Wormwood Official Trailer [HD] Netflix

This series is directly regarding the true story I heard in 1994 that prompted me to name the magazine MK ULTRA. I read the story while in college but when I heard it again in the winter of 94 it rang a bell of familiarity and was the perfect name for my forthcoming project which I had been putting together with other writers although it at the time did not have a name. Perfect in every way. 

 

The New York Times awarded it a NYT Critic’s Pick with reviewer A. O. Scott saying “Mr. Morris presents a powerful historical argument in the guise of a beguiling work of cinematic art — and vice versa.” Matt Zoller Seitz, writing for Vulture.com, “The filmmaking gathers all the bits and pieces of the story together and arranges them in ways that are clever, surprising, and so aggressively (and deliberately) self-conscious that there are times when the whole thing gets close to turning into an intellectualized formal exercise…there’s never a moment where Olson or Morris fail to fascinate” Vanity Fair called it “one of the most original things you’ll see all year.

SKYND PREMIERE “ELISA LAM” VIDEO

Gothic, Horror, and all things macabre come together in the thrilling new video for “Elisa Lam,” by musical duo SKYND. Produced and Directed by TallyHo!, you are viewing the world premiere of “Elisa Lam.”

 

The first of a tryptic of videos focusing on unsolved and mysterious serial killers and/or murders, “Elisa Lam” is a visual depiction of a real-life mystery. For those not in the know, Elisa Lam was a Canadian student whose body was mysteriously discovered floating in a water tank atop a Downtown Los Angeles hotel in 2013. She had been reported missing roughly three weeks earlier, and her body was only located when complaints at the hotel fatefully lead maintenance workers to the gruesome discovery. In recovered security footage from the day of her disappearance, Lam is seen talking to herself, exiting and re-entering an elevator, gesturing wildly, and acting erratically. Explanations for this footage have varied far and wide, but some suspected paranormal involvement.

 

Enter SKYND – who wish to only be known simply as the super covert duo of SKYND(vocals) and her partner, “F,” a Multi-Instrumentalist/Producer – who, working out of Studio 301 in Sydney, are now utilizing their brand of Industrial music to relay a story befitting of Lam’s bizarre death, done in the gorgeously haunting style of such blockbusters as 2002’s The Ring. Musically, Skynd have an explosive sound that will easily entice fans of groups like Die Antwoord, Prodigy, KMFDM, and artists such as Tim Skold.

 

Lyrically, SKYND reach deep, deep down into the sinister abyss of the human soul. In her own words​, SKYND explains: “​I want to get as close as possible to the evil​ ​that humans​ ​are capable of. I am obsessed with it.​..​ For weeks, months even, I’ve been trying to get into the heads of the most vicious, cruel killers. There is nothing more fascinating to me than people who have reached the boundary of their humanity.”

 

Adds her producer​: “T​he​ ​music picks up​ ​this​ ​concept of the boundary of humanity perfectly. That’s why her vocals are so defamiliarized. You can tell this is a human being, but it sounds grotesquely inhuman. Listening to these tracks, you should feel like you’re in a tiny room and the walls are closing in from all sides. In her lyrics, Skynd is the perpetrator and we as listeners are cornered victims. Nobody can escape this kind of dynamic.

 

Dark, suffocating, and deviously alluring, we might not yet know who the evil geniuses behind SKYND are – or, for that matter, who killed Elisa Lam – but this bizarre, abstract duo are definitely ones to watch for and “Elisa Lam” is just the beginning. More transmissions from the intensely grim world of SKYND will be revealed in due time, but for now, here is your first piece of evidence in this case of Industrial gloom.

ABOUT MOTÖRHEAD:
An English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, MOTÖRHEAD quickly rose to great prominence in the British punk and heavy metal scenes. Although they changed their line-up several times, MOTÖRHEAD never compromised or changed their unique, raging sound, which saw the band and their music become a lifestyle for many people from all genres, whether rockers, punks or alternative.
 
As a power trio, they had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40. The albums OverkillBomberAce of Spades and particularly No Sleep ’till Hammersmith cemented MOTÖRHEAD’s reputation as a top-tier rock band. The band is ranked number 26 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. As of 2018, their Grammy-winning sound has sold more than 17 million albums worldwide. Road dogs extraordinaire, for the last 20+ years of their career, MOTÖRHEAD were Kilmister, guitarist Phil Campbell, and drummer Mikkey Dee. In early 2015 they entered the studio to begin work on Bad Magic, which was released in late August 2015. It quickly became one of the band’s most successful albums, but sadly, Lemmy passed away on December 28, 2015. The band’s last record turned out to be a recording of two typically blistering sold-out shows from the Bad Magic tour, at Munich’s Zenith concert hall only a month prior to his passing.
 
MOTÖRHEAD released 22 studio albums, 13 live recordings, 12 compilation albums, and four EPs over a career spanning 40 years. The MOTÖRHEAD legacy (and lifestyle) lives strongly on through their music and loyal fans.

The long-awaited debut ‘Poptone’ album is finally here, teased by premieres of ‘Go!’ and ‘Movement of Fear’. Following up their hugely successful West coast tour, the band will soon tour the Midwest and East coast of North America, including both U.S. and Canadian dates.

The new album is being released via Cleopatra Records as a double LP consisting of 13 songs from their set, originally recorded for a recent Part Time Punks session on KXLU.

Through this project, Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins – both founders of Bauhaus, Tones On Tail and Love and Rockets – they continue to carry the torch of these critically acclaimed bands. As Poptone, they are now joined by Kevin’s daughter Diva Dompé on bass.

The trio will bring their blistering show to nine cities, including Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, SilverSpring (MD), Brooklyn and Wantagh (NY). The Poptone album.
Poptone was propelled to life by an epiphany that woke Daniel Ash up in February 2017. In the early hours, loudly jolted awake by Motorhead’s ‘Ace of Spades’, Ash had a light bulb moment…”I need to play live again”.
Borrowing their name from 1979 seminal P.I.L track, Poptone is bringing back to life the ground-breaking music of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets and the otherworldly Tones On Tail, playing a diverse repertoire of their own highly original and hugely influential music. 

Their set leans heavily on Tones On Tail, the songs of which have not been performed live for over 30 years! With Diva Dompé faithfully recreating original bassist Glenn Campling’s incredible bass lines, Poptone has essentially resurrected the Tones’ archives. Having played only 27 live dates during their existence, this band remains somewhat of an enigma. Poptone also performs a sprinkling of solo Daniel Ash, a healthy dose of classic Love and Rockets, and a dash of Bauhaus with live sets also featuring the odd inspirational cover to stir things up.

 

“It’s been quite a remarkable journey so far! We as a band have been overwhelmed by our loyal following turning up in big numbers and celebrating all the music we have made over the past forty years. “We love our audience!,” says Kevin Haskins.

“Performing all these marvelous songs from our back catalog has made me really appreciate what a great songwriter and guitarist Daniel is! Touring with my very talented daughter Diva, takes it to dizzying new heights. The addition of six more songs that we are playing on this new leg of the tour has for me, really cemented our legacy. I feel very grateful and blessed to be a part of this and very much look forward to the forthcoming shows.”


 
Poptone are fulfilling a lifelong dream for much of their audience, most of whom would not have seen Tones On Tail play live during their brief existence. Of course, Bauhaus was resurrected in 1998 (after a 15-year absence) and again during 2005-06 and, save for occasional appearances in 2007 & 2008, Love and Rockets bowed out in 1999. For all three groups, but especially with respect to Tones on Tail, this is your chance to seize the day – Go!

 
The new ‘Poptone’ record is available digitally, on CD in a mini jacket, and on white vinyl in a striking 2 LP set and can already be pre-orderedvia Cleopatra Records.
