Juke Box Meccanica
From my obsession with motorcycle and hot rod movies, inevitably comes an equal obsession with moto movie soundtracks and vehicular tunes in general. I’ve collected the records for years, and have compiled on youtube, a digital JUKE BOX where you can listen along, as well as regularly posting songs to the Cine Meccanica Facebook page. So, it wasn’t a huge surprise when I was contacted by journalist Jeffrey Zani to do a piece on the Tunes of Cine Meccanica.
We sat down last summer in my Brooklyn studio, listened to records and talked about everything from the history of vehicular cinema to the music they feature, to the genre hot rod songs and motorcycle centric music. Think Hot Rod Lincoln, and Black Denim Trousers and Motorcycle Boots (the first biker song, read all about it HERE)
But then, low and behold, where did the article end up…Why Rolling Stone Italia of course!
