But somehow i'd missed 'Blue Bob' (2002), a collaboration between Lynch and his long-time sound engineer John Neff. An "industrial blues" album, 'Blue Bob' was "based on the pounding machinery of the smokestack industry and the raw amplified birth of rock and roll."
Of course, it's as moody and dark as anything from Lynch-land. The instrumental tracks especially play like a soundtrack. In fact, 'Blue Horse' sounds a lot like it came from 'Lost Highway', and a version of 'Mountains Falling' was used in 'Mulholland Drive'. But it also rocks, like primitive Rammstein.
As Lynch allegedly told Neff: "I want beats like machines, like dogs on PCP -- when they bite down you feel it."
