Day 05 - 30 Day Movie Music Challenge

Music from a film that introduced you to an artist

I suppose this could be an artist from a soundtrack or from a band that featured in a film. For me, it's from a film of a concert: Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense.

I can't remember if my friend had seen the band live, or if he'd just seen this film, but either way, he talked me into seeing the movie. I've a vague notion that it was a late night showing at the Grosvenor Cinema in Ashton Lane but I might be haivering. I loved the way that David Byrne started off on his own, in a more or less empty stage and then the rest of the band and the stage set built up around him. 

A great concert movie and a great introduction to a band. Who did the movies introduce to you?

Oh... and why a big suit?

Ooh, too many to choose from. I (we - the other half is just as guilty) have a habit of watching cheap action films with heavy metal soundtracks. I often wait for the credits to find out who the bands are.

It does give a little glow of satisfaction when one in a hundred of them gets their own album released a few years down the line and I can say I was listening to them when they were the filler on a soundtrack album :)

I'm rarely allowed to stay until the end titles. Thank goodness for Google!
