    How did Setlusting Bruce's Jesse Jackson React to the Springsteen-centric Blinded By the Lights (2019)?

    How did Setlusting Bruce's Jesse Jackson React to the Springsteen-centric Blinded By the Lights (2019)?

    Jesse Jackson of the Setlisting Bruce Podcast joins the podcast to talk to Ryan about the soundtrack to the 2019 Gurinder Chadha film, Blinded by the Lights, a film that is centered around a character's discovery of the music of Bruce Springsteen. Naturally, Jesse is the perfect guest to talk about The Boss, who contributes 12 songs to the soundtrack. Jesse is also familiar with the book that the film is based on, Sarfraz Manzoor's Greetings from Bury Park, so Jesse explains the differences between the film and book, as well as some factual errors regarding the film and Bruce's discography.

    Why is the Fugazi's Instrument (1999) Soundtrack Not Just Another Fugazi Album? w/ David Ballantyne of the Vinyl Score

    Why is the Fugazi's Instrument (1999) Soundtrack Not Just Another Fugazi Album? w/ David Ballantyne of the Vinyl Score

    David Ballantyne of The Vinyl Score returns to make his 2nd appearance of the year to talk about the 1999 Jem Cohen documentary, Instrument, which captures a 10 year snapshot of the band, Fugazi, between 1987 and 1996. Even though the film has live footage, and footage of the band recording, it's not a traditional rock documentary and the soundtrack also subverts those expectations.
    David and Ryan share about how they first discovered the band and what expectations they had for the documentary upon first viewing. They also talk about the legend of the band, especially of it's frontman, Ian MacKaye.
