    Love Guru with a banjo
    Posted By Brance On 18th June 2008

    From time to time the banjo makes an appearance in a movie. Opening this Friday, June 20, 2008, The Love Guru, starring Mike Myers, is the latest movie to contain a scene with some bluegrass music and a banjo present.

    The song of choice is Foggy Mountain Breakdown. From what I understand, Myers would have used the original Flatt & Scruggs recording, except the demands of surround sound production ruled out that option. They needed a new recording, but one that sounded like the original.

    Myers is a fan of the indie powerpop group The Apples in Stereo. Robert Schneider, a member of the group, has a brother-in-law, Craig Morris, who is involved in the Kentucky music scene. When Craig heard of the need for a new recording of Foggy Mountain Breakdown, he suggested The McKendrees, a native Kentucky, bluegrass family band. Schneider stepped in to engineer the recording at Morris’ studio in western Kentucky.

    The players on the recording are Josh Coffey (of Bawn in the Mash) on fiddle, Justin McKendree - mandolin, Jason McKendree - banjo, Ricky McKendree - guitar, Ron Barnett - upright bass.

    A nasty and stupid movie, not worth watching, as is most Mike Meyers movies.

    Mike Meyers is a moron, and he makes stupid movies.

    But I will look up these McKendrees, because bluegrass music is good music.
