One of the earliest recordings to feature Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is surfacing on a new soundtrack. The song, called “Now I’m Alone,” was recorded in 1985 by Washington D.C. group Mission Impossible, which included a young Grohl on drums. The tune appears on the soundtrack to Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, D.C., a documentary about that city’s punk scene.
Filmmaker Scott Crawford said, “Mission Impossible were a phenomenal, albeit short-lived, live band. I went to several of their practices in Virginia and just sat back and watch them go nuts. They were all superb musicians and watching Dave behind the drum kit was always a thrill.”
The film, which chronicles the evolution of punk in the city from 1980 to 1990, came out in 2014, but Crawford is finally putting together a compilation of songs from the movie due to demand. He recently remastered the tracks and is taking pre-orders for the album, which will officially come out December 10th.
The rest of the soundtrack contains music from seminal D.C. bands such as Government Issue, Jawbox, Shudder To Think, Youth Brigade. Soulside, Void and others.
