Nosferatu - (1989)
After garnering a reputation as an idiosyncratic dance band/avant jazz group with two albums under their belt, The Club Foot Orchestra embarked on providing scores for silent films... probably one of the first groups to do so - they certainly paved the way for others like the Alloy Orchestra and other ensembles to also succeed in that niche. Club Foot Orchestra has a Nosferatu score written by Richard Marriott with contributions by Gino Robair. The score was premiered at San Francisco State University in April of 1989. Based loosely on Dracula, this German masterpiece remains chilling today.
