Arts Centre Melbourne is bringing in The Meltdown to perform a night of music from the classic ‘Pulp Fiction’ soundtrack.

The Meltdown is the Melbourne Soul, jazz and blues band featuring Lachlan McLean. Lachlan is a big line-up to perform Pulp Fiction.

The Meltdown

“We have The Meltdown featuring Simon Burke singing some of the classics of Pulp Fiction. We also have Benny Walter and Loretta Miller with us as well,” Lachlan tells We are pretty fortunate to have some quite versatile musicians in The Meltdown. The nature of what we do in The Meltdown and other groups is often being a chameleon. We play in lots of different styles”.

Arts Centre Melbourne needed a diverse band to perform such a diverse soundtrack. “A lot of the music in Pulp Fiction is suited particularly to our guitarist Tom Martin,” Lachlan says. “It is going to be great to hear him play the music. He was made for it or it was made him”.

The show won’t be exactly the album as we know it from beginning to end. “We are mixing it up a little just to accommodate for the guest singers and make it more of a live show,” he says. “There is a song called Strawberry Letter #23 that isn’t on the soundtrack but is in the movie. We’ll be adding those ones and putting them more in a gig order”.

Different singers will sing the songs that best suit them. “Loretta Miller will sing the Urge Overkill version of ‘Girl You’ll Be A Woman Soon’,” he says. “Benny Walker will guest on The Statler Brothers ‘Flowers On The Wall’. It is such an iconic soundtrack … everything from country to surf rhumba. Simon will also feature on Dusty Springfield’s ‘Son Of A Preacher Man’”.

‘Soundtrack Sessions: Pulp Fiction’ by The Meltdown is on for one night only December 2, 2017 at Arts Centre Melbourne.

On December 1, 2017 Cookin’ on 3 Burners will perform the music from The Big Chill for Soundtrack Sessions.
