Kick Ass [Music From The Motion Picture] - Various

Top quality sherbet. Fruity dialogue - sadly, children swearing remains funny - intersperses a well chosen collection of the revived, recent and re-tooled:

01 Stand Up - The Prodigy layer big big beats over Manfred Mann's Earth Band's One Way Glass.
"It's fucking awesome"

02  Kick Ass - Mika vs Redone R Hi NRG

03  Can't Go Back - Primal Scream find their mojo (one more time).
 "I never said Batman"

04  There's a Pot Brewin' - The Little Ones

05  Omen - The Prodigy are manic - i.e. at their twisted best.
"Bring it on"

06  Make Me Wanna Die - The Pretty Reckless are.... pretty average.
"I'm just fucking with you daddy. Look, I'd love a French made model 42 butterfly knife"

07  Banana Splits - The Dickies are even worse than memory serves.
"It's in the shape of a giant cock"

08  Starry Eyed - Ellie Goulding is ahem, starry-eyed

09  This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us - Sparks demonstrate how once singles could be both pop-tastic and envelope pushing. Still fresh as fuck.
"Out of Kick Ass and Red Mist, who do you think would win in a fight?"

10  We're All In Love - New York Dolls sound disconcertingly like Blue Oyster Cult on this 2006 "come back"

11  Bongo Song - Zongamin is left-field dance producer Susumu Mukai; there be bongos here

12  For a Few Dollars More - Ennio Morricone, 'nuff said.
"Play time's over kid"

13  Bad Reputation - The Hit Girls do a fair imitation of a Runaways/Suzie Quatro

14  An American Trilogy - Elvis Presley would definitely win in a fight (air kara-tay). Oh, and 'cos he da king.
"Show's over motherfuckers"
