Jagwar Ma is a musical project, est. Nov 2011 by Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield.

It all starts with the single “Come Save Me”. A celebration of love and loss, lifted by human harmonies only to be sliced apart by the sharp contemporary programming of the song acting as dagger to the tale. This juxtaposition of voice and electronics being a signature of Jagwar Ma.

Their collaboration started in 2010 at a performance by FLRL, the Sydney based kraut-experiment that was “a band without members” and a stage of revolving musicians. Their musical history already well known to each other at the time, Jono from the band Lost Valentinos and Gabriel from Ghostwood.

Those shared stages at FLRL shows gave way to studio jams and home recordings, radio frequency manipulation, TR808 patterns, MPCs loops, vintage amps and a treasured 7 inch collection. Jagwar found a soul in and amongst all that electricity. Described as sounding like J-Dilla playing Primal Scream covering the Beatles.

In Australia “Come Save Me” has been embraced by Triple J who spun it to the #1 most played spot on the station. In the UK it was released through a new 7′s label started by two A&Rs from the legendary XL Records. In the US the song finds high rotation on airwaves of the lauded KCRW and the bands signs with the Windish Agency.

Currently the band is ensconced in a castle in France bouncing beats through the dungeons, singing through its hallowed hallways and breathing life into their debut album for the summer of 2012. The first ever festival appearance in Australia for Jagwar Ma will be the 2013 Big Day Out!

Eraserhood Tonight > Neil Breen’s FATEFUL FINDINGS (Philly Premiere)

Saturday, July 26, 2014
Two screenings: 7:30 and 10:00
$10 admission, no refunds or exchanges

After months of inquiries and requests, PhilaMOCA is pleased to announce the Philadelphia Premiere of cult sensation FATEFUL FINDINGS. Already a midnight movie staple in art houses and hip cinemas across the nation, the latest film from Las Vegas real estate agent turned filmmaker/actor Neil Breen is a genre-defying effort of lunatic proportions that will be a surefire hit amongst fans of THE ROOM, GETEVEN, and other masterpieces of the modern outsider film genre.

Synopsis:
“It’s a magical day” are the words scribbled onto the notebook of Dylan’s childhood girlfriend as they discover what seems to be a mystical pendant buried under a mushroom in the forest. Years later (thirty or so for Dylan, maybe fifteen for his attractive childhood sweetheart), Dylan has a master’s degree in computer science and is an acclaimed novelist, living with his pill-popping girlfriend in a modest apartment. A brutal car accident reignites Dylan’s paranormal abilities and fuels his ambition as a covert hacker to expose shocking government secrets. As the spectral presence increases, Dylan’s relationship with his current girlfriend crumbles, and the passion between him and his old flame grows more intense, and more dangerous. Fateful Findings delivers a knockout combination of completely absurd actions and reactions, deadpan dialogue from socially inept characters, and ghostly special effects reminiscent of the early ’90s children’s show Ghostwriter. The bizarre dry humor found in this low-budget, genre-defying film, paired with its penchant for outrageous scenes of violence, may very well create a cult following for the incomparable Neil Breen. (SIFF 2013)

FATEFUL FINDINGS is the latest film from filmmaker/actor/architect/racecar driver Neil Breen. His previous work includes 2005′s terrorist action thriller DOUBLE DOWN and the almost unclassifiable 2009 surrealist drama I AM HERE….NOW.

“An oddball, lunatic masterpiece and we do mean masterpiece.” – AUSTIN.COM

“Full of heart and special vision, one of the most bravura conclusions in the history of cinema one of the most unique experiences you will ever have and without a doubt the next cult classic.” – BADASS DIGEST

“Wonderful…David Lynch meets Tommy Wiseau.” – SEATTLE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

“May be the best cine-thing you will see all year.” – TORONTO AFTER DARK 2014
