Tribute to Repo Man / Various
American Laundromat Records had a blast working on a tribute to one of their favorite flicks of all time - the 1984 cult classic "Repo Man" written & directed by Alex Cox and featuring Harry Dean Stanton and Emilio Estevez. The original soundtrack celebrated the southern California punk movement of the late 70's/early 80's with bands Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, the Plugz, and Iggy Pop. American Laundromat Records recruited an outstanding group of artists to cover these now-classic punk tracks, including; Those Darlins, Matthew Sweet, Amanda Palmer, Mike Watt, the Tellers, Black Francis, Weekend, Polar Bear Club, Moses Coltrane, New York Rivals, and the Suicide Dolls. The 6-panel CD Eco-Wallet features original illustrations by revered rock-poster designer Lonny Unitus (Melvins, Decemberists, Willie Nelson), and includes full production/player credits and some great elements inspired from the original film. This one is a winner and highly recommended for fans of the film, classic punk, or any of the artists contributing. 5 Stars!!!
