Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy & Matt Sweeney :: Blood Embrace


The second entry of our new cult film column, Videodrome, went live this week focusing on the 1977 revenge fandango, Rolling Thunder – a film I was initially turned onto in 2005 via the Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy / Matt Sweeney collaborative LP, Superwolf. One of our favorite records of the past decade, Superwolf is home to the meditative “Blood Embrace”; a track that incorporates dialog from Rolling Thunder to harrowing effect, specifically the exchange between the war damaged Major Rane and his recently reunited wife. ¬†And I’ll leave it at that. Like the players themselves, the excerpted dialogue within the song’s frame is an inspired union. Buy the ticket, take the ride.
