  • Group-related, whatever, I don't know...

    1. Which other artists, labels or countries should be included in the connection-lists? I watched the film several times and I hope that I found most of the mentioned artists. If there's anything left, tell me!

    2. Feel free to crosspost your personal journal entries to this group. Tell us about music you love, hate or just want to talk about.

    (Yeah yeah, the cool and groovy group support thread!!!)

    Radiohead?

    Where is Radiohead mentioned in the book or in the movie, if anyone cares to remind me?

    Lou Reed

    I'm sure there's a part where he described his one worker and said he had a Lou Reed t-shirt on.

    Have a look, there is a Radiohead-poster at one of the walls inside the movie version's record shop back room. The same with Pavement, more obvious in the appartment next to the door.

    I've got The Velvet Underground in the list, but I'll add Lou Reed to be absolutely correct ;)

  • Sir Douglas Quintet

    I forget, off the top of my head, in which scene "Mendocino" is playing... pretty sure it's when Barry joins the band, anyway, the song is one of the all-time greats, and to leave it off the connections list is, to my mind, a greater travesty than "I Just Called To Say I Love You."

  • add

    add the pixies.

  • Labels

    Well, when it comes to labels, obviously, Stax Volt, Chess and Motown. Though I'm not sure AudioScrobbler will know about them. And while it isn't mentioned in the book, I suspect Verve would pass a Championship Vinyl review - for Django Reinhardt at least.

    Al Green - for (Sha La La) Make Me Happy, and Al Green Explores Your Mind generally

  • Added them. But there's only a label called Stax, not Stax Volt. Hope that's okay.
    (I wonder how I could have forgotten lovely Aretha...)

  • another thought

    Bruce Springsteen features prominently in the movie - though I never much cared for that, and I'm not sure how the team at Championship Vinyl (book version) would feel about 'The Boss' - I suspect they'd like his first albums, but then not.

  • Country Music

    I'm not a fan, particularly, but I suspect...

    Johnny Cash
    Willie Nelson

    would pass muster.

    Or should we restrict ourselves to artists actually mentioned (favorably) in the book or movie?

  • Yes, I'm trying to restrict on the artists mentioned in either the novel or the movie with only a few exceptions. Otherwise, it would blow up the list.

    Thanks for these hints. Again... I don't know what was in my mind forgetting Bruce "The Boss / Nebraska" Springsteen...

    (Johnny Cash is already on the list.)

  • The Jesus & Mary Chain, and Echo & the Bunnymen.
    JMC both the movie & book. Echo, I know movie, but can't remember if they're in the book, and can't find my copy right now.

  • Also Massive Attack, and Solomon Burke.

    No problem.

    Actually he's mentioned quite a bit in the book also. Just reread it recently. Rob mentions at one point that he'd like his life to be a Springsteen song.

  • I caught the following in the movie:
    the Minutemen (album cover)
    Frank Zappa (album cover)
    Captain Beefheart (album cover)
    Echo & the Bunnymen (customer comes in looking for the new album)
    Stiff Little Fingers (recommended to a customer)

    I don't know if some of those are too specific though.

    I swear I'll give it back tomorrow, but for now I think that I'll just borrow all the chords from this song and all the words from another song I heard yesterday.
