John Swihart

John Swihart

We’re back this week with a full show AND an interview with Napoleon Dynamite & How I Met Your Mother composer John Swihart!

The Berkelee-trained Swihart fuses ‘70s funk with electronica for the movie, providing a musical backdrop that expertly plays alongside the comedy, yet simultaneously allowing the jokes to breathe when necessary. Produced by Lorne Michaels, comedy Staten Island Summer unites SNL alums Cecily Strong, Bobby Moynihan, Fred Armisen, Will Forte, and Kate McKinnon for a hilarious coming of age comedy about two lifeguards on a mission to throw the biggest party of the summer.

Swihart has provided memorable scores for a number of coming-of-age, youth-driven projects, ranging from classic cult comedy Napoleon Dynamite, to Fox’s Red Band Society, and the Michael Cera film Youth in Revolt. Swihart scored the CBS’s landmark comedy How I Met Your Mother.

In this weeks show:

  • We take a look at the tv show news we’ve watched over the last week, and some gaming chat as Chris is on!
  • A full round up of the tv news from the last 2 weeks including the Galaxy Quest tv show, changes in Netflix & Amazon, and the new show from the creators of House and Supernatural!
  • An interview with John Swihart, the man behind the music for Napoleon Dynamite & How I Met Your Mother
  • As usual, all the latest air date updates, and a look forward to tv in the next 7 days.

As people have been away and tied up with work this week, it’s the perfect opportunity to air an interview I did recently with the author Richard Morgan.

Richard is a sci-fi and fantasy writer, who’s probably best know for his Philip K. Dick Award winning sci-fi novel Altered Carbon, which went on to spawn the Takeshi Kovacs trilogy. He’s 2nd trilogy ‘A Land Fit for Heroes’ moved him into fantasy, and is currently being turned into an interactive gamebook by Liber Primus Games.

If you don’t know Richard from his excellent novels, he also wrote the Syndicate reboot for EA in 2012, Crysis 2 for Crytek in 2011, and was largely responsible for rebooting Marvel’s Black Widow with his two six issue miniseries he wrote for the character.

You can find out more about the Land Fit for Heroes gamebook here, and more about Richard here.

Once again, we’re still away on holiday this week, but as I know we have a lot of Walking Dead fans out there, I thought it might be interesting to put up the audio from The Walking Dead panel we recorded back in March. We’ve played a few clips out on the show, but this is the whole panel with Laurie Holden (Andrea), Christian Serratos (Rosita Espinosa), and Tyler James Williams (Noah). You can see the actual video below too, but I know a lot of people will be listening to this on the way to work, and it’s kinda hard to watch YouTube and drive at the same time. 😉

Normal service will be resumed next week. :)

Charlie Clouser

Charlie Clouser

This week, as I’m away on holiday, we have an interview special with the one and only Charlie Clouser.

Charlie is a multi-instrumentalist composer, musician, producer, programmer and remix artist who has worked with some of the seminal recording artists of the last twenty years. Charlie, who was a member of Nine Inch Nails, currently scores Fox’s hit M. Night Shyamalan show Wayward Pines, starring Matt Dillon and Carla Gugino.

Charlie has scored several films and television shows, including the Saw films, which instantly became cult classics, CBS’s Numb3rs and NBC’s Las Vegas. Charlie also co-wrote the chilling main title theme for FX’s American Horror Story. His scores for the subsequent Saw series continue to define the films. Raw, grinding, propulsive, punctuated by incredible layers of sound and energy, they are classics in the horror genre. Charlie has also scored such films as Resident Evil: Extinction, Sony’s Pictures’ The Stepfather, and The Collection.

Charlie came into prominence as a member of Nine Inch Nails from 1994-2000. Before joining the band as keyboardist/programmer, he’d already built a following with his extreme synth work and remixes for Prong, Marilyn Manson, White Zombie, and others. His dense layers of chopped up beats and grinding synth bass lines were instrumental in defining the sound of White Zombie’s double-platinum 1994 breakthrough album Astrocreep: 2000 led to numerous collaborations with frontman Rob Zombie.

In the interview we discuss his work on Wayward Pines, but not before a brief discussion about the LA weather, and a chat about the changes coming to iconic tv show Top Gear, of which he’s a huge fan!
