From the Echo Curio March 2008 newsletter:

SATURDAY, MARCH 29th 9pm five buck donation
DRONEVOLK FILM SCREENING

Mr. Brian Miller of Deathbomb Arc dropped off this little DVD one night, and after a short view, we realized the Echo Curio was the only place that could show it. Explore the world of European drone music, with the filmmaker Jef Mertens. Dronevolk revolves around four bands that play a prominent role in the ever growing drone and weirdfolk scene in Belgium. Jef Mertens made a selection of musicians to focus his film, not particularly on the scene itself, but more so on the people behind the music, their motivations and of course their MUSIC. From Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat's dark and moody folk, Bear Bones, Lay Low's drone based move to Belgium to Silvester Anfang's ungoing discussions and Ignatz' stories of playing on a boat, the film exhibits a certain RAWNESS through stumbling interviews, live footage and exclusive recording sessions. Shot straight to tape March through October 2007, Dronevolk serves as a music document for any self-respecting music lover. Expect some musical accompaniment with this substantial film.

For those living in LA or just happen to be there a little reminder of the Dronevolk screening at Echo Curio tomorrow night (March 29th)

Fantastic Sleep will be performing after the film. There's also supposed to be a Q&A phone-in with me but I'm not sure it will happen, will have to get up very early if it does.

Unfortunately I won't have dvd's for sale yet as I'm on a short delay due to the way I want the package to be.

Hope some of you can make it.

-Jef

ehmmm--- I doubt he'll be in LA, actually...

Anyways, best of luck Jef, make sure to drink a lot of coffe if the Q&A will take place.
Oh, will the dronevolk myspace be the place to buy the dvd?

my myspace page will be the direct place to place your orders.
But I'm hoping to distribute a small amount of copies through some international distributors.
