Book Excerpt of the Day

“The intro from Faster Pussycat! KILL! KILL! is the iconic Russ Meyer soundtrack number. It combines a sublimely twisted monologue about sex and violence with a walking bass line and Philly-licked cymbal ride that lurches into a rollicking rock ode to ‘Pussycat’s’ rebellious ways – complete with ‘go, baby, go’ taunts from the strip club patrons featured in the film’s frantic opening montage… It’s frenetic style-hopping perfectly complements the director’s virtuoso editing style.”

– from Chapter 3: Sexploitation Serenade of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
