The soundtrack for the movie about iconic New York nightclub CBGB will include many of the acts who made their name at the venue including Blondie, Talking Heads and The Ramones.
According to the producers CBGB the movie “follows the story of Hilly Kristal’s New York club from its origins as Country, Bluegrass and Blues (CBGB) to what it ultimately became: the birthplace of underground rock ‘n roll and punk. Kristal, a fan of Country and Bluegrass dreamed of having a club in the lower Eastside that catered to that kind of music, when he had difficulty booking those bands he turned to other kinds of rock music. Hilly had one demand of the acts he booked, they could only play their own original music. No top 40’s, no covers. It was the credo he lived by, support the artist at whatever the cost”.
CBGB stars Alan Rickman, Ashley Greene, Malin Akerman, Freddy Rodriguez, Donal Logue, Stana Katic, Rupert Grint, Joel David Moore, Ryan Hurst, Johnny Galecki, Ahna O’Reilly, Richard de Klerk, Mickey Sumner, Taylor Hawkins, Bradley Whitford.
