The title of LEE BAINS III AND THE GLORY FIRES' debut album comes from Bains mishearing an old hymn as a child. In the soft accents of his elders around Birmingham, Alabama, "There is a balm in Gilead" sounded a lot like "There is a bomb." It fits, really. The Glory Fires learned to construct music in the churches of their childhoods, and learned to destroy it in the punk clubs of their youths.

As much Wilson Pickett as Fugazi, as much the Stooges as the Allman Brothers, Birmingham, Alabama's Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires have brought rock'n'roll to bear on their own experience and their own place. On 'THERE IS A BOMB IN GILEAD,' they deconstruct the music of the Deep South, strip it down and reassemble it, to make a righteous ruckus that sits at the vanguard of the vernacular.

Fully Loaded, chronicles the misadventures of two feisty single mom's (comedians, Paula Killen and Lisa
Orkin) as they discover on a rare evening out, that it’s not so easy to hook up with a total stranger
(Dweezil Zappa) anymore. This "van-centric" dark comedy, offers viewers an opportunity to eavesdrop
on how “real” women genuinely feel about men, relationships, the culture and themselves. This
picture, shot largely on the road, takes the audience on a journey in and around late-night Los Angeles
and features a dynamic soundtrack, comprised of both cutting edge alternative tunes and iconic

Writer Shira Piven and Actress Lisa Orkin join Twisted South to talk about this film and their kickstarter project designed to finish the process of bringing this film to a theater near you.
