I think that there are two MO B-sides that could be related to the Killing Fields: Bones from the To France 12" and The Trap from the Pictures in the Dark 12". These two songs sound like they fit with the mood of some of the songs on the soundtrack, like Blood Sucking or Worksite. Does anybody know if they are outtakes or if Mike just wrote them as B-Sides?

Bones may well be from The Killing Fields. I suspect that The Trap is a later one. Legend, which of course accompanies The Trap on that 12", was written with the 1985 Ridley Scott film Legend in mind. My feeling is that The Trap was probably also intended for that film.

I think The Trap is wonderful.... who else could have composed this? A hidden masterpiece. He does threatening very well (whether he means to or not!;) and should work it in when he can if you ask me! (You didn't, so I told you anyway.) And I've always had Bones down as a KF outtake personally.

Presumably The Killing Fields film had more music than the 36 minutes that appeared on the soundtrack album, so it's possible there is up to an hour of music not released except on the film itself.

The darkroom music from the film is one section that stands out as something that could have been on "The Killing Fields" soundtrack release.

Flash and gleam among the oak-trees,
Laugh and leap into the valley."

Legend is a strange one - 1:15 of a pretty, mock medieval tune which sounds a bit corny at first until the guitar joins in, a silence, then another minute of one of Mike's most beautiful guitar melodies ever - a beautifully yearning piece that you wish would go on but unfortunately ends too soon...
I've often thought that the second guitar melody would make a wonderful basis for a longer piece - similar to the chord progression motif in Incantations. Maybe something for the new 3 part long composition!!
