A little bit of porn history for you. Back in the days before being able to access extreme German BDSM spank films in the privacy of your own home at the click of a button, the only way to see X rated features for the larger part of the 1970's was to venture into scummy urban districts such as the infamous 42nd Street in New York hoping you didn't get mugged. Upon venturing into an adult theater with a bunch of other lowlifes hopped up on crack, causing violence and offering blowjobs for money (or for free) in the aisles, you would see films like Teenage Twins on the bill.

This film is notable for being the first pornographic film to feature real life incest as stars Brooke Young and Taylor Young get it on, not only with each other but also with their mother and step father as some ridiculous subplot about the Necronomicon unfolds. Teenage Twins is a somewhat typical example of what has been lost in a lot of modern porn, depravity, and films by such prized sleazebag auteurs as Phil Prince (Dr Bizarro, The Taming of Rebecca) and Zebedy Colt (The Farmers Daughters) would be testament to the fact that the 70's was a very disturbed sexual landscape. Just imagine watching this stuff in a theater.

The soundtrack to Teenage Twins is some excellent funk music from composers Alan Hawkshaw, John Fiddy, Duncan Lamont, Steve Grey and Brian Bennett, all who have gone on to other forgotten projects since mainly in the realms of library music. It captures the swinging feel of the era well, and is perhaps the one tasteful saving grace of this truly awful film. Every track is pretty much the same, featuring solid rhythmic bass hooks and sexy guitar licks flavored by nice use of organs, trumpets and keyboards. Standouts include Happy Homecoming, Challenger and Towards Tomorrow, and are all pretty much what you would expect from solid funk music.

Teenage Twins is a more or less forgotten film (mostly for good reason), it's soundtrack even more obscure and buried deeper in the annexes of history. Still if you happen to stumble across it, it manages to be a worthwhile listen.

download it here, you probably won't be finding it for sale anywhere.

I did a partial writeup for my blog and decided I might as well pad it out and submit it here. Enjoy.

Wow, this sounds pretty insane and just a little unethical.

Is Meatplow meant to be suggestive? I have been curious...

I'm fixed upon the movie moreso than the soundtrack.

I see, I thought you may have meant my review was crossing some kind of review code boundary.

It wasn't originally intended to be, but even though my mind is usually in the gutter I didn't realise until at least a year after I signed up that it could be taken that way. I've grown comfortable with it.
