xThis Is Drive Shaftx
Hello. My name is Murdoc Darkness. I'm a filmmaker. I make a lot of commercials, and have even managed to scrap by with some short TV talk shows. Remember that chaotic talk show that had the Kool Aid guy in every episode? Yeah. That was me.
In 1999, I was in a gritty old pub somewhere in London, called the Static Dragon. I think it's still there, but now it's a gay night club. Anyway, that night when I saw four scruffy looking young men get on stage, I was expecting another "Oasis" band. But what I heard knocked me off my feet.
That band was Britain's now legendary Drive Shaft. Six years and three albums later, they're now on "hiatus". But in the late spring of 2004, when I heard they were promoting a new album, "Sniff the Mitten", I jumped at the chance to make this documentary, if you will, "rockumentary". Or article.
I wanted to capture the sights, the sounds, the smells, of a hard-working band on the road. I also brought my good friend, Jeremy, a die hard Drive Shaft fan for the ride. I got everything that I asked for. And a lot of things that I didn't ask for. But hey, enough of my yakkin'! Let's rock!
(A/N: This is just an introduction. The first chapter should be up in a few days. Till then, you could always review...)
