Fourth of July Freak Out


On this Independence Day, you can do worse than kick back with a beer, watching a cult or trashy movie (I'd suggest Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill, Harley Davidson and the Malboro Man, or Rolling Thunder) and ordering your copy of Jack Shear's psychotronic, post-apocalyptic Americana rpg setting Planet Motherf*cker. Freakout is optional.

Here's a mix of musical moods to get you in the right frame of mind:

"Psychobilly Freakout" by the Reverend Horton Heat:

"White Lightning" by Charles Bernstein: 

"Chase the Devil" The Eagles of Death Metal:

"Comanche" The Revels:

"Too Drunk to..." Nouvelle Vague:

Love the music selection. I might have to do my own soundtrack.

Chris said...

Nice tunes. Haven't heard "Comanche" in forever. A bunch of the others were new to me. "To Drunk..." just cracked me up (can one even be that drunk?). All very cool.

Jack said...

YESSSSS. Pitch perfect!

Great lineup, Trey. I love 'Comanche,' but whenever I hear it I keep expecting someone to bring out The Gimp. Happy Independence Day.

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man...christ that takes me back, Don Johnson and Mickey Rourke!

Good stuff!

I really need to see Harley Davidson and The Marlboro Man again.

Chris: To be sure, Nouvelle Vague's "Too Drunk to Fuck" there is a cover (and an excellent one, taking its own route through the song). The original was by Dead Kennedys, and is a classic of punk rock/hardcore, released in 1981.

I love your music posts Trey. I've bought CDs based on the stuff you post here (Several big band compilation CDs and a Glenn Miller), so I look forward to more.

Cool! Glad to know I've helped you discover some good stuff.
