Hard Rock Jukebox. L-R: Woolly, Rockin Wok, Stix McNugget, De Cyst, Dick Stone and The Masheen
Stix rocks it out.
This rockumentary (part urban-terrorist documentary, part improvised band politics) tells the story of the local cover band Hard Rock Jukebox, returning to the stage more than five years after their first, and to date only, gig. Band members reminisce about their first taste of playing to a crowd, creative tensions, and where they think the band is headed, completely oblivious to the fact that they are - to quote one punter - "the shittest band ever".
More information and MP3s of the band can be found here.
