Congrats go out to Bob Irwin – guitarslinger, producer and head honcho of Coxsackie’s Sundazed Music label – whose song, “The Throwaway Age,” is featured in one of the hottest new films of the season, Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice.”

“Damn proud, I am,” said Irwin, who recently re-located to Nashville.

Penned by Irwin, the slinky, twang-filled guitar instrumental was recorded in 2011 by Bob Irwin & the Pluto Walkers – also featuring drummer Chris Fisher, bassist Ed Wasilweski and organist Mike Dunn – at Fisher’s Easter Island Studios in Coxsackie. “The Throwaway Age” was released as a seven-inch single on Eddie Angel’s Spinout Records label, as well as the title track of the Pluto Walkers’ debut album on Sundazed.

In “Inherent Vice,” Irwin’s recording is nestled alongside some mighty heady company, as the film also features songs by Neil Young, Radiohead, Can, Sam Cooke, the Association, Burt Bacharach and others. Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead composed the score.

Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon, “Inherent Vice” stars Joaquin Phoenix (nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Actor), Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon and Benicio Del Toro, among others. The film opened in select theaters last month and will open nationally on Friday (January 9), including the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany.
