The Underground is Alive and Well!

Jad and David Fair are Half Japanese, "The World's Greatest Underground Band" and the most unlikely pair of rock heroes as can be imagined. They play their hearts out on rooftops and nursing home back porches while overzealous fans and rock critics plot the next Beatlemania that never comes. Featuring new performances by the power duo and their musical co-conspirators, "The Band That Would Be King" is as wildly eccentric as the subject it captures. It takes you on a humorous journey to the birthplace of Punk Rock, a world where MTV, Rolling Stone Magazine, and the Major Record Labels don't exist and anarchic teenage spirit and raw unadulterated passion reign king. A place where Jad and David Fair's "Love Songs & Monster Songs" are the sweetest distilled essence of all rock has been and is meant to be.
