better than this.
“the opening lick of Sonic Reducer is the most amazing piece of music there is. It dredges up every memory of great nights in punk bars, very early mornings stumbling home, and making really bad choices”.
The Stooges, addiction, revelation, and the Stiff Little Fingers will kick you in the teeth with this collaborative work. Punk rock sets the tone as four lives are intertwined through their relationships to addiction, abuse, longing and acceptance. Based on true stories collected by director and writer Isaac Robinson while growing up in New Zealand, better than this. is a collective creation with an unyielding gaze at the inexorable link drugs and music have in these characters' lives.
