Exclusive interview with Donald Rubinstein, composer of the great score of Romero's unusual vampire movie "Martin" (1977)! Stuck on the Tarmac Podcast with Donald Rubinstein, Composer of the score for George Romero’s MARTIN

HAPPY HALLOWEEN CREEPS, CRETINS AND COFFIN DWELLERS!

On the second edition of the Stuck on the Tarmac Podcast, resident degenerate Tarmac is joined by the one and only ABE.

Yes, ABE rose out of his sarcophagus like a grumpy mummy to give Tarmac a hand in discussing George A. Romero’s lesser-known masterpiece of modern vampires,  MARTIN (1977). In a special treat, Abe and Tarmac talk to the very cool Donald Rubinstein, who, among other things in his varied career, composed the awesome score to MARTIN. It is a score that MOJO Magazine called one of the “Top 100 Coolest Soundtracks of All Time.

Tarmac would like to personally thank Abe and Donald for making this a great Halloween Podcast. Please see the links below to find out what Donald is working on now.

Tarmac492

Imprisoned on the overtaxed, overpopulated and overpriced fortress of Long Island, Tarmac492 seeks refuge in the pop junkyard of his brain. He enjoys books, film, television, music and a good drink, or seven every now and again. Beautiful women love being "friends" with him and they find his useless knowledge mildly diverting. Tarmac492 hopes to move to Tierra del Fuego where he can waste away--blissfully drunk and anonymous--at the end of the world.

  • Delbert Zissou

    I feel like I can’t push you around the same way is the problem though.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Gerwig would be a great get!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    we should do another one. I am down.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Just like you were Mia Farrow.

  • Will listen tomorrow! It’s too close to midnight now…

  • gorgarwilleatyou1

    Great listen hope you do more Tarmac!

  • Stalkeye

    Tar has that quintessential Long Island accent not to mention, how he comes off very earnest and likable…because he is! Interesting perspective on Mental Illness and what’s unfortunate is that there are a lot of undocumented individuals out there who are experiencing illnesses (Which is far moreso than your overly categorized Schizophrenia.) such as Manic Depression, BiPolar, PTSD, Panic Attacks/Anxiety etc.

    These individuals would not seek medical treatment out of shame and stigma thus they have trouble coping in the real world. And what’s funny is, people who are more invested in what Kimye would name their unborn child or believe that the News Media has sincere intentions when covering crime and scandals, are the ones who are “Nucking Futs”.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    One of Romero’s better films. That’s not saying a lot……..

  • Finally listening. Haven’t seen the film, but fuck it, I’ll listen to Tar and Abe anyway.

  • Dat question, ya stunned him!

  • Oh man, someone needs to find that 165 minute cut.

  • Dude’s busier than me.

  • Tarmac492.1

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    THANK YOU.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    First time I hear Tarmac!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Bet all the ladies fall for them dulcet tones!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Ah, I’ve heard of Martin after looking up Romero on the internet after watching all three of his Living Dead movies.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Is he a vampire or a mentally ill dude who thinks he’s a vampire? AMBIGUITY FTW.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Wow, awesome interview! I’ll be sure to check out Martin, Tarmac! And what an exit, Abe!
