Description

A black comedy-cum-psychodrama about romances, love affairs, sex and loneliness, staged in an expressionistic theatrical setting of absurd props and garish sets: "A charming tale that propels itself forward, a fatal black hole that rouses and reflects our innermost fears.“ (Oursler) The tape was the inspiration for the Sonic Youth album of the same title.
