Music Driven presents a special screening of THE COLOR OF NOISE featuring a Q&A with director Eric Robel and Amphetamine Reptile Records founder Tom Hazelmyer (aka Haze XXL), moderated by Noisey’s Fred Pessaro.
The Color of Noise is a full-length documentary about the artist Haze XXL (Tom Hazelmyer) and his label Amphetamine Reptile Records. The film highlights many of the label’s bands (The Melvins, Helmet, Unsane, Boss Hog and Today Is The Day) and visual artists (Shepard Fairey, Frank Kozik, Coop and Ed Fotheringham) through mini bio-pics weaved throughout Tom’s story. The Color of Noise is an exceptional look at the integrity of the American underground starting in the late 80’s through the mid 90’s, specifically targeting forerunners of the grunge movement, the collision of punk rock and printmaking, and beyond.
