To celebrate its release on vinyl, for the first time ever, Fire Records present a screening of Richard Linklater's adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel of the same name–A SCANNER DARKLY, with a musical demonstration and Q&A by composer Graham Reynolds.

A frequent collaborator of Linklater, Graham will be working with Richard Linklater once again for his upcoming film 'Last Flag Flying'. Alongside the film and Q&A, Fire Records will set up a pop-up shop on the night selling copies of the A SCANNER DARKLY record, as well as the BLUE VELVET soundtrack.

In the post Breaking Bad world, we are all experts on blue meth, megalomania, paranoia and the various side effects of drug culture. But it wasn’t always that way.

Back in 2006, Richard Linklater’s film adaptation of Philip K Dick’s sci-fi novel A Scanner Darkly was greeted with suspicion. No one had done justice to the “master” (Bladerunner, Minority Report, Total Recall, The Adjustment Bureau had or have all met with mixed reviews).

And, movies attempting to conjure up the effects of drugs were met with derision from the stoned cognoscenti. How could a story of dependence on Substance D (“Death” for short) be created with multi-million dollar stars in the frame anyway?

Linklater had a plan; He’d use rotoscoping (an effect that falls somewhere between Kiki Picasso’s sketches brought to life and Disney on ‘ludes). The celebrities would be shrouded in mystery, in fact Keanu Reeves’ skin suit would make him almost invisible at times, a mumbling wreck swaying centre stage.
