Storyline

Gunfights and electric guitars in the Old West? You bet! Zachariah gets a mail order gun, practices a little, and kills a man in the local saloon. He and his friend Matthew set out to become gunfighters, joining with the Crackers, a rock band who are also (pitifully inept) stage robbers. Having quickly outgrown that gang, Zachariah and Matthew set out to become bigtime gunslingers. Before long, they part company and a rivalry grows between them. Written by George S. Davis <mgeorges@prodigy.net>

Off The Wall, For Sure.
11 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie in it's first run with a date. She was totally confused, I was excited to see anything with the music I knew, and two Firesign Theater members involved. I was most impressed with Doug Kershaw's music. The James Gang also had one song that rocks more than just about anything else they ever did. I recently found it on Itunes, but was never able to find the music Kershaw played in the film. I wish the soundtrack were available, I'd buy it in a minute. I did buy the LP right after I saw the film and still play it. The rock version of the William Tell Overture is also a riot. Once you hear it, you'll never listen to the classical version the same. The DVD was released a few years ago, and I have it. It's a strange film, but there's certainly nothing remotely like it. A classic.
