John Bechdel is known as “the invisible man on the keys” for many bands, mainly industrial-metal acts, like Ministry, Prong, Fear Factory, Killing Joke, Murder Inc, Ascension Of The Watchers and False Icons.
Framed as a “day-in-the-life” of 36-hours on tour in Ministry from the meet & greet before playing The Fillmore in D.C. to leaving New York City after playing Irving Plaza, this documentary is a thrill ride through the life of John, those in and connected to his life and career; the world travelers and those behind the scenes.
“Killing The Joke: The John Bechdel story” features also exclusive personal interviews with Al Jourgensen [Ministry, Revolting Cocks] , Burton C. Bell [Fear Factory] , Alison Bechdel [FUN HOME / award winning writer] , Greta Brinkman [L7, Pigface, Debbie Harry, Moby] , Charlie Clouser [Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson] , Martin Atkins [Public Image Limited, Killing Joke] , Sean Roberts [Wax Trax! / TVT Records] and others.
