With Neil Innes, Dick Contino, Ted V. Mikels and CASH FLAGG. A film by Andre Perkowski - DVD out now: http://www.amazon.com/Teena...
-- What, really? Yes. Maladjusted teenager Pete Perkowitz has trouble coping with society and finds refuge in suburban noise rock and his slang-slinging loser friends until mad science and eventual mutation intervenes in this dramatic parable about the problems of juvenile delinquency. A searing indictment of society in a way that stands up to repeat viewings if you're into that sort of thing. Stopmotion, Super-8/8mm/16mm/DV is shredded like confetti and desperately woven together to form some sort of "moving picture film" for your eventual edification and click-clickity-click consumption.
Tetsuo meets Wild Guitar. Plus, it has Dick Contino in it. Smacking a bagel out of the title character's hand.
You can't get service like that from the leading film, which also lacks Neil Innes lecturing America's Youth on the savage realities of the recording industry. Not to mention Ray Dennis Steckler in one final from beyond the grave cameo as his alter ego... CASH FLAGG.
Features a feverish soundtrack by those foppish darlings of the dreary set, The Farmingdale Sound Machine.
