"Thanks. And Sorry: The Chuck Mosley Movie" Announced



Director and Musician Drew Fortier has announced his latest film project, a documentary about the late Faith No More / Bad Brains / Cement / Primitive Race Chuck Mosley. The film was initially conceived as a narrative on the legendary singer and musician's then burgeoning comeback, and Chuck originally agreed to the project through a typically irreverent voicemail.






Drew Fortier (Bang Tango, Zen From Mars) will return to a familiar spot behind the camera in 2018 to direct Thanks. And Sorry: The Chuck Mosley Movie.

While playing a handful of shows on guitar for Chuck Mosley (Faith No More, Bad Brains, Indoria, Primitive Race) in 2017, Drew and Chuck discussed the framework of a documentary about the singer/songwriter’s life and his reemergence on the scene.

“I am incredibly excited to tell Chuck’s story,” said Drew, who also directed 2015’s Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie, “I believe everyone will be able to get something positive out of the finished project of what will be Chuck’s film.”

Chuck passed away unexpectedly on November 9th 2017, a couple days after leaving a voicemail for Drew… in his best Bane impression.
“I've decided to go ahead with the video…I mean, not the video, but the documentary on this one, Chuck Mosley. He seems like a pretty expansive and explosive character. I think he would be perfect for the part of himself…”
Mosley had recently completed sixty-plus dates on his Reintroduce Yourself tour and recorded a solo record with producer Matt Wallace (Maroon Five, Deftones, The Replacements). On November 3rd 2017 his band, Primitive Race, released their sophomore effort Soul Pretender, currently rising up the NACC Radio 200 chart.

The film will be produced by Chuck’s longtime friend/bandmate/babysitter, Douglas Esper, who is also working on a book about their time on the road and in the studio together. “In supporting Drew I hope to give people a glimpse into the beautiful and frustrating mind of one of the most unique, self proclaimed ‘Rock Satellites,’ of all time.”

Drew, Chuck, and Douglas will also all appear in front of the camera in 2018. Drew will appear in the upcoming James L. Edwards horror feature, Her Name was Christa. Chuck is also starring in the short film Like An Open Heart It Shines, written and directed by David Collupy. The film also features Douglas in a role.

Drew and Douglas recently launched, facebook.com/thanksandsorrychuck and fans can contact chuck@mosleyvua.com for the project. They are eager to hear from fans, family, friends, and anyone else willing to share stories, photos, audio, and video of Chuck Mosley.

Spreading The Disease - Voices (Single Review)

'Voices' starts on an effective soft clean vocal intro before the aggressive fierce vocals kick in and features varied vocals throughout keeping it dynamic. The guitar work is hard-hitting especially with ambient and heavy chugging riffs. The delivery and transitions it goes through aided by the vocals add to its frantic vibes which seem appropriate given the nature of the track. This is an intense and killer track which leaves you hungry for the upcoming EP 'Mindcell'.




'Voices' has just been released worldwide through Surgery Records, taken from our forthcoming new EP 'MINDCELL' which is out on April 11th 2019.
