New Forest Film Festival 2011: My Playlists

As a way of psyching myself up for all the volunteering and screening for this year's New Forest Film Festival, I did several playlists themed around some of the screenings, as virtual foyer music, completely for my own enjoyment. I suppose early on, I did half fancy suggesting to the organizers that they consider playing out some of this stuff as part of the ambience for some of the screenings, but a few of them are actual musicians, have their own tastes, etc., and I quickly realized that if I went so far as suggesting this sort of thing, I'd mark myself out as an annoying weirdo. I may have found other ways to do just that, unfortunately. Time will tell, and if any of them cross the street when they see me coming, I'll bravely take the hint.

But, for those of you who just enjoy lists, you might like a look at what I put together.

I hadn't done a list for the silent film screening, after all it had live musical accompaniment from the Dodge Brothers and film music genius Neil Brand (perhaps the 5th Dodge Brother). I presumed they'd play out recordings of their own stuff, or something similar. Mike Hammond of the Dodge Brothers (film historian at Southampton Uni, in his spare time), said in his intro that the film The Ghost That Never Returns was a perfect project for the Dodge Brothers as they shared the themes of Transportation and Homicide (now there's an album title, if I ever 'eard one). So, I've done this list in tribute, post facto. I may do a "Transportation" one, but every time I think of it, I never get past the excellent Laura Cantrell's EP Planes and Boats and Trains, featuring a great cover of the titular Bacharach song, along with other transportation themed tunes.
