For some people, confronting a house full of ghosts might seem a more benign situation than braving a pack of judgemental housewives, especially in the 1950s, an era haunted by impossible standards for women. Finding herself amongst the snooty wives of academics, Shirley Jackson must often have been the target of their gossip and probably preferred to imagine herself trapped in ‘Hill House’. Jackson reputedly cultivated an interesting, if fearsome, persona – prickly, idiosyncratic, unkempt, contemptuous. She was tolerated in academic circles, being a successful author in her own right.
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the original motion picture soundtrack and score to Her Smell.
Her Smell is a 2018 psychodrama divided into five acts that focuses on the narcissistic and destructive punk icon Becky Something, lead vocalist of the fictional 90’s band, Something She.
