The cursed legend of the Bilbao group Cancer Moon, Iberian pioneers of noise rock, and especially that of the duo formed by their mysterious singer, Josetxo Anitua, and guitarist Jon Zamarripa.


Cancer Moon always moved with firm step... in no man's land. At the end of the ‘80s, when Basque radical rock was losing steam and the Spanish indie scene had not yet been codified, its sound was one of the most peculiar and furious ever made in these parts. And that of the most stubborn minority, for pioneers rarely strike gold. Under the influence of Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Stooges and Birthday Party, those who saw them live in their seven-year career speak of "mystical experiences" and "exorcisms". And all this is assembled in a documentary that interrogates former members of the group, and their nearest and dearest, wields authoritative opinions (Nacho Vegas, Maite "Mursego", journalist Julio Ruiz) and squeezes TV footage and live takes dry. It never loses sight of the nuts and bolts: how two musical beasts, who are no longer with us and who deserved this tribute, fed each other musically and personally, the free-spirited guitarist Jon Zamarripa and the singer Josetxo Anitua, a timid and elusive fella, who transformed on stage and shot death stares that those on the receiving end still haven’t forgotten.
