See Hear podcast Episode 10 - Mystery Train

October 20, 2014 @ 5:59 am

See Hear Podcast hits double digits. We’re up to episode 10. A small milestone, but one we’re very happy to have arrived at.

This time around, Tim has picked Jim Jarmusch’s ensemble cast anthology film of 1989, Mystery Train including Steve Buscemi, Nicoletta Brasschi, and Screaming Jay Hawkins. Three stories, one hotel in the one and only Memphis. We discuss whether this actually qualifies as a music film, Memphis the iconic town versus the ordinary Memphis displayed in this film, Elvis versus Carl Perkins, and the nineties independent film movement.

Unfortunately, our beloved Wendi wasn’t available, so those immense shoes were brilliantly filled by Hank Hellman, making his return guest appearance to the show. Tim, Sticky, Hank and myself all had a fun time….but we forgot to sing a rousing chorus of Mystery Train for you.

We also make mention that starting next year we will make one in every 3 or 4 shows a listener request. Bernie mentioned one film he will not touch. I say that (in the best Terry Frost style) if we get 20 requests to do it, we will definitely cover it on a future show, AND invite someone who loves the film to come on and tell us off about how snobby we are. What was the film? Listen to episode 10 and find out.

If you’ve been enjoying the show, please give us a favourable review on iTunes and let your friends know that our show exists.
