David Lynch’s new project gets odd, and the coffee in Twin Peaks really is damn fine!

May 16, 2009

I just got back from the diner from Twin Peaks. That’s a damn fine cup of coffee. We had the cherry pie too. It’s in North Bend, Washington if you are ever near Seattle. I really wanted the autographed Log Lady photo.

Anyway, by now everyone knows David Lynch has been at work with Danger Mouse and a member of Sparklehorse on an album/photography book project  called Dark Night of the Soul. Very limited release, and so far it’s been mostly word-of-mouth news on the project. What would have been awesome will now will be an odd affair: It’s reported that the album was scrapped because of a record label dispute. So apparently the book will now be released with a blank CD stating something like “For Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will.” For now, NPR has a stream of the album, which has input from the likes of Frank Black, The Flaming Lips and Iggy Pop on it. Really, why does anyone sign with a major label anymore? Buy DIY.
