The Soundtrack To My Life is Out Of Print and is Going For $200 on eBay.

Up first tonight is the rest of the soundtrack to Salvation, minus New Order’s “Touched By The Hand Of God” because you should already have that song if you’re visiting my blog. I don’t know much about any of these bands, so don’t expect a lot of information from me.

Jumpin’ Jesus
You Can’t Blackmail Jesus
I know not who Jumpin’ Jesus is. Any information would be appreciated. This a very fucked-up country tune.

Cabaret Voltaire
Twanky Panky
Jesus Saves
The best known band on the Salvation soundtrack next to New Order. I know people that still love these guys to death but I’ve never been much of a fan. I’m fairly certain that these two songs were never released on any album by the group though.

Play The Beat
Destroy All Evil
Chick with a good voice, don’t know much about her also. She kind of has a Toyah Wilcox thing going on, but not as operatic or annoying.

The Hood
Salvation! Have You Said Your Prayers Today
Another one I have no idea about. Not too bad though.

Arthur Baker
Come On
You might not have heard of Arthur Baker, but if you like 80s dance music you probably have a record he produced. He worked with New Order and Afrika Bambaataa. He also did remix work for Cyndi Lauper and other 80s artists.

And as promised here is the rest of the soundtrack to Dudes. Okay, well it’s not all of it. I didn’t include Steve Vai’s version of Amazing Grace because it’s on one of his own CDs. I also didn’t include the songs by W.A.S.P. and Keel for the same reasons (that and the fact that the song by Keel sucks ass). I only wanted to share the more unusual and hard-to-find tracks. I hope this movie is put out on DVD someday, I remember liking it when I was a kid and with a soundtrack as batshit crazy as this one it can’t be all bad.

Simon Steele & The Claw
Vengeance Is Mine
This is a retarded song. The only thing more retarded than the song itself is the name of the duo credited with it. Simon Steele? Who the fuck is that? Is that like the brother of Remington Steele or something? And The Claw? Well, we all know who that is.

Legal Weapon
Time Forgot You
Another awful band name, but not that bad a song. Kind of a country-tinged 80s rocker (but in a good way). The very end of this skips a bit, I tried to clean it up the best I could but it’s still a little noticeable.

The Little Kings
Lost Highway
Sounds like Fear + The Vandals + Dead Kennedys but not as good as any of them (well, better than Fear’s second LP, but then again so is a swift punch to the taint). It’s actually a pretty damn good song and I’m surprised I haven’t heard of these guys before. The vocals on this tune are just amazing.

Charles Bernstein & Co.
The Dudes Showdown
I’m almost 99% certain that this Charles Bernstein is not the same Charles Bernstein who is a professor and lauded language poet. If it is then holy shit is that dude versatile. This is a blues/country instrumental that most likely played during the film’s conclusion. Good music to listen to if you’re ever caught in a duel in the desert and are all out of Ennio Morricone.

    now…hold on a moment.
    i love you, your blog, and this post….etc….But Toyah Wilcox is NOT annoying 🙁

    Or…well, okej, yes she is, but in a way that reeks of awesome.
    that is all.
    i’m weird that way 😛

    moving on…goddamn, you always unearth such awesome things. I’m really going to have to check out Dominique some more, because I’m liking what I’m hearing, and intrigued.

    Oh, I love Toyah Wilcox and I wanna have her babies, but she can be kind of annoying. Listen to The Helium Song if you don’t believe.

  3. Uncle Mike says:

    Love your blog and I hope mine will be half as good as yours one day. Would you consider adding me to your links?

    I’ve had you linked to mine for a while now. Thanks!

    Hahahha I knowZ, point taken…

    By the way, and entirely unrelated….If you haven’t heard of the Hoodoo Gurus, you really should explore them and possibly scrounge around for some to put up here.

    They were an Australian group of somewhat indefinable genre. Rather funky, rather pop…Rather odd.

    This song should be enough to make ANYONE, and I mean, ANYONE believe. 😛

    First off, thanks for all the gleefully freaky tunes in this post.

    Charles Bernstein the poet actually is pretty versatile:

    …but you’re right — the Charles Bernstein from Dudes is a different guy:

  9. John Hood. says:

    Wow! Yeah, that The Hood track is indeed me: John Hood.

    (Thanks AB!)

    And I'm delighted to find it posted.

    In fact, till right now I never even had an MP3 of the song!

    So if no one minds, I'll post this, save this, and send this around.

    Nice to find Salvation!
