Storyline

Undisputedly written into the annals of rock history and dedicated to the most sincere methods of the DIY ethos, Northwest musicians Dead Moon (Andrew Loomis and Fred & Toody Cole) have intentionally cut out the bullshit, and left the major labels and "commercial success" behind. Unknown Passage: The Dead Mood Story follows the band on the road and at home, chronicling lifestyle rock and rollers who happen to also be small business owners and grandparents. Beginning with footage of a 14 year-old Deep Soul Cole ("the white Stevie Wonder"), Unknown Passage tells the history of one of the most reclusive bands through their various garage, psych, folk, and punk rock incarnations. Today, pressing their records at home, in a house they built from the ground up, Dead Moon run their own "frontier mini-mall," record label and music store, while in their spare time "keep one gig ahead of a day job" by touring through the US and Europe-with the occasional 15-hour penny-slots casino pitstop.

Being a Dead Moon fan for 12 years now, this was really a gem to watch. The documentary is totally honest and exciting. Dead Moon have to be the nicest people in the world, and their music and lives in general are 110% true to themselves.

Lots of great live performances and interesting interviews with the band, the fans and the people involved.

Even if you don't like their music (what??) this is a documentary to watch, just to see that there's only one way of life, and that's your own.

Dead Moon forever
