Good news, everyone. The entire ANTI- catalog of Tom Waits albums will be re-mastered and re-issued on vinyl, which will include a new remixed version of Real Gone. All of this will be available before the holiday season, which will make excellent gifts and stocking stuffers. Tom Waits is one of the coolest people on planet Earth and has released videos, songs, and movies that always evoke emotions, laughs, and fun. I just hope he’s working on a new album and will once again tour, because if you’ve never seen Tom Waits live in concert, you really haven’t lived yet. It looks like all releases will come with 2 LPs that are 180g each along with a digital download card as well, which is just amazing.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Hey guys, Jana here,

screen-shot-2015-10-05-at-8-21-12-am

HBO’s practice of prepping a second season before the first premiered is a tried and true practice for many of the hit drama series of the network, and it’s being put into use for ‘Vinyl‘, now. Vinyl just debuted on February 14 to enough excitement that a second season is a simple decision.

Top 10 Soundtracks We Want To See Released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

say-anything

Many of you might already know that I love listening to movie soundtracks. I always have. Since I was a little tyke who could barely see over a counter, I was infatuated with movie scores and soundtracks, particularly the ‘E.T.‘ original motion picture score and the ‘Beverly Hill Cop‘ soundtrack. From there, my love and passion grew for all types of music. My parents had a pretty good record collection that included all three original ‘Star Wars’ albums, ‘The Wizard of Oz‘, and ‘Star Trek I and II’ to just name a few. Throughout the years, I now have a fun record collection that spans all genres of music from Frank Zappa to Rage Against the Machine, from R.L. Burnside to The Pixies, and so on. Along the way, digging through the dirty stacks of crates at local record shops and estate sales, I became hell bent on having one of the best Soundtrack collections. And over the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to acquire some very sought after albums. But there are still so many soundtracks that have never found their way to vinyl, either commercially or ever really. So here is a list in the hopes that maybe Varèse Sarabande, Mondo, or Death Waltz will consider releasing these albums in the near future.

High-Fidelity1

There are excellent music movies and soundtracks then there is the measure against which all others are measured. ‘High Fidelity‘ is the quintessential or paragon collection that shames all other soundtracks into submission below it.

Hey guys, Jana here,

ghostbustersmarshmallow

 

Find a kid, ask them “Who ya gonna call?” Depending on the answer, you can judge if their parents rock the gig of raising their man-child. If they answer with the obligatory “Ghostbusters!”, then you know these are kids that will go far in life. Every kid needs a solid bedrock of film savviness to draw references from for the rest of their lives. What kind of parent just lets the kids watch the movies without immersing them in all of the gloriousness that encompasses the franchise? In addition to the multitude of zingers and one-liners is the theme song that will stay in the cannon of 80’s pop culture forever.

There is good news and bad news to this. The good news is that AMC is releasing soundtracks for ‘The Walking Dead‘ and ‘Breaking Bad‘ on vinyl. The records will be picture discs and will be limited.

The wait is ALMOST over, folks! We at Boomstick, and I’m sure the rest of the world, have been wondering if/when the 2009 Beatles’ Remastered catalog would see a proper vinyl release, aside from the Record Store Day singles release from last year. The good news is all those classic LPs, from ‘Please Please Me’ all the way down to ‘Let It Be’ will see an official release in North America on November 13th, just in time for the holidays. Available individually or bundled in a limited edition collector’s box set, this will be at the top of many a holiday wish list! Read the rest of this entry »

You know the covers. You’ve seen them millions of times, and they continue to captivate upon every gaze. But what is behind those marvelous covers, encased in voluptuous black wax? Admittedly, we hang our heads in shame for saying this, but there are several albums from the past few decades we’ve seen on record store shelves and in ‘top ten’ lists year after year, but have yet to experience for ourselves. More precisely, we’ve never listened to these records in any shape or form. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s not very often I take the time to promote projects via crowd sourcing, but the world needs more books. It also needs more books about vinyl records and their collectors…

Vinyl record blog Dust & Grooves currently has a Kickstarter campaign going on to fund their first book about vinyl collectors and their amazing collections, and they are getting super close to their goal. Check ’em out and throw a few bucks their way, so this book can get published. Because D&G’s articles are concise, thoughtful, entertaining and quite engaging, it would be a tragic shame to see this project not come to fruition.

Also, follow  D&G on Twitter for progress on their Kickstarter campaign, as well as for future installments of D&G.

Want A Rare Tom Waits Record and Vinyl Player???

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 13th, 2010

The coolest person in the world, “Tom Waits” has been working with New Orleans institution “The Preservation Hall Jazz Band” on the benefit LP preservation which was inspired by an old 78 rpm recording called “Tootie Ma is a Big Fine Thing” which is a Mardi Gras Indian street Chant by Danny Barker.

So the Jazz Band and Tom Waits have been doing their version of this song and will be released as a 78 LP on November 19th.

The B-side contains Waits’ and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s cover of Barker’s “Corrine Died on the Battlefield”

There will only be 504 copies available of this record to purchase.  In addition, since most record players only have the options of 33 and 45, they will be releasing a 78 record player with the record.  Only 100 players will be made for purchase.  The player itself is AWESOME.

The record itself can be purchased for a donation of $50.00 to the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz & Heritage Brass Band.  And the record player + record canbe purchased for a donation of $200.00 to the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz & Heritage Brass Band.

Both packages will be available for purchase in person at the New Orleans Preservation Hall on November 19th at 10:00 a.m. and online on November 20th by clicking HERE.

If you are a Tom Waits fan and a fan of New Orleans music, then try and get this rare gem.  I know I will.

LP Review: ‘Luke Cage Season 2’ Soundtrack!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2018

 

Marvel is certainly on a roll with their content over this past decade with their billion dollar movies and their successful television shows across multiple platforms. One of these shows is called ‘Luke Cage‘, which just debuted its second season on Netflix. Luke Cage was the first black superhero in comic books to be featured as the main protagonist with his name as the title. Cage is an ex-convict who was imprisoned for a crime he did not commit who was experimented on, thus creating his superpowers of strength and unbreakable skin. Once he hones in on these powers, he basically becomes a hero for hire and is one of the coolest characters in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The music or score of any film almost always adds a heightened level of excitement, sadness, horror, or any other emotion to the image on the screen. There is just something great about a good musical score that makes us bond and feel those glorious sentiments with the characters and stories in film. Pixar has done an incredible job of giving us some of the most iconic scores of all time that we still hum and sing on occasion. With all of these added emotions, it’s no pun that a movie about emotions called ‘Inside Out‘ has an incredible score by a fantastic composer named Michael Giacchino.

Michael is no slouch either when it comes to making an orchestra sound alive and full of action. With movies under his belt such as ‘The Incredibles‘, the ‘Star Trek‘ movies, and many other Pixar films, along with recent ‘Jurassic World‘ movies and ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘ – you know the music maestro knows what he’s doing. It’s great to have Mondo release the 45’ single of ‘Inside Out‘ with a couple of its main themes for fans of the film.

Film Review: ‘Tragedy Girls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2017

“Tragedy Girls fits best on a weeknight in October when you’ve already watched the good horror movies leading up to Halloween.”

Tragedy Girls is a movie that you probably don’t know about, haven’t seen ads for, and will have a tough time finding but if it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime and you need to kill 90 minutes? You could do much worse. The film is a solid attempt at satire of high school, social media, and horror movies. It also contains some legitimately dark humor that really shocked me at first because I knew nothing about the film going in. I need to set the plot a bit in order to discuss the movie further.

‘Phish: A Live One’ is Getting the LP Treatment!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

Phish’s first live album called ‘A Live One‘ was released back in 1995, which means this is 22 years old and makes me wish I was still that young again when I first heard this album. It was released on CD and cassette back in 1995, which was a time when vinyl wasn’t really being produced. The album was recorded mostly through Phish’s 1994 tour and is regarded a big fan favorite.

Bob’s Burgers Movie is Coming in 2020!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Move over ‘Simpsons‘, because ‘Bob’s Burgers‘ is making it to the big screen from 20th Century Fox. That’s right, there is going to be a ‘Bob’s Burgers‘ film in theaters, but you’ll have to be patient, because the movie won’t come out until July 17, 2020. We might have flying cars by that time and robot overlords. The animated show has been a hit since 2011 when it first aired on Fox and has developed into a cash cow and is critically acclaimed across the board for its offbeat humor.

Nine Inch Nails Is Back With New EP and Single!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Nine Inch Nails has never really been gone, if you ask me, but they’re back with a new five-song collection release titled ‘Add Violence‘ on Friday, July 21st. Leading the pack of this new release is the upbeat single ‘Less Than‘. You’ll find the video below, it will make you absolutely giddy, or maybe that’s just me. The synthesizers beckon back to the optimism of the ’80’s before being overpowered with some rugged and dirty guitar riffs.

IMDB describes this film as “The continuing adventures of former hitman, John Wick.” I have a feeling that will be changing after seeing this trailer. If you’re anything like me, I’ve been waiting for this clip for as long as I’ve known they were creating a sequel. Keanu can kick ass and I love nothing more than to see that.

I talked with Cary Mansfield, who is the Vice President of Catalog over at Varèse Sarabande. They are releasing FIVE different albums this year for Record Store Day and we go into detail on each release. We also discuss the importance of Record Store Day, how Record companies decide on what to release, and how the whole process works.  It was a fun and lively interview for sure. We even talk about some upcoming releases that will sure knock your socks off, including ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday‘!

Mr. Mansfield has been working for Varèse Sarabande for over 21 years and has seen the uprising of the digital age of media and music, the fall of analog and vinyl, and of course its resurrection over the last few years, as he sheds some light onto the format, along with some really cool and upcoming titles.

Film Review: ‘Mr. Holmes’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 15th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

I’m a huge fan of anything Sherlock Holmes. I’ve read the books, watched the TV series, and own the films. Heck, I even own some of the Sherlock Holmes stories on vinyl. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan. We’ve seen a ton of incarnations of the famous British detective over the years. Recently though, Holmes has become very popular due to the films that starred Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and of course the hit BBC series ‘Sherlock‘ that stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson respectively. The amount of fandom for these projects have even spawned new shows and other films in the past year or so as well. It just seems that we all can’t get enough of Sherlock and those famous suspenseful mysteries.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Complete Series!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 19th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE SERIES

 I remember when the pilot episode for ‘Boardwalk Empire‘ aired on HBO back in 2010, which was directed by Martin Scorsese. After the episode aired, I said to my friends, “that was one of the best pilots to any television show I had ever seen.” They all seemed to agree. What followed was five season of some of the best storytelling set in the prohibition era of America, complete with historical figures and gangsters. It was almost like it was ‘Goodfellas‘, but set in the early 1920s. The series followed Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), who was based on a real guy, who secretly controlled the Boardwalk in Atlantic City and bribed politicians and presidents to make his rise to power much easier.

Comic Con: Dallas Fan Days 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 9th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

cc011

As a fangirl, I love comics and dressing up. I love being someone else for one day and let’s not lie, Comic Con is my mother ship. This weekend was no exception. I spent two days basking the glory and adoration that was formerly Sci-Fi Expo and is now Fan Days 2.0! It’s my family, and walking through the doors of the Irving Convention Center is always like being at home. It is very much like a space ship or the Sandcrawler from ‘Star Wars’, with its four levels, an over powering awning, and yet, when the parking attendant took mine and Taylor’s (lead camera) money, we were excited and ready to get out of the car and start mingling with everyone and see what Fan Days 2015 had to offer. I decided to go ahead and dress up, because hey, who doesn’t like it when press looks like someone else? My costume of choice? Totally obscure and amazing! I was ready to go as Special Agent Dale Cooper, from Twin Peaks. I even brought along a thermos of “Damn fine coffee,” and a bag of donuts. Dead Laura Palmer would be waiting for me at the convention, for sure!

Film Review: ‘Big Hero Six’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Disney’s CG animation department is on a huge winning streak. With the success of ‘Wreck It Ralph‘ and ‘Frozen‘, Disney is back in the animation game after a long absence while Pixar did their thing. Dinsey’s latest animated adventure is called ‘Big Hero 6‘, and is based off an old Marvel Comics title. I can safely say that ‘Big Hero 6‘ is a big winner and continues Disney’s streak of success.

Grand Theft Auto V Soundtrack Dropping December 9!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Grand Theft Auto‘ may have taught a generation how to carjack successfully, it also entertained that generation with the tell-tale squeak of a rocking car and recruited for questionable missions. No matter what was happening on screen, there was always an underlying soundtrack that accompanied every shady deal, theft and murder.

Fan Days 2014: A Look inside The Show!!

Hey everyone! Your favorite multitasking, costumed wunderkind here

XSaFs.St.117

Prepare yourselves, for I have an excellent look back at Dallas Comic Con’s own Fandays, from October 17th-19th. First I would like to apologize for the delay in reporting, but you know, Halloween isn’t just one day. It’s a month long celebration of costumes and shenanigans, as well as my favorite time of year. Dallas Comic Con’s Fandays fell on the third weekend in October this year. The date was perfect for prime costuming parades as it fell so close to Halloween, many costumed attendees were ready for both events.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I’ve been a huge fan of Nick Cave since 1994 when he and The Bad Seeds released their album ‘Let Love In‘. And over the past twenty years, I have purchased his music on vinyl, CD, and digitally. Nick Cave is not only one of the coolest people on the planet and a legendary musician and singer, but he is also a filmmaker who often collaborates with the amazing Warren Ellis.

David Bowie Produces New Album!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 9th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

david-bowie-2013-superpride

David Bowie is a name that brings an instant image to mind. He’s had about a thousand of them and he continues to change his look, his style and his sound. Most men at 67 would be taking it easy, but Bowie is working on new material and prepping for a new album that will add a few new songs peppered with hits that span the length of his astonishing career. The new songs ‘Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)‘ and ‘Tis a Pity She’s a Whore‘ mark the ending of a decade-long period of silence from the androgynous artist.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

CWR001_Mock04

If any of you know me, you would know that I’m a huge fan and advocate of vinyl. I’ve been listening, purchasing, and collecting vinyl for many years and there are no signs of stopping any time soon. Music sounds ten times better on a vinyl album than any CD or MP3 ever could hope to sound. Don’t believe me? Do an experiment yourself and play the same song on the same speakers on vinyl, then on a digital format. You’ll be amazed. Needless to say, I get all giddy when a new record label opens up shop that specifies in releasing new and old music on vinyl. And fortunately for me, a dear friend and writer for this very site has started his own record label after several years of planning. Not only that, the new record label known as Classic Waxxx Records is releasing its first album under its banner. Below is the official press release complete with all the cool info on the limited editions, a sampling of the music, and a link to purchase.

I’ve never hid from you the girl-love I have deep inside me when it comes to beautiful faces, gorgeous bodies or even just their boobs. One person that comes to mind that holds all those qualities, plus makes me wish I were her, is Reese Witherspoon. She’s southern charm in motion. You just know she’s got to make killer sweet tea, right?

One of the best shows in television history is finally getting a Blu-Ray release in glorious high-definition. In addition to that, the Blu-Ray set will be chock full of excellent extras.

Death Waltz Recording Company, the record printer that is famous for re-releasing excellent horror movie soundtracks, has announced they will be releasing two separate soundtracks to David Lynch’s cult series, ‘Twin Peaks‘ and the film companion ‘Fire Walk with Me‘. There is no release date as of yet, but we do know the two releases will be two different colors. I’m completely psyched about this, as ‘Twin Peaks‘ was one of the greatest shows to ever air on television.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Perks of Being A Wallflower’ is hands down one of my favorite films of the year.  I haven’t seen such a genuine coming of age high school movie since the late John Hughes was making his films about being a teenager.  Director and writer Stephen Chbosky hit a home run with  ’The Perks of Being A Wallflower’.  I haven’t fallen in love with characters like this since HBO’s ‘Six Feet Under’ was on television.  I did not want this film to end.

Mondo has only released a handful of soundtracks on vinyl since they first opened online, but this year they are hitting the ground full force with releasing more amazing movie soundtracks on the best quality format to listen to music. So far this year we have had ‘Poltergeist‘, ‘The Deadly Spawn‘, and the recent ‘Drive‘ soundtrack, which sold out in record time in under 30 minutes. And just this past week, they sold out of their newest soundtrack, ‘Oblivion‘, which has an amazing score. The cover artwork is amazing and the sound is even better with their releases. Mondo clearly knows what they’re doing when it comes to art and soundtracks.

Hi, Bryan Here….

universal-studios-home-entertainment-moonrise-kingdom

Wes Anderson is back to the live action format with his new quirky coming of age film, Moonrise Kingdom.  I can always tell a Wes Anderson film from any other films.  The camera angles, the oddball characters, the musical cues with the slow-motion action, and how every character puts their emotions on the frontline makes up the guts and glory of a Wes Anderson film.  Some people might find all this obnoxious, but Moonrise Kingdom, with its two tween stars, everything seems to work flawlessly.

The Polyphonic Spree Does Christmas

It might not yet be Halloween, and there are still a few days left to carve up that jack-o-lantern for the front porch, but The Polyphonic Spree is ready to ring in the Christmas spirit with or without you, with their first full length holiday album, “Holidaydream: Songs of the Holidays, Vol. 1”.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I have to say this preceding review may be partially biased, as I spent a good many months leading up to the album’s release, working on the album art, layout, pressing of vinyl, etc., so needless to say, I’m quite thrilled to see (and hear) the album’s existence.

Every one of the following are so good, it was really difficult to rate them from best to bestest.  Each and every one of these titles hails from the very late 70’s thru the 80’s…how incredibly biased of me.

Tom Waits Delivers New Music Video! No Tour Announcement!
