about the project
Spearheaded by filmmaker Jean-Paul DiSciscio and sound designer Ross Matthei, DiSciscio says, “Ross and I had the idea to film mini-concerts in my 1985 Chevy Caprice after recording sound effects for our film, Bloody Henry, which features the car prominently. I tried to sell the Caprice for a hot minute, but only received low-ball offers. It made sense to just keep it on the road - it’s pretty much like driving a couch with wheels. The enormous size of the car fits five people, various instruments, and recording gear comfortably.”
The first band to come along and ride on the fantastic voyage is FBGM. Based in Arlington, MA and comprised of Matt Jatkola and D. Orxata (formerly of Boston synth pop band, The Bynars), the duo showcase their songwriting and harmonizing with two original songs - “Dog Collar” & “Sassy Fran” - along with a fresh cover of The Breeders song “Fortunately Gone”. FBGM released their first demo recording of “Dog Collar” in October via Bandcamp.
