wifs_addicted_store.5The punk rock orchestra elucidate the 20th century through the a song cycle tracing the life of world-battered,¬†morphine-crazed, tragi-comic character actor Peter Lorre. The manically beautiful song-spiel trips through vampires, Berlin, strings, horns, anti-fascist action, ’40’s Hollywood, piano, guitar, drums and heroism with a good criminal heart and a smile for which to die. The album, soundtrack to the acclaimed theatrical presentation, follows Lorre’s enigmatic existence from formative days alongside Wedekind and Brecht through the cycle of World Wars to a pitiless fall from grace in the drug-infused quagmire of Hollywood vines.

The record was produced in Coney Island by the legendary NY hardcore producer Don Fury.
