MIXTAPE #8: RANDALL POSTER

What does a meeting between Randall Poster and Wes Anderson look like? Both have their own distinctive sense of style, so perhaps they sit on art deco furniture, sipping the finest Ceylon tea from fine China cups, while discussing the soundtrack for a new film. Randall Poster begins his Week–End mixtape by listing several of the Hollywood films he has provided with a musical backdrop – including all of those by his Texan buddy. He also compiled songs for the film adaptation of the novel Jesus’ Son by the recently deceased Denis Johnson, and by honouring Johnson in his introductory words, Randall Poster confirms an old certainty: a mixtape turns out good if you really put your heart and soul into it. We then follow Randall Poster to several significant musical moments in his life,

starting with his first single, the song “Laughing” by The Guess Who, via Van Morrison’s “Saint Dominic’s Preview”, to other jewels from the treasure chest of the sixties and seventies – a box of pleasures that always seems to twang so sweetly when you open it, oozing with the authentic aroma of blues, soul, and rock ’n’ roll. Of course this wonderful tape couldn’t do without the likes of the Stones, Bobby Womack, and Rod Stewart, but it ends up rather surprisingly at Michael Hutchence and Future featuring Lil Wayne. But hey, what is life, or a biopic and its soundtrack, without unforeseen twists? While listening to his voice, and all of this beautiful music, you soon imagine Randall Poster sitting right in front of you – and he looks like a character straight out of Wes Anderson’s idiosyncratic universe.
