David Lynch on the Eraserhead soundtrack.

Absolutely. When I was working on Eraserhead, we only worked at night. Sometimes I would be building a set or something in the daytime, but on the set, sitting in it or working in it, the so-called “real world” outside disappeared completely. I was in this factory world, and I could imagine the streets and the little diners and hardly anybody there from the little worker houses. There’s a bar, and huge, giant, colossal factories. Huge smokestacks, building smoke, thick atmospheres. And I think, if you turn the lights down and play this [album] in full, a whole world can emerge in your head. And it will be really, really beautiful.
