From The Desk Of Thalia Zedek: “The Beast Pageant,” A Film By Albert Birney And Jon Moses

The quiet, introspective Eve shows off the Thalia Zedek Band’s impressive musical range. Zedek made her name playing her singular brand of ear-splitting, dissonant lead guitar with Come, Uzi and Live Skull, outfits known for their fierce approach to performing and recording. Her music with the Thalia Zedek Band may not be as loud, but it has the same level of emotional intensity that’s always been her trademark. Zedek will be guest editing all week. Read our new feature on her.

Zedek: Set in the future, a totally bizarre film about a young “factory” worker guy who has a tiny singing cowboy growing out of his stomach. It also seems to reference the industrial farming of fish and many other ecological concerns. Both surreal and gross but in a fascinating way, the ”singing cowboy” is actually a great (and hilarious) singer/songwriter, making it a musical of sorts.
