TMP 106 Mike McCarthy Goes Guerrilla

The Memphis underground filmmaker, documentarian, comic book artist, and sculptor behind Guerrilla Monster Films is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his Cramps-endorsed noir classic, “Teenage Tupelo.” This semi-auto-bio-sexploitation-comedy-drama reimagining the director’s origin story is getting the royal treatment, with a new Blu-ray edition, a soundtrack LP, and a book about the movie and the makeshift creative community that came together to make it. Mike has an almost mystical connection to the midcentury pop culture of comic books, drive-in movies and rock and roll. He also has a knack for talking starlets out of their tops. In his words, nudity is the ultimate location. Topics include a new intro, distractions, a blog, a mood swing, Jerry Stiller, Fred Willard, a genetic taint, Tracey’s Bar, reopening, “The Sore Losers,” B movies, Doris Wishman, David F. Friedman, Elvis as inspiration, Memphis, Tupelo, self-mythologizing, movie posters, art bootcamp, Scopitones, the Antenna club, casting, art school, leaving home, a comedy obit, “Native Son,” a sculpture, Amy LaVere, a family reunion, historic preservation, classic rock, Fleetwood Mac, the Faces, Kristen Hobbs, the Cramps at Sun Studio, a legacy, willpower, “Cadavera,” a location scam, the MGM backlots, Dr. Nick, an autopsy, death of the dream, making fun, an art school documentary, and much more.
