Independent Movie Taps Into Independent Music

[ITHACA, NY] Enter Gus. A hitman sent from Chicago to either whack Alphie or let him go. The order will come on the café payphone, affixed to a wall only 10 feet from where Alphie sips his coffee.

Alphie, straightening his flatware as he folds the Buffalo News, looks up. “Gus.” he says. “Alphie,” Gus replies, “Mind if I sit down?” As if he needed to ask.

Cue music.

But the new independent feature from White Lightning Productions won’t feature the usual fare of expected Mafia music or top popular hits, “Waiting on Alphie,” slated for a Fall 2005 release, has complied a diverse and eclectic soundtrack to punctuate the original script.

“As we began editing this movie,” said writer-director Kevin Hicks, “we realized we had a very unusual and different kind of hitman story unfolding. Working with various artists from across the country allowed us to fill in the background with a wide array of styles that adds to the overall feel of the picture.”

Music like the country/punk strum and twang of Ohio’s B.J. O’Malley or the metal thrashing of 36 Hours or the trance-like melodies from La Cacahouette, both from Buffalo, New York, where the movie takes place. The soundtrack, which often emits from an antique café radio includes Wayne Garard from Detroit, The Blackwater Project from Columbia, Missouri and a title track from Tampa, Florida’s Anevis that sets the mood for the initial meeting of Gus and Alphie.

“As we pulled in all the elements of this movie,” said producer Eric C Lindstrom, “one of the main pieces we wanted to make sure we included was original music. It sets the tone and adds so much to each scene. As we started to pull together independent artists we realized the range of styles really added to the quirkiness that we saw unfolding. All the artists have been great to work with.”

Also included on the movie’s soundtrack is Lonnie Park and John West from Cortland, New York, as well as Buffalo’s The Missing Planes, daymonthyear and Ithaca, New York’s SPITZNAGEL.
