"112 BPM (Beatings Per Minute)"
From the film Only Wounds And Cowards Weep (1985)
Directed by T. Skeeter and Dr. Phurious

One of the precious few Technoir films to address the subject of sexuality in a frank manner, “Only Wounds…” goes a step further by taking a surprisingly casual approach to its depiction of gay men in New York’s vibrant 1970’s club scene. Absent of any didactic posturing, the film paints a gritty but sympathetic portrait of superstar deejay Quentin Kane as he rises to the top of his game. Tricked out with a fiery red coif and a flashy ensemble of tracksuits, Kane is shown as a wild man with an impeccable talent for hyping a crowd. Living only for his audience and the glow of the stage lights, Quentin’s world is turned upside-down when a routine record-dig goes horribly wrong and the bodies begin to pile up like wax platters.

Soon Quentin finds himself the object of not one but three competing assassins who will stop at nothing to silence his music forever. Featuring a kick-ass soundtrack, some of the wildest break-dancing ever shown on-screen, and bizarre uncredited performance by Jack Palance, “Only Wounds…” is a rough but rare Technoir gem – flashy, full of energy, and the only film to be co-written and directed by T. Skeeter and Dr. Phurious, AKA The Deuce Dynamos - the greatest Bronx based hip-hop duo to never release a single record.
