Armstrong over at Mister 8 has gone back to posting guitar tablature for spy themes, and this week's choice is "Deep Deep Down," Ennio Morricone's unforgettable theme from Danger: Diabolik. Musically inclined spy fans should definitely check it out! I'd say "Deep Deep Down" is a great song to know how to play in a pinch. As proof, Armstrong includes video of a band called Kriminal Hammond Inferno covering the song. It's a really cool performance, but (surprisingly for a group comprised of masked musicians dressed up like various Italian costumed adventurers!) a bit restrained in comparison to the lavish, wild-eyed cover by Faith No More's Mike Patton (with a full orchestra!) that Tim Lucas linked to a few months ago from Video WatchBlog. Armstrong also links to a lengthy and fascinating post on Diabolik and its music over at Stephen Bissette's blog. Bissette includes in his post the notes he made for his appearance in the documentary about the film on Paramount's Diabolik DVD.
