BANG TANGO DOCUMENTARY THEATRICAL TRAILER POSTED ONLINE:
80's rockers Bang Tango have a documentary in the works, tentatively called The Bang Tango Movie, is being wrapped up and the film's first theatrical trailer has been posted online.
The film, slated for release later this year, takes an inside look into the band and features interviews with the current Joe LeSte fronted line-up as well as former members Mark Knight, Kyle Kyle, Kyle Stevens and Tigg Ketler.
"The movie is still being pieced together, I have just about everything I need for it," videographer Drew Fortier tells SleazeRoxx.com. "I
am extremely happy with how everything is going. It has been such an
experience and a joy shooting everything -- over 100 hours of footage
that I have gone through, logged, etc. Now is the hard part, editing
this monster together. But bottom line, I hope this movie will be able
to reach not just fans of the band, but also people who are fans of a
cool story and just fans of being entertained."
Regarding the possible release date of the film Fortier said, "I'd
like to pull an Axl Rose and just say "soon is the word", but I'm not
trying to make Chinese Democracy here. I'd like to say I'll be done
editing in about a month, and after that I'll be trying to find an
outlet for this thing -- hopefully some film festivals."
When asked if the film could lead to a reunion of the original Bang Tango band Fortier commented, "I
think it may pull on some of the original member's heart strings, just
reliving everything -- I mean, this movie is pretty much a documented
tale of their past and achievements. There's still some loose ends to
their career which is addressed in the film and I think this whole thing
might just reignite something. It would be the most flattering thing as
a filmmaker if they did... but of course, if not, everybody has their
own careers right now and are very happy. Joe LeSte's got his Bang
Tango, Mark Knight has his Unsung Heroes project (which also includes
Tigg Ketler), Kyle Kyle has Mona Lisa Overdrive, and Kyle Stevens is
about to put a trio together. So everyone is still very active in music
