Alice Cooper narrates this ‘life is stranger than fiction’ documentary in a brutally honest yet entertaining look at the failure of this great rock band, featuring a who’s who of celebrities.Skum Rocks was formed in the early 1980’s by three members of a varsity soccer team with no musical background. They wrote and performed their own songs and quickly became one of the hottest tickets on the college circuit.
Coasting on critical acclaim as well as financial success the band embarked on a series of wild financial and business decisions. They turned down several offers from record companies and started recording under their own label: Refuse Records. Three years and several hundreds of thousands of dollars later (raised from friends and family) the band went bust.
From the road crew they recruited from a soup kitchen, to the guitarist who was obsessed with Traci Lords, to the vast array of drummers that no body seemed to remember, to the original bass players who never learned notes, Skum Rocks takes the rock documentary to a new level.
The band, newly reunited, will attend the screening and Q&A
