The Soundtrack To My Life. 09/07/2011.

I’ve listened to a lot of albums this week and this is me recommending them all to you.

Phil Phillips’ “Sea Of Love” (2008 ):

The Complete Soundtrack to “Stand By Me” (1986 ):

Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers: “Rare Bird Alert” (2011):

Gavin Bryars: “The Sinking Of The Titanic” (2009):

Leonard Cohen: “The Future” (1992):

Fucked Up: “The Chemistry Of Common Life” (2008):

“Death Proof” (OST) – “Stuntman Mike’s Mix” (2007):

If I’m listening to anything at night, it’s usually a radio show or something old or something spooky.
This week it was all three in the form of “An Evening With Boris Karloff And His Friends” (2011):

Musically, I’ve had a pretty good week.
I also listened to The Arctic Monkeys’ latest album “Suck It And See” but frankly (And I like The Arctic Monkeys), it bored the arse off me and that’s as much of a mention as I’m gonna give it on here.

My favourite music comes from the 50’s and I always have some old records at hand just incase modern music decides to completely disappear all the way up it’s own backside. That said, “The Chemistry Of Common Life” marks the first I’ve heard from Fucked Up. Good name for a band that eh?
I liked it enough and although they don’t sound as fucked up as I thought they would (Iggy Pop), I think I’m probably gonna buy their latest.

Have fun if you track down any of these recommendations and let me know how you get on.

P.S. I only ever had bootleg copy of that Boris Karloff record which was full of static and crackles but it’s been re-released and you can now buy it from Amazon for a few clams.

  1. Where in the world did you get the complete Stand by Me soundtrack w/ the score! I scoured the net and can’t find it anywhere? thanks, Craig.

    • Hi Craig, I honestly can’t remember where I got that. But it’s the only way to hear it.
