Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

GROSSE POINTE BLANK : Soundtrack (1997)

Pretty good film this one, featuring John Cusack, the tasty Minnie Driver & the great Dan Ackroyd. The soundtrack is decent also - nothing rare though features tracks by The Beat, Clash, Jam, Specials & Pete Townshend.


  1. one of my alltime favorite movie..... droll scene:ackroyd and cussack at breakfast or in the supermarket and the shootout at the end....... i LOVE THIS MOVIE- mr.ska you know what i like...
    people outside watch this brilliant movie and hear the amazing soundtrack...
    cheers my freund

    minnie driver:if u read this comment, mr.ska has my email address.....

  2. I agree Herr Pauli, a brilliant movie. I already have this on cd, have you checked out the 2nd volume of this soundtrack? Some not so essential tunes from the film but still better than most.
