Revenge, murder, automobiles. The post-apocalyptic future depicted in Mad Max hearkens back to a more medieval, violent existence. Set in a dystopic Australia, a policeman (Max played by a young Mel Gibson) sets out to avenge the deaths of his partner, wife, and child who were murdered by a motorcycle gang in retaliation for the death of their leader. Following our anti-hero through his undoing into madness, Mad Max takes audiences on a wild ride through this strange, yet recognizable, future.
Morricone Youth is a New York City band formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music. Record release party for the release of Morricone Youth’s Mad Max LP on Country Club records to follow in Nitehawk’s bar, Lo-Res.
