RELEASE DESCRIPTION

Waxwork Records is set to release HOUSE Original Motion Picture Soundtrack! Also known as HAUSU, the 1977 Japanese experimental Horror film written and directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi. The plot follows a schoolgirl traveling with her six friends to her ailing aunt’s country-home where they come face to face with supernatural events as the girls are, one by one, devoured by the home.

The soundtrack to HOUSE features original music by Asei KobayashiMickie Yoshino, and Yoshino’s Japanese rock band, Godiego. The now classic soundtrack effectively lures you into a false sense of security. Beginning with upbeat pop-sing-a-longs and jovial tracks such as “Buggie Boogie” and “Cherries Were Made For Eating”, the soundtrack slowly transforms into a dark sonic landscape of chaos and psychedelia. The second half of the soundtrack offers a juxtaposed tone that sets the stage for dismemberment, man-eating pianos, flashing colors, hallucinatory visions, and the gallons of blood seen in the film.

In a successful attempt to attract younger audiences, Obayashi asked Yoshino to include tracks from his rock band Godiego, which also makes a cameo in the movie. Fusing elements of funk, jazz, rock, and romantic ballads, the soundtrack captures the absurd and whimsical nature that is HOUSE, contrasted with its experimental scenes of horror and madness.

In celebration of the movie’s 45th Anniversary, Waxwork Records is thrilled to present HOUSE Original Motion Picture Soundtrack officially for the first time outside of Japan, and re-issued for the first time outside of Japan since its 1977 debut. Complete with 180-gram two-color split with splatter-colored vinyl and pink swirl vinyl, deluxe packaging, new artwork by Jake Foreman, heavyweight gatefold jackets with matte coating, a 12”x12” art print, and more!
