in 2017 I had the pleasure to work with my dear friend and director of avantgarde/experimental films, Joe Wakeman. I got to perform one of the leading roles and contributed to the score, which was an exhilarating experience because we also got to write a lot of our own dialogue which, in collaboration with one of the most eloquent and funny people I've ever met, is as they say- a fucking hoot.
The movie, Shoplifters,as described by director Joe Wakeman, is: "A series of tableaux depicting the activities of a group of naive would-be radicals, who think they want to be revolutionaries, but in the final analysis, what they really want is to be seen wearing berets"
"There's courage in your workers heart, I read it in your beauty-Marx"
Here's a version of the unmixed vocal track (vocs so loud it sounds like karaoke bootleg, can't find the mixed version) and an instrumental version.
