“Fucking Peter Merkin”
Puscifer is set to release a new DVD and accompanying soundtrack release titled “What Is…” on November 26, 2013 via Puscifer Entertainment.
The two-hour sketch comedy show-meets-concert film builds upon and punctuates the multimedia format of the band’s live performances with skits from the stable of Puscifer characters such as Billy D., Hildy and Major Douche woven into the performance footage of the band.
“Being surrounded by so many talented and creative people is an endless source of inspiration. This film only scratches the surface of how deep our proverbial rabbit hole goes. ‘What Is…’ Puscifer is meant to conjure as many questions as it answers,” explained Maynard James Keenan.
Watching this material immediately brought forth memories of the concert I attended in 2011. Again I found myself riveted to the performance unfolding in front of me. It was almost like being there again, even though “there” was a different venue. Amazingly they were able to capture the sound and feel of the live show, flawlessly.
Toward the end of his monologue Keenan states “Life is too short not to create something with every breath we draw.” But it’s not something done with a haphazard approach. Clearly a lot of time and effort, blood and sweat went into putting this memorable production together.
When it’s over you might find yourself again wanting more and, unlike with a live performance, this time you can have it.
