Flash and the Pan
A recent viewing of Guy Ritchie's latest Rock n'Rolla led me to eighties group Flash and the Pan,*which contained some peripheral members of AC/DC . A one hit wonder from Australia, FATP's sound seems to have come full circle now, as the twinkling keys and synths from this 83 hit are back in full force from the likes of Whitest Boy Alive and countless other remixists.
Guy Ritchie has a knack for buried gems on his soundtracks, most of them contain some overlooked tracks that deserve a second listen. Ritchie, who is a three time lucky one trick pony, directs a nice little scene,(perhaps winking at Pulp Fiction), and uses this track to great effect.
Listen to the whole thing here.
