Straight to Hell

"While the film received almost no positive reviews, it has (like several other of Cox's films) achieved a minor cult status, largely due to its cast of musicians, many of whom have cult followings of their own."

"[Spider] was extremely able. Shane MacGowan isn't really an actor. It was difficult to explain to him that you had to do things the same way twice." [Alex Cox]

Aah, blaah. I just had some 2am cup noodle. You know what I'm talkin about. Ok. Lessee. . .

Hey cool kids! Continuing in our infernal theme (Bosch, l'enfer, keeeling), howzabout the soundtrack to Alex Cox's totally weird, kinda bad, but completely lovable 1987 film Straight to Hell, featuring among others Mr Joe Strummer, the Pogues, Sy Richardson, Dennis Hopper, Elvis Costello, and Grace Jones for all of 3 minutes. (And Courtney Love. But don't let that scare you away.) This all of course means that the soundtrack is gonna feature the Pogues, Joe, and all those good things, including my new favorite Pogues song now that I finally have my hands on it "Rake At the Gates of Hell." Pray for Rain does the majority of the tracks, Cait O'Riordan and the crew sing "Danny Boy," and the guy from the Circle Jerks sings about hot dogs. Just try to say no.

Tracklist in comments, and you can also just grab the Pogues track from zshare. Enjoy! By the way, I think Mike of The Upsetter 1969 had the film itself up awhile ago.
