Baltimore superstar weirdo Dan Deacon is set to release his much-talked-about DVD, Ultimate Reality.
The press release says:
“Ultimate Reality is a collaborative performance by Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche that combines an intense musical composition for electronics and two live drummers (from the bands Ponytail and Video Hippos) with a psychedelic montage of Arnold Schwarzenegger films that is projected at a monumental scale.
