Announcement: If you live in the New York City area, you might want to check out the Anthology Film Archives which is running a John Moritsugu festival. Ok, I've personally made an uninformed decision that I'm not interested in his movies. I've never seen one mind you, but they just don't look like my cup of tea. But, his film soundtracks have been pretty interesting. Feel free to let me know if I've made a huge mistake by assuming that he's another Gregg Araki. Trivia note, and I do mean trivia: one Dustdevils instrumental (not a good one, but you know how it is...) is available only on the soundtrack to his Hippy Porn movie. And that soundtrack, which was supposed to come out on Matador long ago (see their I'm Sorry page, item #2) is available (as far as I know) only from this place. Meanwhile, the soundtrack to his Mod Fuck Explosion film includes an entire side of Unrest that's (mostly) unavailable anywhere else. Just thought you might want to know. [I can't tell if the Hippy Porn soundtrack is still available, though I see that the movie itself is...when you click on the movie it brings up a window that implies that you can order the cassette. I got one a while ago. Write to John and ask what's up. Looks like Mod Fuck Explosion (vinyl only) is still available. Not Unrest's best, but the record itself is a pretty neat "objet" - colored vinyl and nifty sleeve that looks much nicer in real life than in the photo. One song is on the BPM compilation.]
