Monday Mayhem Spotify Takeover; Eric Bower from Broken Lamps celebrating Tura Satana and Ennio Morricone.
I think the easiest way to describe this Monday Mayhem, in a blanket, easy to digest way is this. Imagine the songs from a Quentin Tarantino movie that has never been released, played by an all-original band led by a guy who paid his dues in the Philly Punk Scene.
Eric Bower of the Broken Lamps put this playlist together as part of our week to honor what would have been Tura Satana's 82nd birthday. As most of you know, Tura was the star of the big daddy of all B’-movie/Sexploitation films ‘Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill’. We honored her legacy by making an officially licensed Tura Satana Coffee.
Eric put this playlist together over the weekend and today we wake to find the passing of Ennio Morricone who scored countless Italian Spaghetti Westerns and was most famous for the soundtrack to ‘The Good, The Bad and the Ugly’. The Italian Spaghetti Westerns are close bedfellows with the Sexploitation genre, both living in the neighborhood of B-Movies.
In light of Ennio's passing, we took the liberty to also add some Ennio Morricone songs as well as some contemporary artists who we influenced by Russ Meyers, Tura Satana, and the B Movie Genre. Hopefully, we created a timeline to show why these movies and scores are not only important on their influence on contemporary rock bands, but they are fun as hell. Either way, it will have people within close earshot saying, ‘What the hell are you listening to?’ And that’s really what it’s all about, right?
