Saxophonist Skerik, bassist Brad Houser and drummer/percussionist Mike Dillon are committed to musical subversion of the highest order. Exploring a muso obsession of musical styles and sonic colors, The Dead Kenny Gs have both the courage and the chops to realize their wildest aural fantasies.

CIMMFest 2011 – Chicago International Movies and Music Festival, April 14-17

Love music? Love movies? Well, Chicago, you’re in luck! Beginning Thursday, April 14, the 2011 Chicago International Movies & Music Festival kicks off. “Bringing together movies about music, movies for music, movies of music, and movies capturing music as it is made.” CIMMfest will take place in the music mecca of Wicker Park and will consist of three days of movie screenings, panel discussions, workshops, and more. The whole festival will kick off with the world premiere of Fix: The Ministry Movie, a documentary about influential Chicago industrial band Ministry.

“Fix” was directed by Douglas Freel, an award-winning music video director who directed videos by such bands as Kiss, Def Leppard, Rush, and Poison in the height of MTV’s 80’s hair-metal hey-day. He later went on to direct videos for alternative rock heroes The Replacements, Faith No More and The Cult. According to the film’s bio, “Fix: The Ministry Movie gives a raw look at the demons artists fight – and create – while attempting to reach, and achieve infamous greatness.” The film also features interviews with Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys and Lemmy Kilmeister of Motorhead. Douglas Freel will make an appearance at this world premiere and will be joined by Ministry bass player Paul Barker.
