Why do Ryan and Brandice Almost Get into a Verbal Shootout over Daniel Efram's (The Steve Keene Art Book, Manager of The Apples in stereo) Choice of the Grosse Pointe Blank Soundtrack (1997)?

Photographer / Band Manager / and Producer of the Steve Keene Art Book, Daniel Efram joins Ryan and Brandice this week to talk about George Armitage's 1997 film, Grosse Pointe Blank and it's very Joe Strummer infused soundtrack. Even though the film was enjoyed by all, there are some very differing opinions on the use of music in the film. (none of the differing opinions are about the awesomness of Joe Strummer).

We Discuss:

  • How the music goes nostalgic without being too on the nose (or is it?)
  • The laughably bad trailer for the movie back in 1997
  • The sneaky success of the soundtrack
  • The Steve Keene Artbook (buy it! link below!)
  • A funny story about Robert Schneider from Apples in stereo playing on The Colbert Report episode, Countdown to Guitarmageddon

Ryan has a degree in Film Studies, and he’s a musician. So, Soundtrack Your Life is the perfect intersection of his two main passions. Plus, he’s an avid music fan—hunting down rare songs from his favorite bands has familiarized him with many obscure soundtracks over the years. It's been so gratifying for him to hear fellow film and music enthusiasts share their stories of why they love soundtracks!
