In Spring 2011 Peggy Sue was invited to perform a live soundtrack to a film at a temporary cinema in Hackney, East London. The band chose Kenneth Anger's 1963 cult classic Scorpio Rising mostly because of its ground-breaking Rock & Roll/Doo Wop soundtrack. With no dialogue or captions, Anger was one of the first to use pop music to harness and alter the meaning of his images. Scorpio Rising is like a glorious 30-minute music video long before its time. On July 1, after many long hours perfecting the art of playing along to the film without getting distracted by the leather and the mustard, Peggy Sue played 12 new arrangements of the massive pop hits that appear on Anger's original soundtrack. It was without a doubt one of the most fun and nerve racking 30 minutes of their career, so they stole away to the studio over the next six months and recorded their versions of the songs.

This CD is a limited-edition run of only 200 and every copy comes autographed by all three band members.
