This is one rockin' mo-fo of a judeo-christian funk soundtrack, with the inevitable biblical message for the target audience. If you wanted to find some breaks to sample for your drum'n'bass project,you could do a lot worse than delving into this daft movie designed to appeal to the American christian demographic, also know as the moral majority.The ones who weren't allowed to watch 'Dirty Harry',which had an equally groovy soundtrack. Naturally they couldn't get Clint Eastwood to sign up for this one, so they had to make do with god fearin' housewives favourite, Mr Pat Boone.Let's just say, he didn't win the oscar that year.
Its a kind of 'Angels With Dirty Faces'remake,via 'West Side Story', with a whitemans Blaxsploitation angle......I guess,because I've never seen it,and don't particularly want to.It looks shit.
However, among the rehashed versions of Ralph Carmichael and the Young People numbers, there's some smokin' skin work by the session musicians. The naff criminal fringe beat talk as lyrics in "Rumble" is worth the admission price all of itself.
I'm still waiting for that David Koresh musical,which could use adapted versions of some of these tunes? I can just visualize the Koresh character in ballet tights, doing some contemporary dance moves to "Rumble" brandishing an automatic weapon.
I think that could be popular. A new 'Springtime for Hitler'....anyone interested in providing finance? Just five grand for 200% of the profits.All donations accepted with the same terms.
