Eraserhead and The Eraserheads

It took the better part of two days of stopping and starting but I finally finished watching David Lynch's Eraserhead.  In some ways this movie screams for a Mystery Science Theater or Rifftrax take on it while at other points there are some truly beautiful/disturbing visuals that justify this films cult status.  I don't believe the film had a proper trailer at it's release in 1977 but here is a fan made trailer that will give you an idea of what you'll experience watching this film.

While searching around for clips/commentary to the film I discovered a band called The Eraserheads from the Phillipines who were very popular in the 1990's.  As you might imagine it is super catchy, chorus heavy rock...which is right up my alley.
