VARIOUS ARTISTS - "Punxploitation! Soundtrack Music From Punk Films, 1977-2010" - Double CD-R


   Punk fiction is a waste of time to me, but punk movies are another thing entirely. The more outlandish, the better. It's a little frustrating to watch punks get typecast over and over as garish, cartoony, moronic, day-glow freaks eating out of shit-encrusted dumpsters, but it's more entertaining than watching stale-ass norms munch on biscotti while discussing their affairs in a Starbucks. Even better, punk soundtracks rule,,,at least when they're good. Some are god-awful, especially when the directors or whoever-the-fuck compiles the music decides that shit like TALKING HEADS or THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS is punk, but sometimes, they're unstoppable and timeless. My favorite is when a band is made up just for the sake of the movie, such as EDGE OF ETIQUETTELOVEDOLLS or THE STAINS.
   This double CD-R comp of killer and not-so-killer punk songs from movies was compiled by notorious local punk Eric Yee and given away for free at a movie night he hosted at Thrillhouse Records in San Francisco. If memory serves me correctly, he showed Tjenare Kungen (sooo good), Sir Drone (if you haven't seen this, just stop everything and change your life for the next hour) and Desperate Teenage Lovedolls ("Hey, thanks for killing my mom!"). Within this comp, you'll find fictional bands, some well-knowns and some obscure foreign burners. Thanks to Eric, Eggplant and Thrillhouse. Enjoy!

If you're a freak about punks in movies or just want an amazing book about that subject, track down Destroy All Movies....one of my favorites.

Hello! I just found your blog and I'm finding it very interesting. Great to have the opportunity to download and listen to your demo scene. The Grumpies and Sopors blew me away! Great tunes.. Anyway if you want, check this band from our ''scene''..it's a punk rock band from Zagreb, Croatia..their name is Ĺ ank?! ( ''a bar'' in Croatian ). They have 3 albums and this is their first from 2010..it's street punk.. ( http://www.mediafire.com/?wx860akw7zxtfp2 ) all the best with your future blogposts and to you! Cheers from Croatia!
