We had a blast working on a tribute to one of our favorite flicks of all time - the 1984 cult classic "Repo Man" written & directed by Alex Cox and featuring Harry Dean Stanton and Emilio Estevez. The original soundtrack celebrated the southern California punk movement of the late 70's/early 80's with bands Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, The Plugz, and Iggy Pop. We've recruited an outstanding group of artists to cover these now-classic punk tracks, including; Those Darlins, Matthew Sweet, Amanda Palmer, Mike Watt, The Tellers, Black Francis, Weekend, Polar Bear Club, Moses Coltrane, New York Rivals, and The Suicide Dolls. The 6-panel CD Eco-Wallet features original illustrations by revered rock-poster designer Lonny Unitus (Melvins, Decemberists, Willie Nelson), includes full production/player credits, and some great elements inspired from the original film.

Praise for a tribute to Repo Man...

"A choice idea... passionately performed and respectfully executed... smashing fun!" - Three Imaginary Girls

"ALR tackles the 'Holy Grail' of movie soundtracks and from start to finish 'a tribute to Repo Man' delivers." -

"Terrific! Repo Man fans will have a good time with this." - Dagger

American Laundromat is a premier tribute label, toasting timeless artists (Cure, Smiths, Neil Young, Kim Deal, Pixies, etc.), but this one’s cleverly for the soundtrack of 1984’s Repo Man, a hip, hilarious Alex Cox movie about car repossession. The original plumbed still-vital L.A. punk; the Circle Jerks even appeared in the film, lampooning themselves. It was woefully incomplete (no X, for one), but hit leading lights such as Black Flag, Fear, the only good Suicidal Tendencies song (“Institutionalized”), and stealing the day, three Plugz songs. As usual, ALR coaxes established, comparable acts to truly handle the task, such as Black Francis, Mike Watt, Matthew Sweet, and Those Darlins, who shine on Iggy Pop’s down and dirty title track; though freshest updates come from New York Rivals—making Circle Jerks “Coup d’Etat” Ravonettes-esque—and Amanda Palmer—turning “Institutionalized” even more insane. Another hit!" - Jack Rabid (The Big Takeover)

"A killer collection with a lot of heart by some cool indie artists. Hands down our #1 CMJ add this week." - WCNI

"A damn good record!" - Punk Music
