MISS MUERTE (The Diabolical Dr. Z) - Daniel J. White - "Cacophony" (1966)

Just like seeing fire shoot out of your headphones, this music is dissident, jarring and discordant! That's not easy to do and still be listenable. Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Sun-Ra, and all the free jazz cats blowing in lofts at 3 o'clock in the morning have nothing on this short piece that rumbles along like some kind of freight train from Hell shot off like a rocket into outer space in about 47 seconds! Whew! Try and imagine the whole Miles Davis Quintet falling down a flight of stairs together, then at the bottom they just dust themselves off and go on like nothing ever happened. That's what Daniel J. White came up with for this hunt and capture scene. It's short, it's nuts! It's chaos!! It's beautiful!!!

Oh, that Jesus Franco ... you gotta see "Eugenie De Sade," his absolute best film!

Psst, dudes. I wouldn't ordinarily ask since I missed out on it fair and square. Snooze, lose, right?

But... "the whole Miles Davis Quintet falling down a flight of stairs together, then at the bottom they just dust themselves off and go on like nothing ever happened..." Your description on this one is just too tempting. If your clip for this is still around somewhere, maybe you could drop me a line? corvusqwork, on gmail.
