Currently Playing At The Bijou Of Cool

A Rock and Roll Fable? How about THE Rock and Roll Fable. Michael Pare as the brooding but hunky Cody and Diane Lane as his true love Ellen Aim and Diane has never been more beautiful or William Dafoe more evil. One of the great movie soundtracks of all time as well. These two songs by Fire Inc. (not the greatest name in the world) are just about as perfect as a movie song can get. Epic, soaring and full of real passion.

Get ready for a "rock 'n' roll fable" unlike anything you've seen before in this sexy, gritty thriller starring Hollywood heavyhitters Willem Dafoe, Diane Lane, Amy Madigan, Michael Paré and Rick Moranis. When tempestuous singer Ellen Aim (Diane Lane) is kidnapped by the vicious Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe) and a ruthless gang of motorcycle thugs, it's up to a handsome loner (Michael Paré) to rescue her. With the assistance of a hard-as-nails woman warrior (Amy Madigan) and manager Billy Fish (Rick Moranis), he enters a shocking world of neon-lit streets, fast cars, and killer assassins lurking around every corner. Powered by an intense soundtrack, performed by such greats as The Fixx and The Blasters, this cult classic features songs written by Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and Ry Cooder. It's an all-out attack on the senses that you can't afford to miss!

Shit man , barely 21 back then ...
And the songs blasting on the Walkman
through the hours of training,
( wondering when it would be legit to stop
listening to it )

As for the vinyl, still waiting the ultra
lightweight needle from Audio-Technika

Remember the script behind the record sleeve ?

Cheers and thanks for the reminder
