Gremlinfc leaves unsettling trail
"A sickening bad-taste exercise". No not me , but one of me fillums which has continued to flummox audiences since it was released in.......(point)
What's its relevance to music? Well...
...theeee freaky song sung by theee Freak (can't say more but Point for the character) has been covered by Bauhaus, Devo, Norma Loy, WC3 (à trois dans les WC), Haus Arafna, Miranda Sex Garden, Annie Christian, John Hasbrouck, Pankow, Pixies, The Sherrysa-Whore, Desolation Yes, Bang Gang, Helios, Donny Who Loved Bowling, Forgotten Sunrise and Tuxedomoon. Indie rockers Modest Mouse borrowed lines from thee song for "Workin' on Leavin' the Livin'", as did the anarcho-punk band Rubella Ballet for their song "Slant and Slide. That's not a bad resumee for a song sung by a freak in a nightmare fillum.
I'll post the song itself when the SpillPoints have been dished out:
2. Gremlinfc's character (easy)
3. Character who sings song
4. Who/what is the quote "Oh you ARE sick!" about?
5. What's unusual about the music for the fillum?
...everything is fine, everything is fine.
Of course some people think it's unwatchable , pretentious shite...it's mos def weird, whichever viewpoint you take.
