Attack of the Killer Soundtrack - Episode 39

This week we are joined by our special guest co-host Rick Miller - singer/songwriter/guitarist for Southern Culture on the Skids. We talk to Rick about his music and movie influences, all while building our own soundtrack from SCOTS movie-related songs.

And while we realize just how much all our pop culture references seep in, we also discuss... surfing, hot rods, dirt track racing, Mexican horror films very badly dubbed, swinging Swedish stewardesses, Smiley Lewis, punk rock, Val Lewton, drive-in movies, dirty magazines, Ken Cinema, Herschell Gordon Lewis, The Mummy's Hand, Aretha Franklin, Atragon, WRAL, double features, I Married a Monster from Outer Space, he's a bit of a hipster, older people doing folk songs, The Brainiac, too cold to be wearing bikinis, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Dave Edmunds, Bucket of Blood, El Santo, if you're having fun... people will like it, AM/FM, I couldn't open my locker, Mike Judge, from North Carolina to Southern California, B movies, art, Commander Cody, film noir, coffee shops, Dawn of the Dead, Isle of the Dead, his skin color would change, and the cheese factor... it's just like good, Curse of the Cat People, Fats Domino, do the poster first, Tower Records, Ray Charles, avant-garde, hamburger taped to the end of a mannequin arm, a matinee, Sunshine of Your Love, Universal horror, sliced his head like baloney, The War of the Gargantuas, Eddie Cochran, horror that makes you laugh, The Dave Clark Five, Buck Owens, Roger Corman, a super 8 camera, nachos - you gotta have some cheese, David O. Russell, Booker T., the Moon Glow Drive-in and a transistor radio.

"I think people have lost their sense of humor sometimes... and they just don't get it. And I don't mean just being politically correct, I just mean... how to have some fun."
