VARIOUS ARTISTS – ” A Tribute To Repo Man Soundtrack “

We had a blast working on a tribute to one of our favorite flicks of all time – the 1984 cult classic “Repo Man” written & directed by Alex Cox and featuring Harry Dean Stanton and Emilio Estevez. The original soundtrack celebrated the southern California punk movement of the late 70’s/early 80’s with bands Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, The Plugz, and Iggy Pop. It’s no surprise that an oddball film by an oddball director would demand a pretty oddball soundtrack. So instead of opting for full-on cod-punk, you have hardcore from Suicidal Tendencies and Black Flag’s mock-jock anthem ‘TV Party’ interspersed with the spanish-style mambo of ‘Hombre Secreto’ and the bluesy semi-instrumentals of ‘Bad Man’ and ‘When the Shit Hits the Fan’. Throw in a cover version of the Modern Lovers‘ ode to ‘Pablo Picasso’ and the sublime instrumental ‘Reel Ten’ and you have the perfect accompaniment to a late night drive. Just remember to keep the doors locked and do not leave your car unattended.

We’ve recruited an outstanding group of artists to cover these now-classic punk tracks, including; Those Darlins, Matthew Sweet, Amanda Palmer, Mike Watt, The Tellers, Black Francis, Weekend, Polar Bear Club, Moses Coltrane, New York Rivals, and The Suicide Dolls. The 6-panel CD Eco-Wallet features original illustrations by revered rock-poster designer Lonny Unitus (Melvins, Decemberists, Willie Nelson), includes full production/player credits, and some great elements inspired from the original film.
