DIE-NASTY! 2009/2010

Their credo was Obscure, their God was Inattentive…they called themselves


In 1951 Ridge Wyatt (Jeff Haslam) lived wild and free on the road as part of The Die Hards, an infamous biker gang that tore across the continent spreading vague anxiousness, indifferent horror, and so-so poetry. There was cell-block terror “Chippy” (Leona Brausen), tough-as-tar “Black Betty” (Sheri Somerville), soul sisters “Scar” (Stephanie Wolfe) and “Nails” (Belinda Cornish), coltish nightmare “Pony Soda” (Matt Alden), road taught sweetheart “Candy Cave” (Davina Stewart) and the boss-man of ‘em all “Beef Manpile” (Donovan Workun). Then Ridge fell in love, went straight, joined the establishment… quit the gang. Now it’s 1960. And the past has come back to haunt. His wife is dead and his daughter… KIDNAPPED!

But Ridge doesn’t turn to the cops… he turns back to THE DIE HARDS.

Chopper engines and bongo drums…

It’s camp, it’s cult, it’s the wild wild west on wheels
