Noise rock? Post-punk? Country & Western? From Edinburgh, Scotland?
Indeed - meet The Country Teasers, the missing link between Tammy Wynette, Flann O'Brien and the Fall!
In 1995, the infamous underground rock'n'roll label Crypt Records put up a European tour of a pair of unlikely, then-unknown bands:
Memphis native Oblivians, a raw garage-punk trio, and a peculiar art-punk quintet from the UK : The Country Teasers.
The tour would prove to be the stuff of modern legend.
Two Italians, Gisella Albertini and Massimo Scocca, followed them around Europe with a 1978 Ford Transit and a borrowed camera, capturing the resulting
mayhem and madness on Hi8 video tape.
Now, 25 years later, this raw footage, alongside brand new interviews, is being compiled into a film showcasing the bizarre genius of The Country Teasers
and their provocative frontman Ben Wallers.
If you thought 90's rock 'n' roll wildness ended with Kurt Cobain's suicide in 1994 - well, think again!
