Each film focuses on lifestyle choices of particular members; Venison, the band’s tongueless drummer (who speaks with the aid of an electronic voice simulator), Piss Promise, the drug-addled guitar player/hedonist, American Art, hemp-smoking bass man transported from the 1700s to present day by “magical rock voodoo,” Mr Pod, the band’s pipe-smoking Hugh Hefner-esque bass player, and Dr. Hurtz, lead singer with an enormous (and fragile) ego. Sex-change operations, life-after-death, unscheduled decapitation, and Napoleon’s penis are just a few of the topics covered in this ongoing series of funny and innovative films.
