“Qui sont les papas du Garage rock?”

Qui sont les papas du Garage rock?“Qui sont les papas du Garage rock?” – Le Drone​

feat. Pussy Galore, The Gories, The Wipers, The Oblivians, Chrome, The Spits, Thee Headcoats, The Mummies, Country Teasers and The Intelligence.

Pussy Galore:

Avant Boss Hog​, avant le The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion​ , avant Royal Trux, Jon Spencer, Cristina Martinez et Neil Hagerty ont fait leurs armes chez Pussy Galore, un groupe de DC totalement déviant qui envisageait sérieusement des choses aussi directes qu’intituler un album “on va leur faire bouffer de la merde lentement”. On ne leur fera pas l’affront d’appeler ça no-wave mais c’est globalement un des trucs les plus malsains que les américains ont produit.

“Edgar Wright Explains How He Crafted the Perfect Soundtrack for Baby Driver”

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – “Bellbottoms”

“It basically inspired the whole movie in a way. I was 20 or 21 when the album Orange first came out, and I [played] “Bellbottoms” on repeat on this audio cassette I had of it. I don’t think I actually even bought it—I dubbed somebody else’s copy because I didn’t have any money at the time. I would listen to the song, and I could imagine a car chase. And I wasn’t even thinking about a particular film, it was more about not being able to listen to the song without seeing a car chase in my head. So at some point, I had to come up with something and I had to write a theme to go along with that idea and this vision I had of this car chase. And that, in turn, spawned the idea of Baby trying to soundtrack the entire movie. You’re basically seeing the story through the ears of the main character.”

Behind the Music of Baby Driver, With Director Edgar Wright

“In the opening scene of Baby Driver, Baby (Ansel Elgort) sits behind the wheel fiddling with his click-wheel iPod. He cues up Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s “Bellbottoms” and lip syncs into an invisible microphone, making an otherwise private experience a performance. As three robbers jump in the getaway car, Spencer’s fiery track sets the tone for the first of many breakneck chases—much as the song itself planted the movie’s initial seed. When Baby Driver writer-director Edgar Wright first heard “Bellbottoms” sometime around 1995, he wasn’t a filmmaker yet, but visions of car chases danced in his head. “It was as close to synesthesia as I’ll probably ever come: ‘When I listen to this song, I think of a car chase—what is the movie that goes with this vision?’” says Wright…”
