Closing with a Song Blister in the Sun - Violent Femmes

While it would be neat in most weeks to tie the Friday music video to the movie we’re discussing via the soundtrack, it doesn’t always work out so neatly. Many soundtrack videos consist mainly of clips from the film its supporting and nary a unique story to go with the music video.

Luckily, with Grosse Pointe Blank and its 14 year old soundtrack single “Blister in the Sun” that’s not the case. This one has a full on little take on assassins showcasing influences of The Manchurian Candidate and Abraham Lincoln. It’s a pretty wild video for a pretty wild song.

Aaron Neuwirth joins me again to discuss the band, the song, the video, its relation to the movie and to bid everyone adieu until next week’s show.

Due to copyright and fair use laws as well as Apple and Spotify sweeps for such things, I’m not going to roll the dice and be including a clip of the song in the episode. However, you can watch the entire video before listening right here.

The Brandon Peters Show will return Monday (10/5) with a unique discussion on Back To The Future with special guests Sharareh Drury (The Hollywood Reporter, E! News, Culturess), Audery Lane (HorrorHound, Pop Con Film Festival) and Troy Brownfield (The Saturday Evening Post, Graphic Policy, Sparkshooter)
