Starving Weirdos: All You Need Is Noise (2015)
55min · Documentary, Comedy, Music · 1 January 2015
Starving Weirdos, an obscure noise band from rural Northern California, tours Europe's underground music community. The Weirdos are four friends who have bonded over their passion for making unusual music. They jump on pianos, flick rubber bands, squeak clarinets, scream through muffled microphones, and that's just in the first 'movement'. Ignored in their home town of Manila, (population 1,000) they've found a small following in Belgium, through mail-order CD-Rs. With a half-baked itinerary, they ditch their dead-end jobs, fly to Europe, squeeze themselves in a rented van, and drive from London to Berlin, gigging and meeting their fans along the way. Starving Weirdos make enough to pay for gas and they sure do have a gas. It's totally nuts!
