We Are What We Are, the US remake of the Mexican horror film “Somos lo que Hay” debuted at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and is now releasing a soundtrack which includes a track by Fervor Vintage Masters artist Tommy Strange and the Features.
The 1967 song It Was Me That Made Her Bad was one of three Fervor Records cuts heard in the rural psychological thriller, along with the 1957 tune I’ll Pretend (Glen Morris) and A Child Alone (Eddie Eldon). The first two appear on the popular compilation release Vintage Country, 1957-1969 (pictured above).
Critically acclaimed, this creepy remake from filmmaker Jim Mickle (Stake Land) was called ‘better than the original’ by Indiewire.com’s Eric Kohn and ‘one of the best horror films of 2013′ by HollywoodChicago.com.
We Are What We Are is slated for a limited US theatrical release on Sept. 27th, and the soundtrack drops Tuesday Sept. 24th on Milan Records.Read More

Hot Soul Funk From The Height Of Roller Disco
When it’s time to boogie on the dance floor and it’s 1978, Len Boone is the man to turn to.
Now you can roll-bounce your way back the golden age of Disco-Funk with Do Whatcha Feel, a hand-picked collection of previously unreleased gems, available worldwide on Fervor Records.
“If you don’t want to be lonely, put on your party shoes..and just do whatcha feel, whatcha feel…when the music hits you”
Boone first came on the pop culture radar when he wrote a Top 10 hit for The Bay City Rollers (You Made Me Believe In Magic).
He then went on to sign with Chrysalis where he released a 12” and two singles (Love Won’t Be Denied and There’s No Me Without You), which are still spinning in UK dance clubs to this day.
With an effortless RnB voice and a gift for Funk hooks, Boone continued to lend his talents to other projects and ended up penning several more charting hits for his colleagues.
His music has also appeared in several film soundtracks, including Where The Money Is (2000) starring Paul Newman, Remembrance (1982) with Gary Oldman, and The Bitch (1979) starring Jackie Collins.
Do Whatcha Feel, now available on iTunes, is a six-song EP of tracks recorded between 1978 and 1982.
It spotlights Boone’s skillful vocals, but also features prominent funky bass licks, slick guitar riffs, and an abundance of groovy old-school synth sounds, reminiscent of the Dance-Funk-Pop of Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall album.

New Lionsgate suspense-thriller The Frozen Ground hits theaters this weekend and sports not one, not two, but SEVEN songs from the Fervor catalog, and all of them are artists from Arizona.
Starring A-listers Nicolas Cage, John Cusack, 50 Cent and Vanessa Hudgens, this true-story takes place in 1980′s Anchorage where a serial killer had been on the loose for years, killing dozens of young women and burying them in the tundra. One victim escapes and enlists the help of a state trooper to find her assailant and get justice.
Keeping up with the authenticity of the truth-based story, the music selection is derived from original 30+ year old recordings. The 7 Fervor cuts come from a handful of critically acclaimed, wildly popular bands of the early 80′s Phoenix music scene.
Two syncs come from ultra-cool New Wave sensation The Jetzons. They are 4-3-1 and Real Time, found on the Fervor Records release The Complete Jetzons.
Another one was an offering by their colleagues, Power Pop pioneers Blue Shoes. The track is Hey, from the Fervor Records release The Best of Blue Shoes.
And for fans of the rough and tumble Oi! branch of Punk, The Rogues track Triumph Over Will is in the mix, available on the Fervor Records release Oi! Detroit.
And finally, there’s Loosely Tight. This band packed arenas with the glory of straight-ahead Rock and Roll, and managed to land THREE songs from their Fervor Records release The Best of Loosely Tight in the film. The tracks are: Let Me Go Crazy, These Walls Between, and Fightin’ Society.
Catch all 7 Fervor tunes in the new suspense film, and get a thrill from not only a gruesome true story, but also a nice full hit of the trendsetting music scene from early 80′s Phoenix, AZ.
