With a few days left to pledge, we at SLAMXHYPE would like to introduce you all to a project i’ve known about and has been in the works for many years. Recently with the help of many supporters and now kickstarter, Baltimore Maryland based, Small Axe Films are in the process of crafting and finishing a compelling documentary on legendary punk rock reggae singer, Paul “HR” Hudson. Most notable for his time with legendary punk band, Bad Brains, the documentary is an in-depth look into HR’s life and the controversy behind his career. Read insert below for more info:
“HR “Finding Joseph I” is a feature documentary currently in production, chronicling the eccentric life and struggles of punk rock reggae singer, Paul “HR” Hudson, a.k.a. Joseph I. The charismatic frontman’s energetic and explosive live performances helped pioneer hardcore punk rock with the Bad Brains, one of the most influential bands to rise out of the 1980′s. HR’s heavy devotion to the Rastafarian faith guided him in a spiritual direction leaving the band several times to explore his love for reggae music as the solo artist, HR Human Rights. Over the years, the Bad Brains have reunited several times only to struggle with the unpredictable singer. HR’s increasingly strange and abnormal behavior has left many convinced that he his suffering from psychological troubles while others believe he is still living out his journey as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and roll history!”
Having met HR in person and knowing his importance to music history, i’ve been in full support of this project. For those interested in being apart of this legends history, pledge as soon as possible.
