Why Did Kevin Smith's Clerks (1994) Seem Like a Documentary to Sean Faust?

Musician and cat lover, Sean Faust, joins Ryan to discuss the soundtrack to Kevin Smith's directorial debut, Clerks. Being a New Jersey native, Sean has a deeper connection to the film than the average movie fan. He has also performed on a Christmas album with Brian O'Halloran and Scott Schiaffo's Wandering Wannabes. Ryan and Sean talk about how this small budget indie-film launched Kevin Smith's career and birthed the View Askewniverse, as well as 2 sequels and an animated series for Clerks.

Sean will be taking the sales of his single "Gin Asylum" to help pay off medical bills for cat owners in need. You can find "Gin Asylum" on all your music purchasing platforms and at this website:
