Beyond John Hughes: Adam Horovitz in Lost Angels

Beyond John Hughes: Adam Horovitz in Lost Angels | Beastie Boys | Scoop.it

The 1989 cult classic film Lost Angels, starring Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz in his film debut, lingers long in the memory with the hazy glow of the teenage crush it was (peak AD ROCK!) the real obscurity of the film for a great many years (taped off TV, stolen from video stores, or impossible to find, period) and the special nostalgia that time brings for you if you were young enough to really care about “Chino” for real. A rewatch proves you weren’t wrong to love it.

Mt Somers is the home of one of New Zealand's most experienced record makers, Peter King. For the past 30 years he has produced his unique lathe-cut records for artists ranging from small garage bands to some of the world's biggest artists. One of his biggest record orders came in the 1980s when an American record executive heard King made records: "[They] said, 'Could you please make a whole big pile of records for the Beastie Boys?' and I said, 'Yeah, that's fine, let's get into it'," says King.
