JOYRIDE "a shitty fucking taste of music"

Written by Emiel Efdee on Sat, 28 Feb 1998 23:39:23 +0100.

My VCR-repairman fixed my video player today (after looking at it for one month...) so tonight I rented a tape with the motion picture "JOYRIDE" on it. And well... after watching it I can understand why it went straight to video over here. I've seen worse and I've seen better. Acting and directing is OK but the story just isn't that good... But hell, that wasn't the reason why I picked it up. Its the music...

There are a lot more bits and pieces of the 4AD history in this picture than IWR could fit on one soundtrack cd.

These tracks were listed at the end of the closing titles:

Lush - Light From A Dead Star

Spirea X - Chlorine Dream

Lush - Desire Lines

Tarnation - Game of Broken Hearts

This Mortal Coil - Acid, Bitter & Sad

Paladins - Years Since Yesterday

Pale Saints - A Thousand Stars Burst Open

This Mortal Coil - Meniscus

Baked Beans - Unbearable Lightness Of Bean

Baked Beans - Human Bean

Michael Brook - Breakdown

Lush - Runaway

Oliver Lieb - Subsonic Interferences

This Mortal Coil - Loose Joints

This Mortal Coil - Dreams Like Water

Scheer - Cannon

This Mortal Coil - Ivy And Need

Pieter Nooten & Michael Brook - Finally II

Colourbox - Looks Like We're Shy On Horse

Pale Saints - King Fade

Swallow - Head In A Cave

Swallow - Cherry Stars Collide -> At this point in the movie the killer-woman shouts: "You changed the tires and you've got a shitty fucking taste of music... Shut that thing up! (talking about the car radio) Get on your knees!" And then the two guys were 'killed'...

Pieter Nooten & Michael Brook - Instrumental

Dif Juz - No Motion

His Name Is Alive - Home Last One

So the two cd-tracks 'This Mortal Coil - Something Borrowed' and 'Colourbox - Shoot Out' are not mentioned.

It's "4AD-soundtrack-weekend" over here cause tomorrow I'm going to rent 'Albino Alligator'...
