A future award for least sales?

ASCAP honors Angelo Badalamenti

When a man who once promoted a film by standing on random street corners with a cow describes his new project as being “pretty out there,” it pays to listen.

Such was David Lynch’s description of an experimental musical project, dubbed “Thought Gang,” he has brewing with composer Angelo Badalamenti. Prior to taking the stage to honor his longtime collaborator with ASCAP’s Henry Mancini Award at the Bev Hilton on Thursday night, Lynch boldly predicted to Variety, “I think it will win an award for the least albums sold, ever.”

Lynch went on to relate how Badalamenti’s singing voice once caused him to have a hernia. – — Andrew Barker
