While his bandmates are on the road with Electron, Disco Biscuits’ guitarist Jon “Barber” Gutwillig is busy with a new project. He has been tapped as “The Music Man” for the upcoming “popumentary” BadPuss. The movie follows a fictional all-girl band of the same name. It has been self-described as “a story of misguidance, hedonistic lesbians and leopard print bikinis.” Barber has gathered up musicians Steve Molitz (Particle), Clay Parnell, (Brothers Past) and Dave Butler to help work on original music for the project. There is currently a Kickstarter campaign going in order to raise a $25,000 goal to help produce the film. There are several different reward packages available at different levels of contribution. You can contribute to the Kickstarter here.
Barber has also posted a video talk about his contributions to the project here
