Hedwig and the Angry Inch

The other night I watched Hedwig and the Angry Inch for the first time in awhile. I had forgotten how great it was, because my DVD was lost somewhere during my move to/from Utah. Toootaly bummer. Anyway the music, all written by Stephen Trask, is all very well-done and makes Hedwig a Rocky Horror Picture Show for a new century.

These songs were culled from the tribute compilation called Wig in a Box with big stars like Frank Black, Robyn Hitchcock, Yo La Tengo and Yoko Ono, Cyndi Lauper, Polyphonic Spree and Sleater-Kinney doing the songs from the movie.

The Bens-Wicked Little Town (Tommy Gnosis version)
Spoon-Tear Me Down (with saxophones!!!)

Buy Wig in a Box.

Catch Hedwig and the Angry Inch and several other great movies (Before Night Falls, Boys Don't Cry, and Velvet Goldmine) during IFC's Queer Month, all through July.

Thanks for your blog. Until now the epitome of my music enjoyment in Japan consists of sitting in Mister Donut and listening to whatever the 'Misdo Radio Station' has to offer. Which sometimes sucks.

For those with the Sundance Channel check out "Follow My Voice". It's a pretty good doc about the making of Wig In A Box and some of the people the albums sales are helping.
