Zombie Strippers

Zombie Strippers, out in some theaters now, is certainly in the running for cult favorite of the year. Watch the trailer.

It features Jenna Jameson. Sure, her plastic surgery got her where she is in the porno biz, and too much of it has resulted in her career jumping the shark, but this film looks tremendous despite/because of these things …

It’s set in Sartre, Nebraska. Pronounced sahr-treeeeee. Excellent

Is it one of the last true grindhouse films?

Okay, why is this in a music blog? Dunno, really. The soundtrack has some appropriate songs from Roxy Saint. But it’s this quote from a NYTimes review that made me think to blog about the movie:

“Though not nearly as clever as it aims to be, the film at least tries. In addition to drawing inspiration from Eugène Ionesco’s ever-relevant absurdist play “Rhinoceros,” it’s full of jabs at the Bush administration and philosophy references — for starters, Jenna Jameson, as the first stripper to succumb to zombification, reads and quotes Nietzsche.”

That bit made me think of a non-soundtrack tune: Nietzsche, by The Dandy Warhols (download mp3). It’s off of Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia, my favorite disc of theirs, and was in the soundtrack for the film Antitrust.

The Hymns and The Flying Burrito Brothers

Yesterday I was introduced by *sixeyes to the band Hymns, and their album Travel in Herds comes out today! Buy it for 12 bucks from their label.

I’ve been letting the Hymns’ MySpace loop constantly. I downloaded three mp3s here to keep me until I can make it to my local record store.

Hymns are a summer-is-a-comin’ band. Roll down the windows even though it’s not quite warm enough yet. Dance around the kitchen in a sunbeam. You know, just what you needed in mid-March.

They’ve been compared to various shades of country rockers, Spin says something like early Wilco. I think it sounds like Spoon and Ha Ha Tonka collaborated to cover Flying Burrito Brothers songs, maybe produced by The Dandy Warhols. Thus, I’d like to take this chance to hype the recent release of the previously unearthed Gram Parsons with the Flying Burrito Brothers Live at the Avalon Ballroom 1969, which we should all buy from fledgling label Amoeba Records (yup, same as the store).

Download some tracks from Amoeba or one from Aquarium Drunkard.

Pitchfork calls this recording of the early FBBs opening for The Grateful Dead, “the rock equivalent of the Jackson Pollock discovered at a flea market, or the first-edition William Faulkner found in the dollar bin at a used book store.” If you need to remember why you need the FBB in your life right now, watch these videos:

Dark End of the Street
Christine’s Tune
Six Days on the Road
