Meat, Viking Funeral, Odd Gods, and Gorilla Pussy at Cinema Sounds #8

​Last night's Borscht Film Festival edition of Cinema Sounds #8 at O Cinema deviated slightly from the usual format.

Amid movie clips scored by bands, there was a poetry reading by Abel Folgar as part of O, Miami, followed by a screening of "Roosters," a video depicting a graphic cockfight to the sound of another poem, as well as New Times clubs editor Jacob Katel's short film "Telephone Baptism" about musician, former self-described crackhead, and presidential hopeful Jason Handelsman.

And then local outfits Meat, Viking Funeral, Odd Gods (Ryan de Grandy of Psychic Mirrors), and Gorilla Pussy laid thrash and noise over a mélange of kitsch horror and Nick Jr. junk.

See the cut for a full video recap.

First up was blood, sliced limbs, adorable little girls, and women sick of the "complacency of Japan" in cult-classic Suicide Club to the tune of ominous no-wave pop from Meat.

Viking Funeral provided an experimental noise backdrop while an octopus and weenie discussed a love of bananas in Nick Jr.'s innuendo-laden Oswald cartoon.

"Telephone Baptism" hit the screen. "That's fucking cool. I want more," a dude in cut-off shorts and a striped beanie yelled at the screen following the conclusion of the two-minute flick.

Psychedelia, '50s glam, close-ups, and slow-burning apprehension in Hitchcock's Vertigo was met with crisp, discordant keyboard vibrations from the mind of Odd Gods.

And finally, before red plastic cups of Brooklyn Lager crumbled to the ground and fixed-gear bikes dispersed in all directions, David Lynch's Eraserhead alien-fetus dissection scene was overlaid with Gorilla Pussy's hardcore thrashing in an explosion of noise, foam, and grainy black-and-white grime.
