v/a - half-cocked ost

released 1994

i remember seeing this movie back in the day...and not really thinking all that much of it

it was your typical kids steal a van full of instruments and pretend to be in a band while out on the road kinda deal

but the soundtrack kinda stuck with i hunted it down...and hunted...and hunted....

until i gave up

apparently it just wasn't cool enough to be stocked in any music store within a (insert distance here) radius of where i was living at the time

and i had eventually forgotten about it

but then i was looking through an old issue of ALTERNATIVE PRESS and it was mentioned

and then i remembered that i had been looking for it make a not so long story short...i found it

An absolutely essential 90s indie rock compilation. So many great bands and so many great tracks. I remember my girlfriend and I in high school would play this compilation non stop. It never got old. In fact I think I'll go throw this on my turntable

Odd. I found a 2xLP copy of this at my local record merchant not more than 2 months ago.

The movie was really pretty awful. I remember wanting to kill the Tara Jane band. Anyway, it's notable for having the accidental debut of the post-Nation Of Ulysses/ Cupid Car Club mutant r&b band The Make Up (as The Guill-O-Teens)- here with indie rock journeyman / Slint guy and awesome human Dave Pajo on bass! They play a super sloppy version of Wilson Picket's 'Midnight Hour'. Loved it.

this movie rules what are you guys talkin about

or maybe that's just my intense 90s nostalgia talking

i loved tara, was crushin on her the whole time. the band started out p bad, but they were awesome in the show with the grifters ! i wish the cop hadn't arrested her lol. but of course that was badass.

thx for the soundtrack shiny
