BROTHERS OF THE HEAD

Post by Shiney on Thu Jun 18, 2009 6:52 pm





Since we here at ST love our music almost as much as our horror, I offer up this little gem.

I recently caught this on cable, it's based on a novel by Brian Aldiss. It's the story of two brothers, conjoined twins, who are plucked and poised for stardom, in the form of London's blossoming punk scene in the 70's. A seismic furious band called THE BANG BANG fronted by siamese twin brothers, one who sings and one who plays guitar....the film, in docudrama style, chronicles their rise and subsequent demise in grim stark fashion.

The soundtrack is fucking superb. The songs were mostly written and performed by the actors who play the brothers and the vitriolic 70's Fuck you vibe is coated with bile and phlegm and spat on your new shoes. It's a difficult and amazing film...

The above youtube clip is a morsel to chew on....and actually one of the weaker tunes on the soundtrack.
