Garage Rockin’ Craze, the new film by indie director Mario Cuzic (Tsunami Attack, The Swap), is set to premiere as part of Australian Music Week Film Festival this week in Cronulla, just outside of Sydney.
The film takes you on a savage journey into the heart of underground Tokyo rock and roll. Shot over six years almost entirely by Cuzic alone, the film centres on promoter Daddy-O-Nov, the man responsible for discovering titans of Japanese gunk punk such as Guitar Wolf (Wild Zero), the 18.104.22.168’s (Kill Bill), Teengenerate (GET ACTION!!).
Daddy-O, a self professed bike nerd, 50-something construction worker, Radio Underground label owner, and Deejay, and his fellow house deejays chronicle the history of garage punk music in Japan and their own involvement with the monthly gig/record hop Back From The Grave.
A work of unbridled passion and DIY spirit, Garage Rockin’ Craze was called by A.D. Puchalski of Shock Cinema Magazine “a wild ride of grinding guitars and unfettered creativity.” 120% balls-to- the-wall, frantic, primitive teen rockin’!
The film has its Australian Premiere this Thursday night, at 8.30pm, at the GU Film House in Cronulla. To grab tickets to the film, and for more details head HERE. Tickets are just $10!
