Episode 40 – Red Scorpion & The Tragically Hip’s Up To Here

This week on a very special Time Bandits, we travel back in time to check out the explosion-filled Dolph Lundgren film Red Scorpion – from director Joseph Zito, who you may remember from Invasion USA fame. Yes, this man knows his action, and isn’t afraid to pack this flick to the brim with stunts! How does it hold up?

Afterwards, we get into a lengthy and fascinating discussion about the debut album from The Tragically Hip (Up To Here), before spiraling into an aside about the Canadian music landscape.

Of course, to help us navigate such territory is none other than The Schomberg Fair‘s Matt Bahen. An incredible musician, immensely talented artist, and all around great guy, he’s the only one to go to for both this kind of movie, and an in depth talk about Canada’s music industry. Don’t forget to grab their final – and maybe their best – album, I Won’t Be Afraid!

    I listened to The Hip. Even though I know they were around first, they have a Bare Naked LadiesbHarvey Danger vibe. And the American equivilant is Weezer. When they 1st came out, people who were into music and cool people listened to them. But now, only hipster douche bags love them because they play music that caters to them.
    The best canadian album I heard this year is The Brains (from Montreal) “The Monster Within” album. It’s fucking awesome.
    Also, Kurt Russell’s the Yentle. Directed by John Carpenter. Music by William Shatner. Narrated by Bob Ueker.
    And THAT’S the score babe.
