult films over the last decade. It singlehandedly turned David Fincher into an auteur filmmaker even fanboys could love, and that epic twist still registers disbelief even 17 years later. To this day, the psycho-thriller is the only film score the Dust Brothers have ever made, and they were approached personally by Fincher to make the music since he preferred hiring non-professional film composers to assemble the original score. Outside of “Fight Club,” the brothers have worked with the Beastie Boys and Beck, among others.
