I first heard of Jon Moritsugu in 2003, when a good friend of mine was enrolled in his film class at University of Hawaii, subsequently my old band ended up playing a show with his band Tiny Believers (comprised of Jon on Electric Guitar, and his wife/leading lady on bass, backed by a drum machine) I believe the music in the clip above were all composed by Jon himself.
If you are familiar with his film work, Jon Moritsugu is the man responsible for his american underground cult films such as, Mod Fuck Explosion, Fame Whore, and Mommy Mommy Where's My Brain.
Some of them are now available on youtube for your viewing pleasure.
He is working on releasing some of his older works on DVD, which were shot on 16mm and were previously available on VHS only.
