"GHOST ON THE HIGHWAY"
A Portrait of Jeffrey Lee Pierce and The Gun Club
"Ghost on the Highway" is the provocative new feature documentary
examines and celebrates the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce in all his
shit-stirring glory. The film is a two-fingered salute in honor of
legendary band The Gun Club, one of the most notorious and
incendiary in the
history of American popular music.
"Ghost on the Highway" boasts comprehensive interviews with ex-Gun
members Kid Congo Powers, Ward Dotson, Terry Graham, Jim Duckworth
Pop, as well as observations and revelations from Pierce intimates
Dave Alvin ("Blasters"), John Doe ("X"), Henry Rollins ("Black Flag;"
"Rollins Band"), Mike Martt ("Tex and The Horseheads") and Peter Case
("Plimsouls"). Lemmy Kilmister ("Motorhead") makes a special
an aim to excoriate the record industry.
"Ghost" is directed by Kurt Voss and edited by Andrew R. Powell.
Powell also act as producers on the highly anticipated film, which
new insights into the volatile psyche of bandleader Jeffrey Lee
died at age 37 after a life of self-abuse which was, by turns, both
and tragic.Still criminally undervalued, the Gun Club were the first
to fuse punk and blues, thus paving the way for more high profile
contemporary acts like The White Stripes.The release of "Ghost on the
Highway" marks the ten year anniversary of Jeffrey Lee Pierce's death
plus this film was initially based on the article I wrote, or at
least it was one major input I was told. Probably grew away from
that though. I don't know, hope I got some form of acknowledgment.
