In 2006 a guitarist join the band for the recordings of the first 7 inch,recorded in a refregerate cell with a 4 tracks and released the same year by A Fistful of Records(Holland):"A-side Dolls Come In is a slow,moody,mean floor crawlerreminding you of about everything negative or dark sounding record in the Crypt catalog,but without leaving me with the possibility to refer to this or that band...desperate vocals,moaning organ,trashy distorted guitar....you've been there so you feel at home but still...b-side Garsin continues in the same vein,only a little less prominent.keep your eyes peeled folks,this was my live surprise of 2007 so far and i really think we're onto something here." Sam Geert s -up yours magazine - Belgium ."After several compilations and gigs in France Croatia and U.k.(also opening acts for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion,Lost Sounds...)the trio put out a new 7 inch released by Nasty Poduct(France)and hit Europe again for a month,performing in clubs,squats galleries and streets.In 2007 they record 5 songs in the same refregerate cell and the italian label No-fi records releases them for a limited cassette series:"Here we are with the second limited edition tape from the underground roman label No fi recordings.These Movie Star Junkies seems to be ready to go down to the deepest and darkest side of rock n roll,with a claustrophobic sound that clarely reminds the Scientists and the Chrome Cranks,you can easily find the influence of these 2 bands listening to Black Caraibi,Requiem pour un con by Serge Gainsbourg,Subliminal Man .the visionary s/t and the kinda n.y.sound The Sink Song are enough to realise how unique this band is in the italian music scene.

I was angry with my friend: I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow.


Tales of ordinary madness, dirty love, illness and sorrow continues and brings us down to the deepest and darkest side of Rock n Roll. Voodoo Rhythm Records is proud to announce the brand new 2nd album of Italians greatest blues punk combo, the MOVIE STAR JUNKIES. The opus is called "A POISON TREE" and its an intense and devilish journey through timeless and sinister murder ballads. Noisy and gloomy tunes, some altered visions from the holy inquisition to WILLIAM BLAKE.
We don't talking about his "Songs of Innocence", Its industrial, its rock n roll marching music from the 14THcentury creating claustrophobic sounds ...To understand it you have to have an appreciation for the dark side of life...
The energy and anger of that strange and familiar sound appears not just by the length of their songs. Two minutes wasn't enough to create this absorbing music and it starts with frantic surf guitars and a marching drum beat attended by that incredible angry and self destructive vocalist who sings about getting buried under a tree, and that tree burns thru the hole record until it changes in to the amazing "a Poison Tree", a poem which was written by William Blake himself.
Their first album "Melville" has been reviewed and appreciated as one of the best records in 2008 all over Europe and America. They toured Europe several times and came back from a succesful U.S tour where they shared stages with some of the best bands around, like the Oh Sees, The Lamps, Blank Dogs and Demon's Claws, they also recorded a live show for New Yorks famous WFMU Radio. It was clear that another liason would happend soon. No one could stop them, so after their return to Italy they produced their second amazing album, which one more time bears traces of the amazing work by Outside Inside Studios in Venice
The Bands live set its full Farfisa drenched madness, bloody chords, angry vocals that bring the crowd into an obscure and moody sound and their -fucked up attitude- reminds you of bands such as Demon's claws, the Black Lips or the early Cramps.

desperate vocals, moaning organ and trashy distorted guitar. influenced by the Birthday Party or the Gun Club, combined with soft touches of incredible strange exotica rhythms, easy listening and surf, plus a touch of trash. Or in other words, here's another typical Voodoo Rhythm band.


The MOVIE STAR JUNKIES wanted to do a concept album for Herman Melville (Moby Dick) and all kind of stories about shipwrecks, like illness, religion dirty love and more. King Automatic found this band in Torino, Italy. This combo is very influenced by the Birthday Party or the Gun Club combined with a soft touch of incredible strange Exotica Rhythms Easy Listening and Surf and a nuance of TRASH – typically for a VOODOO RHYTHM band.Formed in 2005 as a duo they released a single on "A Fistful of Records" (Netherlands), on "Nasty Product" (France) and on "No-fi records" (Italy). Slow, moody, mean floor crawler will remind you of everything negative or of a dark sounding record in the Crypt Catalogue, but without leaving with the possibility to refer to this or that band...desperate vocals, moaning organ, trashy distorted guitar.
MOVE STAR JUNKIES were performing in clubs, squats galleries and in the streets of your city. They were supporting Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and the Lost Sounds.
After listening to this 12 amazing tracks you'll feel like pushed in the year of 1634 and you are on a big boat and got homesick and ready to die but you have to fight. This is exactly what this album gives to you.
Buy this record and become a MOVIE STAR JUNKIE junkie.
