Jesse Dayton On Captain Clegg



Jesse Dayton:

"To Avoid Any Capt. Clegg & The Night Creatures Scandals…Here’s The Real Skinny On How It All Came About W/ Myself And Rob Zombie And What I Think It Will Be Like In The Movie: First Of All, Regardless Of What Any Naysayers Tell You, This Movie Is Not A “Remake”…It’s The Continuum Story Of Micheal Myers Seen Thru The Eyes Of Director/Writer Rob Zombie….In My Humble Opinion, And I’ve Been On The Inside Of This Movie And Have Seen Big Parts Of The Film Come Together….Compared To The Last One, It’s Gonna Be Waaaay More Hardcore And Disturbingly Scary….For Example: My Good Friend Lew Temple, (Who Played The Rapist Asylum Guard In RZs’ 1st Halloween And Was Also Adam Banjo In The Devils Rejects), Called Me The Other Day To Tell Me He Heard From Several Key Actors And Camera-Guys That “Rob Is Really Taking H2 To A Whole Other Level Of Horror-Insanity And How Stoked We Must Be To Be In It”…That’s A Solid Source Amigos, That’s Insider Buzz…."

"Now As Far As The Phantom Jam…There’s A Scene In The Movie, Where There’s A Concert Called The Phantom Jam….Captain Clegg & The Night Creatures Was Just A Name That RZ Thought Would Be Cool For The Band That’s In This Scene…He Could Of Got Just About ANY Band In The World To Do This….Metal, Punk, Some Poser Rockstars That Wanna Be In A Movie, Who-F’in-Ever?…..But I Had Already Worked On The Original Banjo & Sullivan Record W/ Him For The Devils Rejects So He Asked Me…Jesse Dayton From Texas Ya’ll And Have Played Guitar & Recorded W/ Everyone From Waylon Jennings To The Supersuckers….We Riffed On It And Talked About Possible Influences…RZ Would Say “How Bout Buck Owens Or Iggy?”….I Would Say “I Love The Sonics Or Johnny Horton!” ….RZ Said “Make It Girl Crazy”…I Said “Then We Have To Have Go-Go Dancers”….And To Be Frank, We We’re Just Having A Blast With The Whole Thing,(I Later Wrote Most Of These Songs In A Haunted Suite At The LaMothe Hotel On Esplanade St. In The French Quarter In New Orleans)…."

"RZ Called Over About 300 People,(They Were More Than You’re Regular Extras…This Crew Was Made Up Of Mostly The Elites Of The Horror Scene From Atlanta),And Had All Of Them Dressed Immaculatley As Halloween Party Ghouls And Famous Scary Monsters Thanks To Make-Up Genius Wayne Toth…Don’t Wanna Give It Away So I’m Not Gonna Go Into Specifics About The Set Where He Staged This Whole Thing, But It Looks Like We’re Playin In The Worst-Creepiest Nightmare You’ve Ever Had…All 400 Of Us, (Including The Crew), Worked Two 15 Hrs. Days On JUST This Scene And No One Bitched Or Whined Once…Anyhooch, Now There’s A Group Of “Phantom Jam Suvivors” That’s Popped Up Online,(W/ Crew And Extras), And It’s Just Great Hearing All The Stories Of How They Made It To The Set And How They Survived The Shoot…We Also Filmed Some Clegg Stuff In A Civil War Graveyard That Was Very Cool….But Clegg Is A Small Part Of The Movie…Zombie Throws This In Just Because He Loves Inventing Freak Show Musical Acts….It’s Cooler Than Say “Tito & The Tarantulas” In From Dusk Til Dawn Cause It’s Just More Hardcore And Nightmarish….Also, We’ve Built A Whole Alter-Ego Record Around This Character And Rob Has Decided To Release A Whole Capt Clegg And The Night Creatures Record Featuring Music From The Movie…..Rob And I Are Putting This Record Out Together Combining Both Of Our Teams….The Record Will Officially Come Out On Zombie A Go-Go/Stag Records Aug. 28th, The Week Of The Movie….Okay, That’s The Real Skinny…Now Be Prepared To Hear New-Raw Hybrids Of Music While Having The Living Shit Scared Out Of You!"

"Who the HELL is interrupting my kung-fu?"

Rock Against Torture

From Think Progress:

"In 2004, documents were released showing that FBI agents witnessed abusive treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay that included “detainees being chained to the floor for extended periods of time and being subjected to extreme heat, extreme cold or ‘extremely loud rap music.’” In fact, the use of loud music as “torture lite” has been a common tool employed at not just Guantanamo, but also at prisons in Afghanistan and Iraq.

"Last year, a coalition of musicians, along with British human rights charity Reprieve, created an anti-torture initiative called “Zero db” that sought to end the use of music in torture. Now, a new coalition of international musicians, including Trent Reznor, R.E.M., Pearl Jam, Jackson Browne, Rage Against the Machine, Rosanne Cash, Billy Bragg and the Roots, is launching a new protest against the use of music used during torture and are joining the National Campaign to Close Guantanamo.

"As part of their protest, the musicians are supporting an effort seeking the declassification of all secret government records pertaining to how music was used in interrogations. From the group’s press release:

“At Guantanamo, the U.S. government turned a jukebox into an instrument of torture,” said Thomas Blanton, executive director of the National Security Archive, a freedom of information act organization that is assisting the musicians in seeking the documents. “The musicians and the public have the right to know how an expression of popular culture was transformed into an enhanced interrogation technique.” [...]

"On behalf of the campaign, the National Security Archive is filing a series of FOIA requests today seeking still-secret documentation from CIA, U.S. Special Operations Command, and FBI, among other agencies, pertaining to how the music was chosen and the specific role it played in interrogations of detainees at the base.

"For the musicians, Guantanamo is a symbol of the legacy of torture the Bush administration left behind. “As long as Guantanamo stays open, America’s legacy around the world will continue to be the torture that went on there,” said R.E.M. in a statement. “Guantanamo may be Dick Cheney’s idea of America, but it’s not mine,” said Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello. “The fact that music I helped create was used in crimes against humanity sickens me – we need to end torture and close Guantanamo now.”

“When we found out that music was being used as part of the torture going on at Guantanamo, shackling and beating people – we were angry,” said The Roots. “Just as we wouldn’t be caught dead allowing Dick Cheney to use our music for his campaigns, you can be damn sure, we wouldn’t allow him to use it to torture other human beings. Congress needs to shut Guantanamo down.”
