27 – Bring Me the Head of Paul McCartney

We’ve Come Together for another episode! Barney joins us as we talk music, movies, murder and more. There’s probably a pitch somewhere in there too.

Here’s some stuff for you:

  • The photo at the top is from ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip’, a book by photographer Robert Landau. The book includes a series of photos and stories of the hand-painted¬†posters that scattered Los Angeles in the 60s, 70s and 80s – and the people who made them.

  • Here’s a link to the “Official Soundtrack”, the playlist I made as I was working on my pitch. The majority of the songs were released in 1969, with a few out in earlier years.
  • In a deleted scene, we talked about The Grey Album, a remix album by Producer Dangermouse. In his 20xx project, he mixed together tracks from The Beatle’s White Album and Jay-Z’s Black Album
    • Barney also mentioned The Double Black Album, which is a mix of Jay-Z and Metallica’s Black Albums.
    • Prince also has an album called The Black Album. There’s always time to go Triple Black…
  • Here’s a list of films recommended throughout the episode – some of them might have been cut out, but here’s the full list anyway:
    • Dazed & Confused
    • American Graffiti
    • Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
    • After Hours
    • The Warriors

  • The Beatles: Eight Days a Week is a documentary directed by Ron Howard. Featuring new interviews with Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr as well as unseen archive footage, the film details the early years of the Fab Four’s impact on American society. The film only has limited release in cinemas, but is due for home release on DVD and Blu-Ray on November 21st.

That’s all I’ve got for this week. Thanks again to Barney for coming in – check out his blog, The¬†Artful Heffalump. Also, feel free to check out this short film Barney and I made together in 2012:

Next week, we’re probably doing something for Black History Month. Stay tuned!
