Meet filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. If you are lucky, you have seen his transplantation of the ancient Japanese warrior code to the hipster-gangster-film in "Ghost Dog." If you are really lucky, you have perhaps marveled at his whimsically bizarre Rashomon-meets-Elvis study of perspectives in "Mystery Train". And, if you are super incredibly lucky, you have seen his seminal and bittersweet study of personal devotion, "Stranger Than Paradise." But, what you may not know is that Jarmusch had one of the most interesting experimental bands of the very early eighties. This is pure art.
