THE COLOR OF NOISE IS FINISHED!

Two years of production, hundreds of hours of archival footage and ten months of editing, we are finished! The film is currently being submitted into various film festivals in a slightly long version this Fall, so we won't have much news about screenings until the start of the new year. We are hoping for a short theatrical run possibly in the Spring/Summer of 2014! New web site and more info coming soon-
Thanks to everyone to contributed to Kickstarter last year- because of those funds we were able to finish- !
More soon-
Eric

West coast interview tour!

We stopped by Chris Cooper's studio in LA only to catch him in the middle of painting one of his iconic images. Coop showed us his incredible collection of Japanese toys as well.


My right hand man- Dimmitt (who was hungover that day) with the legendary Frank Kozik. Concert posters as art, Man's Ruin records and the Smoking Bunny.........very collectible stuff! Thanks for having us Frank!


Long Gone John! we were very humbled by his hospitality not to mention his jaw-dropping collection of art! Thanks John! Sympathy For The Record Industry.....nuff said!


Our first interview out west- The one and only legend- Helios Creed. He gave us his new CD and it became our soundtrack for the entire shoot tour- yes....this is mind-blowing music. One of my favorite releases for 2012 so far........


Jello was one of the more fascinating people we met along the way...was a hell of a nice guy and even played some of his favorite records for us- It was an honor to visit him in San Francisco- yep that's me after a late night interview session........


Shepard Fairey took time out of his very busy schedule to make sure he could meet with us and talk about how AmRep, punk rock and Tom Hazelmyer was vital in helping him in the early days. He was a great host and a cool dude- Thanks Shepard!


Interviews and out for Seattle pizza with none other than.....The Thrown Ups! yes, enough to make anyone go mad.....and throw up! Thanks Ed for having us over!


AmRep not only hosted an assortment of the very best in noise and adventurous acts, but liked their crazy-assed straight up rock and roll bands as well- enter Lollipop! TOP- me and Marc while listening to The Who, MIDDLE- L to R, Curt and Dave with my camera man Dimmitt then me. Oh yeah- that guy who is smarter than all of us put together is Curt's son in the middle! BOTTOM- L to R some dork and Lollipop's original bass player, Rebecca! and...............Ethiopian Lemmy. He was hungry and looked it- so Rebecca fed him from her pet food store in Maple Valley, WA.

MORE TO COME........

The Unsanity of it all!!!!

Words can't describe the serious and brutal tone of this meeting......!
Thanks goes to Vinnie Singorelli for letting us interview the band at home. Unsane is by far one of my most favorite bands, and it was great to talk to them about their experiences with Haze and recording the classic "Scattered, Smothered & Covered."

Page Hamilton visit to NYC!


Thanks goes out to Page for taking time to interview with us last week. We had some of the best NYC pizza in our hood (Nonna's) and talked about the pre-Helmet days and the AmRep legacy. Was an honor to share some time with a great musician. Here posing with my "bumble-bee" kit used with the Heroine Sheiks. We also followed Page and co. to The Black Cat in D.C. to shoot and record the show!

Visiting Rich Kronfeld at work- he was nice enough to send us off with a clear message about keeping the workplace tidy and clear of Liberal-minded, dirty hippie types.
