Plus, there’s a new behind-the-scenes video featuring Little Jimmy Urine and Akira Yamaoka wearing a lot of black and discussing the creation of the soundtrack for the upcoming hack and slash title from Grasshopper Manufacture and Suda51.
What is it with 2012 and Atari Teenage Riot tracks showing up in game-related stuff? First there was the recent PS Vita campaign using their Is This Hyperreal track “Black Flags,” and now Lollipop Chainsaw is using the noise act’s song “Speed” from 60 Second Wipeout. If you follow the group in any capacity, then you know precisely how off-message from their vigorously anti-corporatist stance this is. So… weird, right? Also, if I’m wondering out loud, why not use the far superior “Too Dead For Me” or “No Success?” I love “Speed” and one of the most pleasant revelations I’ve had recently was catching Wild At Heart and discovering the guitar riff sample for the track was from a Powermad song used in Lynch’s film.
What I’m saying is, I really have strong opinions about and interest in ATR.
Anyway, the rest of the licensed tracks here are are fairly eclectic mix, and if they come bundled with composer Akira Yamaoka’s score, I could see myself picking this up day one. Well, downloading. I don’t want any more CDs in my house.
