Analogue Hashtag’s debut album is inspired and influenced by some classic TV themes, in particular the work of composers like Edwin Astley, Barry Gray, Lalo Schifrin and Ron Grainer. The imaginative listener might just detect a narrative thread running through the album. This might involve an agent during the cold-war period being sent behind the Iron Curtain on an espionage mission. As the plot unfolds, he might be drawn into a tangled web of intrigue before being captured, imprisoned and interrogated. During his interrogation, as the prospect of escape fades to the distance, he might well find himself retreating to a space inside his head in order to avoid giving away any crucial information to the enemy.
Any similarity with plots of old TV shows and /or films is deliberate, because the aim of this project is to record theme tunes and incidental music for films and TV shows which exist in a parallel universe (or something).
‘One of our agents is missing’ is available on Spotify, i-tunes and various other sites, but a ‘free’ download (dependent on a small donation to a nominated charity) is available at the Bandcamp link above.
If any Afterworder fancies writing a review of the album, please drop me a PM and I’ll send you a hard copy.
