Demonic DVD (of the Week)

We Like to Drink, We Like to Play Rock N’ Roll
Gringa Productions

This is the story of The Unband, three drunkards from upstate Massachusetts who formed a ramshackle party band in college and just never had the good sense to quit. The Unband took ten years to get nowhere, and this film shows you exactly how that happened, with all the attendant Spinal Tap-ish moments along the way, including their very own Yoko, who does, in fact, finally break up the band. Rock n’ roll really is a loser’s game, and this entertaining slice-of-life proves it. Highly recommended.

  1. This DVD actually exists? I'll have to track down a copy. I hope there's plenty of drunken footage of the ill-fated Unband/Def Lep state-fair tour.

    I remember they were getting ready to record a followup to Retarder. They wanted to cover Thin Lizzy's "Thunder and Lightning". I still wish that would've happened. :(

    That reminds me, I have to download the Thunder and Lightning demos sometime today.
