Welcome to my final entry (on the final day) in the massive group effort Film [Soundtrack] Festival! From November 1-14, we’ve covered all sorts of movie soundtracks. There was surely lots for everybody! Huge thanks to Bruce at THE VINYL CONNECTION for this fantastic group post idea! COMMUNITY!

 Check out THIS PAGE for all the entries.

 

And now we come to my final entry in the excellent Festival [Soundtrack] Festival. Can I just say, again, what a pleasure it has been to go through all of these soundtracks for this series? I hope you’ve all been reading ALL of the excellent entries in this series. And what a fantastic idea Bruce at Vinylconnection had for this group series! Well done, Bruce!

Folks, I’ve saved the best for last. I cannot even begin to calculate my love for this soundtrack (or this film). It is essential. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200 until you have seen this film. Fuck the sequels, the first one is the only one that matters. WHAT A FILM! WHAT A SOUNDTRACK!

Hugh Dillon (of Headstones) and Swamp Baby are our band, and they rock us through the Hard Core Logo tunes from the film. If anyone’s looking to do a tribute night, I can sing every word on this disc…

We blast, off the top, through a series of absolute classics…Who The Hell Do You Think You Are, Rock ’n’ Roll Is Fat And Ugly, and Something’s Gonna Die Tonight are all pure punk classic awesomeness.OMG. Holy shit. What a 1-2-3 punch combination!

Blue Tattoo brings it down a bit, but only for the most wrenching slower tune a punk band could ever offer up. Hot damn! And then we’re right back into the energy soup with their cover of the Deadboys’ Sonic Reducer. Fucking glorious. And throw in Edmonton Block Heater too? Hahahahahahaha this disc is so good already it isn’t fair to anyone else.

China White (Ten Buck Fuck) is another slower one with absolutely harrowing lyrics. Somehow playing hard and fast isn’t as creepy as stuff like this. So tuneful! One Foot In The Gutter is another sweet, Ramones-ish punk blast built to destroy bars across this land. Hawaii is high energy surf country weirdness that still perfectly works.

And now we go to other bands’ work. Teenage Head’s Bonerack is pure classic. Not to mention the Ramones’ Touring. I mean, the fucking RAMONES! How am I still standing? One more to go… Chris Spedding’s live rendition of Wild Wild Women is more straight up punker rockin’ with a slight country twang. GODDAMN.

In Sum:

I can’t even put it into words. I purely simply love this disc. Love love love love love love love love love love. LOVE. If ever there was a CD that I were to hold up and say I love it unreservedly, this would be one of them for sure. Get you some!

And THAT, folks, is how you end a film soundtrack series. With a fucking punker bomb! YES! Thanks heaps, Bruce! Peace out!

  1. I was wondering how long it would take you to whip that one out.
