    Richard Lefebvre's remake of Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki's Calamari Union was shot with a cast made up almost entirely of musicians from Seattle and Portland, including Soundgarden's Ben Shepherd, the Spits, the Girls, Mike Maker, Mudhoney's Mark Arm, Slats (R.I.P.), Caustic Resin's Brett Netsen, punk-informed marimba player Erin Jourgenson, and Eugene Wendell & the Demon Rind's Kwab Copeland.

    Copeland has one of the movie's most striking scenes, shot at a Lynchian motel in Georgetown, with him playing guitar under a blinking neon sign. The song is and acoustic version "Those Fuckers", which later appeared on Eugene Wendell & the Demon Rind's debut. Calamari editor Sean Donavan recently made a video to accompany the studio version of the song, using footage from the film.

    Eugene Wendell & the Demon Rind play the Funhouse on May 8.
