Watch a rough edit of Jef Mertens' as yet uncompleted documentary on the long running noise outfit.

Mertens says: "After the cancellation of the Borbetomagus European tour – which would have allowed me to finish getting the footage I needed – this documentary was put on hold, though not given up in any way. I decided to share this rough edit of part one of A Pollock Of Sound. It's not the final version but it will be part of the film in some form. The edit consists of interviews with Thurston Moore, Chris Corsano, Jason Gross and Byron Coley sharing their stories involving Borbetomagus. The live Borbetomagus footage was shot in the Netherlands in 2010 and in the US and Canada in 2011."
