From the vaults… “Lost” Trippin’ tracks…

Posted in Uncategorized
November 26th, 2013 by Spider

It is hard trying to remember it all now… just a couple of years later… I had demoed a bunch of songs in Finland after meeting Devi with an old friend of mine Juha Kataja. Ended up having a quick rehearsal in London with my mate from Down Under – Baz – on vocals and a drummer Paul McGuire… and off to a studio we went for a day with another singer mate of  Damian Cullen. We cut a bunch of tracks I’d written with Trippin’ in mind… sadly we did not have time to get them finished on time and with the help of Juha and a bassist/keyboard player Mark Nicholls we got them sorted out eventually… Here are few of the “lost” songs… some of them have since appeared in other indie films or punk comps… from the depths of old hard drives… and in the dark Finnish night I thought I might as well stick ‘em up into the cyber space…

Spider’s Sideshow – Too Fucked To Drink

Spider’s Sideshow – Punk Rock Girl

…and then the unreleased Ratbags album – for the world to hear!

Ratbags: “Sorry, Out of Service!” (full album – Ayumi’s version)

See you in the pit!


HULU — and Goodbye, Trippin’ Blog!

trip prod stillWow – it’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since THIS happened. Every year is so different from the next, I feel like I’ve lived a couple dozen lives by now. And TRIPPIN’ continues to have its own lives, too. Who’d’ve thunk it way back when as we traipsed through the woods with buckets of gore for two weeks and no budget to speak of?

Yes, it’s been quite a journey over the years with the filmmaking, festivals, travels and other assorted adventures. But I think it’s time to bring this blog to its rightful end rather than just leave it sitting here neglected, wondering if any more’s to come.

Our little movie’s had quite the life and we hope you’ve enjoyed the zany ride as much as we have. Thanks for following our adventures. FYI, many of the original Deviants are still collaborating on some upcoming projects – some just for fun like our web series MARTINI MOM & DEVIL SPAWN, others of a larger scale with actual budgets (which likely won’t go public for another year or two – bigger projects take more time.)

News on all of that is forthcoming, but not right away and likely not here. As such, this blog bids you adieu and thanks you for following us and being a part of this super fun journey!

Cheers, Devi

exorcism episode best stillSeason’s Greetings, One and All!

We here at Deviant Pictures haven’t been super public of late as we’re embroiled in  a daunting load of projects (as a team and individually) which hasn’t afforded us much time to stop and write about it. While most won’t be available for public consumption for another 2 years—they’re  rather bigger than past efforts and subsequently take more time—we have, in the interim, thrown together a wacky little web series just to keep the family together and remember our roots – sort of like a ‘family vacation’, only fun (well it is for us anyway, we hope you agree.)

Check out our latest Episode 7 of MARTINI MOM & DEVIL SPAWN – “The Screaming of the Hams” – as well as episodes 1-6 right HERE.

Happy New Year!
