UNKNOWN PASSAGE is a documentary chronicling the live's of Fred and Toody Cole, hero's of Northwest rock scene since the mid 1960's, and Andrew Loomis, who's done everything Keith Richards has done, but with way less money. The movie goes back as far as Fred's first musical foray at the age of 15 as "Deep Soul Cole - the white Stevie Wonder" and moves forward from there through the 60's psych scene, the 70's / early 80's punk scene, the late 80's Country scene and ends with the glorious 16 year long career of Dead Moon. Furiously DIY, these folks built their own Ghost town in Clackamas, made their own records on the legendary lathe that cut Louie Louie, homesteaded deep in the wilds of Canada with just an ax in hand, ran a Portland music store, and raised kids and wrote songs and played gigs all throughout. With Andrew, they formed Dead Moon - the greatest rock band of all time (according to Mississippi Records....millions of Germans and Dutch folks agree)
Fred and Toody will play a live career spanning set after the movie. A rare treat not to be missed.
