V.A. Hard Core Logo OST

So, two years after the movie and the tribute album (see here), the Hard Core Logo camp finally got around to releasing the songs we heard and saw, imperfectly mimed, in the film. In these versions, a grizzled rock band named Swamp Dog in collaboration with Headstones lead singer Hugh Dillon (who plays singer Joe Dick in the film) take novelist Michael Turner's lyrics and rock the hell out of them. Their covers, Dead Boys, Young Canadians, along with the non-HCL songs by Teenage Head, The Ramones and Chris Spedding pretty much define the film's idea of punk.

More so than the material from tribute album, these songs represent the scuzzy heart of the film, which one of the best faux-punk movies since Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains, which can't be too far away now...

  1. Great stuff!

    I loved this movie when it came out. Watched it again recently and I think it still holds up.

    For a fictional band, they do one of the better covers of Sonic Reducer I've heard.

    I gotta watch it again (my VHS copy is languishing in the basement now...)
