Episode 19: American Romper Stomper

Romper stomper Skinheads, Oi! Oi! Oi!

This week, Faults in the Vaults presents a pair of dour skinhead dramas from the 1990's. We're putting to the curb, the very troubled production of Tony Kaye's American History X (1998) in favor of Geoffrey Wright's Romper Stomper (1992). Oi! Oi! Oi!

This Week in Torrents Josh highlights a very titillating and little seen uncensored HD version of Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)! For Slipping Through the Tracks, Mitch chooses an underappreciated Carter Burwell score from David Mamet's The Spanish Prisoner (1997).

romper stomperIn The Soapbox Rant, Josh gives our listeners a history lesson on the origins of the skinhead movement and attempts to correct some all too often made misconceptions.

Finally, in Total Recast, Mitch swaps Edward Furlong from the problematic American History X while Josh chooses to find him a more suitable acting role!
