Quote of the Week: Surf Advisory

From the San Francisco Chronicle review of the documentary film Surfwise:

Advisory: This film contains profanity and strong sexual material and a really unfortunate industrial electronic tune that sounds too much like Greg Brady covering a Nine Inch Nails song.
The film was directed by Doug Pray. The review (at sfgate.com) is by Peter Hartlaub. I haven’t seen Surfwise yet, so I’m not sure which song among those listed at movies.yahoo.com is the offending one. The quote reminded me that there’s some elegant Erik Satie, “Trois Gymnopedies,” in an earlier surf film, Riding Giants (2004) directed by skateboard figure Stacy Peralta (Dogtown and Z-Boys), and the performance was by Peralta’s son, Austin Peralta, who must have been about 13 or 14 years old when the track was recorded.
