Diane, I am holding in my hand a link to the Listening Post's damn fine post on the crossover between Twin Peaks and pop. There's the sharp point that shoegaze had its roots as much in Washington State as the Camden Falcon:
"Everyone was watching that show," Franklin says. "Angelo Badalamenti had a huge influence on the shoegaze sound."
Badalamenti's measured scores created sonic environments that artists like Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Massive Attack, Portishead and many more echoed in their own diverse work. There's even an excellent YouTube mash that juxtaposes scenes from the Twin Peaks multiverse with Portishead's "Roads," without missing a lonesome beat. It's not exactly Badalamenti's iconic "Laura Palmer Theme," but it isn't that far off from it either.
