A few months back I went through a ‘Justified’ phase. I watched all 4 series of this modern take on a western. While the lead actor – Timothy Olyphant – is a bit bland, the show is well written and has excellent character actors. I particularly enjoy Walton Goggins who plays the charismatic villain Boyd Crowder.
If you haven’t caught up with the show it has a familiar plot; small town kid makes good in the big city and is then sent back to his hometown. In Justified home is Harlan Kentucky and the small town boy done good is Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Givens deals with villains who are usually his former school mates.
Flush with enthusiasm I put together this mix. In my mind’s eye the songs relate to characters with the theme song being track one. I did consider editing down a video with the characters and scenes that I was thinking of, but it didn’t happen. I have moved on and I am now fascinated by Äkta människor, a stylish Swedish Sci-fi about robots living among humans. Yep, short attention span.
Anywayz, I ended up with a most enjoyable mix. I will add some videos for the songs later.
Gnarly nuggets. Another late night favourite. Dave Davies from the Kinks is on the cover. I am trying to track down the doco on him by Julian Temple. (update, you can watch part one below, or the whole shebang here)
The Ravonettes cover The Stone Roses. I remember this song as the sound of summer 1990 in London when I was knocking around in Clapham. There is apparently a new doco out about the ‘Roses, although the reviews are underwhelming…
