Attack of the Killer Soundtrack #24 - Attack of Wes Anderson 2
This week we are joined by two different guest co-hosts - Jonathon A. Mitchell from Nellie Pearl and Shadwick Wilde from Quiet Hollers. Both bands were featured at this year's Wes Fest celebration, so we address the choices for what songs they would cover from one of Wes Anderson's films. Plus we discuss Wes as a director and the subgenre and fanbase he's created over the years. All the while building a soundtrack recorded live by Nellie Pearl and Quiet Hollers, plus a few other songs along the way.
And as we question the punk band touring drinking mischief kind of life, we also mention... the male/female dynamic, crowded in the van, Shelton Williams?, gelled into this Wes Anderson thing, my sister was like hip for a year or so in high school or something, The Royal Tenenbaums, cutting your wrists, Bottle Rocket, those guys don't have to practice, growing as an artist, drummer and bass player jokes, hospitals and McDonalds, bad Hank, aesthetically pleasing, Buck Owens and the Buckaroos, I tried to say I'm sorry, The Grand Budapest Hotel, born with a keytarist in your hand, Zoosk, don't go buy anything... make it all yourself, Elliot Smith, the mustache street wars of 2006, having new songs in your arsenal, Agatha, always some obscure midwestern town, Appalatin, dropped out of high school to do that, a cult...gang...band, do you wanna play in this weird depressing Americana band with me, Oscar and the Picket Line, duel citischship, stepping out of that rich white people perspective zone, sit here stoney-eyed, the only band with drums, if you need a new one just order a pizza, speaking with an fake Australian accent, have a little diabetes, getting girls to come see your band, the drool comes out of both sides and fast power-chord kind of silly stuff.
"How come no one's helping that man!"
