At first I thought the "Skinned" song would be good for someone like Rob Zombie, but it's too happy/upbeat for Zombie.  If you hear it you'll understand why it would be more of a Tarantino type song.  It even has a kazoo solo in it.

Quentin used Tennessee Stud by Johnny Cash in Jackie Brown.  I was all like, "why would Ordell be listening to Johnny Cash?", but it's a brilliant song.  I'm in favour of using any Johnny Cash song, and almost any Bob Dylan song.

Tennessee Stud is my favorite song from Jackie Brown. These days Johnny Cash is the only one I listen to(I don't know why) and I really could imagine his songs in Quentin's movies.

I have had so many Johnny Cash CDs/tapes over the years, I can't imagine life without him.

Johnny Cash's Soundgarden cover would be indeed a perfect song for a QT movie. In fact, every Johnny Cash song would be perfect in QT movie.

I have too agree with this one. I can see soo many Johnny Cash songs, just vibing with QT's atmosphere. I also like the Cramps for Quentin also..

Ohhh and a movie! They are long due for one. Maybe "The Third Revelation" will write one. He (The Third Revelation) is a very young talented writer, they say he will be the next Paul Thomas Anderson.....well maybe not that good, but pretty fucking good.

Just imagine Queens in '74 - the misfits who paved the way for the Brittish invasion and the band who was never acknowledge for their entire career for this! And the story between Joey and Johnny and Linda! And the incident with Phil Specter when recording "End Of The Century"! And Dee Dee Ramone hocking Joey's TV to buy hash!

Oh, yeah - I know my Ramones.

Joey Ramone's last song. He heard this in his deathbed in New York.

I was at an aftershow party for The Killers the other night and they had this really querky band playing called The Good The Bad. They were amazing live, but the thing that hit me the most was how much they sounded like a Tarantino soundtrack.

Anyway, a bit later on I was chatting to their manager and he informed me that they're in the running for a Tarantino soundtrack - apparently QT has them in his top 3 for some upcoming film soundtrack. Judging by the manager's swagger, I'd say that it's all BS.  But I thought you might be interested anyway because most Tarantino fans will probably think that they sound great and they're pretty well connected (so you never know how, it may happen).

Here's their myspace page:

Maybe I have a limited imagination but I can't really imagine this in a Quentin Tarantino movie. A Robert Rodriguez flick maybe, but not QT. It's just really loud surf music.

I'm all for anything by J.J. Cale to be in a QT flim.

His version of Cocaine would be awesome (Clapton even admitted Cale's version is better) and in my opinion the song After Midnight would totally have fit into Death Proof.

Shameless plug. My band does surf - soul - spy- spaghetti western instrumental music inspired by Quentin's movies.

Check out the new CD at:
