Tape-Era Travesties Volume 1: Synthesizers and Saxophones
A fun and, like, totally incomplete guide to the place where ‘80’s music and ‘80’s movies collide. Join filmmaker and author Michael J. Heagle for the story behind great movie songs, hit soundtrack albums, and musical movies of the 1980’s. Synthesizers and Saxophones tackles everything from movie musicals like Purple Rain and Streets of Fire, to cult movies with a musical bent like The Last Dragon and Howard the Duck. Rock band Queen and their work for such films as Flash Gordon and Highlander are explored, along with the complete 80s film output of everyone from Prince to Alex (Repo Man) Cox. Animated films, heavy metal horror films, punk movies, breakdancing movies, movies where the dancing is dirty, and a whole lot more gets the treatment here. With movie reviews, behind the scenes stories, and chart-busting hits galore, Synthesizers and Saxophones poses the question “did MTV ruin movies?” And just what are the greatest soundtrack songs of the VHS generation?
