You may be asking yourself, “Who the heck is ‘Mutant’?”  Valid question, they have just come out of the shadows but they have been in the pop culture scene for years.  Mutant was formed by members of the pop culture entity known as Mondo.  After that company was bought out and changes were made, these folks were left on the sidelines.  THANKFULLY they have joined forces once again and are ready to take every last penny from fans of physical media.  Oh… don’t doubt us.  They already have a bunch of highly desirable goods for sale on their site and our wallet is BEGGING for us to S L O W D O W N with the recent purchases we’ve made there.  Here is some info about the crew at Mutant from their ‘About’ section on their OFFICIAL WEBSITE.

“MUTANT began as a daily therapy session – a video chat between a few ex-employees of the same company, one they helped to build but never owned. The call soon evolved into a space to dream about our future.

Luckily for us, others were also dreaming about our future: the wonderful folks at SpectreVision. Together, we developed a shared vision, and MUTANT began to take form.

But it wasn’t just SpectreVision. The support from artists and the poster and vinyl collecting communities lifted us and championed us, and we genuinely don’t know what we would’ve done without you.

Our mission is unchanged: to make posters, records, toys, and more for the culture that we love, with the best artists in the world. To celebrate the served and under served areas of pop culture, and to always be a reminder that physical media is not dead.

This is the beginning. We have exciting plans and dreams for the future, and we hope you’ll stick with us. We’ve missed you. Thank you for believing in us.”

As you may or may not know by now, we are VERY addicted to colored vinyl….. VERY.  Well, as we mentioned, Mutant is going to be a major black hole for our wallet and we are starting it off with their exclusive “WONKA: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.”  Here is a look at this tasty offering.

Mutant, in partnership with WaterTower Music, are proud to present…

The original motion picture soundtrack to Paul King’s 2023 film Wonka, with delectable original music performed by Timothée Chalamet in the title role, along with the movie’s phenomenal ensemble cast, including Hugh Grant, Calah Lane and Keegan-Michael Key, and many others. The score features all-new music from acclaimed composer Joby Talbot and songwriter Neil Hannon.

“Right from the start I knew I wanted Wonka to be a companion piece to the 1971 movie,” says co-writer and director Paul King “for which Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse wrote such extraordinary, enduring songs as Oompa Loompa and, of course, Pure Imagination. Our movie is set 25 years before theirs, in the late 1940s instead of the early 1970s, and I wanted new songs that could capture the spirit of their writing, as well as a flavor of our setting – the golden age of the Hollywood musical.

Composer Joby Talbot says: “Paul King is a director who puts music front and center. I’m grateful that he gave me so much room to really explore the musical possibilities of the beautiful and exciting world he created.”

Songwriter Neil Hannon says: “To be allowed to stir some of my own imaginative ingredients into Paul’s fantastical recipe is one of the honours of my life. To get to work with my old friend and collaborator Joby Talbot again was a joy, and reminded me of what a genius he is. And for my humble songs to share the stage with two Newley-Bricusse classics I grew up adoring is something I could only have dreamt about. But then every good thing in this world started with a dream!”
