HELP OFF! MAKE THEIR MOVIE!
L.A. punks OFF! are crowdfunding a new movie for release next year!
Described as a ‘modern day Repo Man‘, Watermelon: A Sci-Fi Punk Rockumentary will be preceded by a new album of the same name.
The supergroup were formed in 2009 featuring former Black Flag and Circle Jerks singer Keith Morris, bassist Steven McDonald from Redd Kross, ex-Burning Brides guitarist Dimitri Coats, and Earthless drummer Mario Rubalcaba.
The comedy, which was begun in 2016, picks up in Los Angeles five years after OFF! have disbanded. In an attempt to conquer his diabetes-induced erectile dysfunction, Keith Morris comes across a mind-altering medication extracted from mysterious watermelons. The drug not only restores his virility, it also gives him the ability to travel through space and time, prompting him to offer it to the rest of the group as a solution to their problems. Dimitri, Steven, Mario, and Dale find renewed faith in OFF! as the watermelon helps turn the band into hardcore heroes who can see and predict horrific events before they happen. When they turn to music, the group discovers a new experimental approach which not only redefines punk, but also becomes an underground movement.
