Me And My Rhythmbox, from the low-budget movie Liquid Sky.
Me … me and my … me and my … me and my rhythm box … me and my rhythm box … are you jealous fox? (folks?) are you jealous fox? … my rhythm box is sweet … never forgets the beat … it never eats … it never shits … it never sleeps … it only beats … it’s always high … so am I … do you wanna know why? … it … it is … preprogrammed … so what … so what … so what … who of your friends is not? … who of your friends is not? who’s not?
Liquid Sky is a strange movie about intergalactic sex aliens and coked out people in the 80’s.
It’s an interesting cult film and it features a unique synth-heavy soundtrack!
My favourite scene from my favourite movie – Liquid Sky. Adrian Sings in the club while Jimmy’s looking for the Drugs in Margaret’s room.
[Both roles played by Anne Carlisle!]
The producer of the film took full credit for everything they really did not do anything but put up the money. He and his wife ( who got the credit for the costumes) needed green cards and that was the way for them to get them.
Anne Carlisle ( wrote the entire script ) and Julia Morton were responsible for almost everything. Iit was Jjulia that brought in marcel and nanxy from cinandre, who did the hair and make up.
The star of this bizarre and violent film is Anne Carlisle, a fomer LaRocka model who has a screenwriting credit and plays the dual roles of New Wave fashion plates Margaret and Jimmy. ´ I had already experimented with changing gender,´ says Carlisle, perhaps the only woman in film annals to give herself a blow job, ´ dressing as a guy just as a provocative thing. Slava Tsukerman saw me going out in these costumes and thought that a UFO would find them attractive.´ To cinch the role, Carlisle dressed up as a boy and escorted Tsukerman to the New York club Danceteria – where she then proceeded toland a female date.
Anne Carlisle went onto minor parts in Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) and Crocodile Dundee (1986) and played the lead in Larry Cohen’s Blind Alley/Perfect Strangers (1987), but has since vanished from sight, although she did apparently write a novelization for Liquid Sky. It is a genuine shame that Carlisle has never gone onto any other parts of any note as she certainly has talent. The idea of aliens coming to harvest humanity for the opiates in the brain was also borrowed for the entertaining action film Dark Angel/I Come in Peace (1990)..
