The Apocalypse End

In honor of Veteran's Day, 
the courageous men and women that have fought in past and present wars 
and those that might fight in (hopefully never to come) future wars, 
RFW respectfully rewinds to 
The Apocalypse End.

This remixed update of  a show which was originally posted on 
RFW on October 5, 2006 is a set I have been perfecting since a spontaneous 
WBCN, Boston overnight session in 1979.

The Doors
The Clash 
The Stooges 
The New York Dolls
Jimi Hendrix
John Lennon
Patrick Gleeson 
Richard Beggs
Bernard L. Krause 
Mickey Hart
Airto Moriera
Martin Sheen
Robert Duvall
Marlon Brando 
and an incredibly talented supporting cast of musicians, actors, editors and recordists. 

"the horror"


* The following is an excerpt from the the original post - the words still ring true.

Apocalypse Now almost cost director Francis Ford Coppola his life! It gave to the world a night-fever look at the underbelly of the Vietnam War and burned phrases like "terminate with extreme prejudice" and "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" into our collective brain. 

It's OST is one of the best examples of the marriage of music and cinema. Constructed by Coppola and his father Carmine, the use of "The End" is so effectively intertwined with the ominous sound of Patrick Gleeson's moog helicopters in the distance that it never fails to invoke chills and visions of the ravaged fields of Vietnam under heavy attack - the flames, the smoke, the sounds and Jim Morrison's dark poetry all synchronized together by them like master-magicians. 
Francis, I'm still stunned and amazed.

If it's been years or if by any chance you've never seen Apocalypse Now, Apocalypse Now Redux or Hearts Of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse, the equally compelling documentary by Eleanor Coppola , I recommend that you make it a point to put it on your list.
