Cupid in Oilskins is the soundtrack to director Jose Miguel Contreras’ (aka Salvatore Splattorini) three minute homage to the films of George Romero & Lucio Fulci. Jose’s music video sends up zombie cinema with a tongue in cheek humor and DIY attitude that is BY DIVINE RIGHT.

BAD TITS‘ Bankok Hilton from Garbage Night EP & 7″ (edition of 300) directed by Alex Jones.
