'CBGB' soundtrack includes Talking Heads, Police, Blondie, MC5, The Stooges
The soundtrack for “CBGB,” the upcoming film about the iconic New York club, will feature music from some of the iconic acts who are forever linked to the venue and its ‘70s heyday, including The Velvet Underground, Blondie, Talking Heads, and Police.
Interestingly, the soundtrack includes Joey Ramone’s “I Got Knocked Down (But I’ll Get Up),” but not a track from the Ramones. The only new music on the set is a 2013 version of Blondie’s “Sunday Girl.”
The soundtrack will come out Oct. 8. Small indie Omnivore will release the vinyl and CD version, while Rhino will put out the deluxe digital version.
The film, which will premiere at New York’s CBGB Music & Film Festival in October, stars Alan Rickman as club owner Hilly Kristal, as well as Malin Ackerman as Blondie’s Debbie Harry, “Harry Potter’s” Rupert Grint at Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome, Foo Fighter Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop, and Sting’s daughter, Mickey Sumner, as Patti Smith.
According to the movie’s Facebook page, the official trailer will come out next week.
