What is Modzilla?
John Schnall and Leila Haddad first met about
ten years ago during a staff meeting at WFMU. Both vying for
highly coveted air slots on the famed station, the two were
instant enemies. After years of sparring and occasional lawsuits,
they decided to bury the hatchet and collaborate on a film score
for an independent filmmaker. Said
filmmaker was so pleased by the work of this
musical team, she hired them to compose two more films scores for
ABSOLUTELY no money! The two, weary of the financial burden of
the pending lawsuits against one another, decided to cash in on
the previously recorded music by beefing it up with more songs
and creating the fraudulent
soundtrack to a phantom film; Welcome To Our
Island, and the band was born. The story behind the name Modzilla
is a very well-guarded secret, so don't push your luck...
