The Internet has unearthed another rare ska gem! A rare and unreleased full length indie film from the early 1990's titled "Steal Away' directed by Jack Sherman and staring Dan Vitale (in a classic Bouncing Souls t-shirt), Vinnie Nobile and their Bim Skala Bim bandmates has just surfaced.
Even better, the film includes a sweet soundtrack of notable Boston-based ska music by Bim Skala Bim, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Steady Earnest, bop Harvey and more. The film synopsis below:
"An underground saga that weaves the Boston Music scene into a semi-operatic, neo-realistic love/hate struggle. Dan, (Dan Vitale of Bim Skala Bim and Steady Earnest) is a poor, down-on-his-luck singer/activist spurned by his girlfriend Karen (Karen Moskow.)
The star-crossed couple battle it out over many difficult issues like dominance, quality time, and the price of true artistic expression. Karen's father, Police Sgt. James Goldman, (Mr.Jimmy Miller- rockstar producer of The Rolling Stones, Traffic, Blind Faith, and Motorhead) has never liked Dan or the idea that he has dated his daughter for the last three years. Tempers begin to boil as Karen's new boyfriend Matt, (Ted Vitale, WHAT Theatre Wellfleet, MA) and the Goldmans realize that Dan may have something to do with Karen's untimely disapearance, and the search is on.
The awesome punk/ska and reggae soundtrack features performances and music from many of Boston's most popular bands: Bim Skala Bim at Fort Apache Studio, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at TT The Bears Place, Dogzilla at The Paradise, Human Nature at the (now defunct) Channel Club, Steady Earnest and many more!"Watch the full film in its entirety for the first time below!
