More Real Folk Blues: The Missing Album

More Real Folk Blues: The Missing Album is an album by blues musician John Lee Hooker, recorded in Chicago in 1966 at the same sessions for The Real Folk Blues but not released by the Chess label until 1991. AllMusic reviewer Bill Dahl stated: "Produced by Ralph Bass in 1966 but not issued by Chess at the time, More Real Folk Blues was unearthed by MCA only a few years back. It's no masterpiece, but deserved release in its day – backed by Burns and a Chicago rhythm section that copes as well as can be expected with Hooker's singular sense of timing". All compositions credited to John Lee Hooker "This Land Is Nobody's Land" – 4:31 "Deep Blue Sea" – 3:35 "Nobody Knows" – 4:24 "Mustang Sally & GTO" – 4:38 "Lead Me" – 4:44 "Catfish" – 7:25 "I Can't Quit You Baby" – 3:27 "Want Ad Blues" – 6:09 "House Rent Blues" – 3:49 John Lee Hooker – guitar, vocals Lafayette Leakepiano, organ Eddie Burns – guitar Other unidentified musicians – bass, tambourine Fred Belowdrums

Mum & Dad

Mum & Dad is a 2008 British horror film by director Steven Sheil. Its premiere was on 22 August 2008 during the London FrightFest Film Festival. One day it was shown during the Fantasy Filmfest in Germany; the film is the directorial debut of Steven Sheil. The film begins at Heathrow Airport, where a Polish immigrant named Lena Malley is working a shift as a cleaner. While there, her colleague Birdie helps her to clean the toilets; the two begin to talk and Lena reveals that she lives alone and doesn't keep in touch with her family. Birdie introduces Lena to her adopted brother Elbie, who works at the airport and is a mute. Lena tells Birdie. While talking, Lena notices scars on Birdie's arm. At the end of the shift Lena misses her bus so Birdie tells her that her dad will drive Lena home if they walk to Birdie's house. Upon arriving at the house Lena is injected with a syringe, she wakes up tied to a chair to the sound of screaming coming from another room. Moments Mum and Dad enter the room and introduce themselves.

Mum tells Lena. Lena is unable to respond because of the injection she received earlier and Mum proceeds to inject her with a sedative; when she wakes up again Mum begins carving marks into her back. Lena is unable to speak, Mum tells her to not try to talk, she gives Lena another injection, Lena falls asleep. She wakes up tied to a frame. Mum tells her that she wanted another girl to live there. Mum pierces Lena's skin with some metal and carves some marks into her back. Following this incident Lena is taken to see Dad who tells her that in his house she will follow his rules At breakfast, the family are watching pornography. Lena makes an escape attempt but Dad grabs her and Elbie drags her back to the table. Birdie takes Lena through her chores. Back in her room, Lena hears Dad watching her through the keyhole. Over the following days Lena is humiliated and tortured by Mum and Dad for no particular reason while Birdie and Elbie attempt to get her in more trouble. Lena finds and hides a mobile phone but is caught and put on heavier sedation as a consequence.

A few days Lena catches the attention of a man outside but is seen by Dad who drags her into his torture room, puts her in a suitcase and orders Elbie to hit it with a hammer. Meanwhile, the man enters the house but Mum is waiting and suffocates him with bubble wrap; the family dismember the man and make Lena kiss his severed head. They proceed to cook the man's appendages as sausages and eat them; as further punishment Lena spends. The following night Lena manages to break free from the restraints of her bedroom while the family is sleeping, she makes her way to the torture room and finds a staircase up to an attic, where she finds a mentally ill girl in a bed. The girl begins to struggle but Lena consoles her. In another room she finds a man, being restrained, he too begins to struggle getting her caught but calms him down and finds a weapon; the next morning, Birdie tells her it's Christmas. She goes downstairs to find the man crucified on the wall, the mentally ill girl in a chair. Dad tells Lena that he knows she saw the girl.

He explains that the girl is his daughter and that she was a "spastic" because the umbilical cord got wrapped around her neck during birth and he had to bite it off with his teeth, implying that the birth didn't occur under medical supervision. The family proceeds to open a series of inappropriate Christmas presents. However, Mum neglected to buy a present for Dad so she tells him that he can "have Lena for Christmas". Dad arrives in Lena's room wearing a dress and makeup and telling Lena that he is "Mum" before attempting to sexually assault her. Previous to this and unbeknown to Dad, Elbie had taken pity on Lena and left Lena's handcuffs loose allowing Lena to stab Dad with the weapon she had stolen, she flees downstairs, causing Mum and Birdie to help him. Lena stabs Mum and the boy attacks her; the woman opens the back door, but Birdie attacks her again, so she hits her over the head with an iron she finds on the floor and rushes outside. Lena falls and twists her ankle. Mum and Dad rush out limping and battered, chasing her into a field.

Lena falls and Mum stabs her with a knife she took from the house. But Mum and Dad are too weak to kill her so Lena fights them off, stabs them both back and forth. Meanwhile, Elbie sets "the spastic" free of her restraints, before strangling her, he walks out of the front door. The next and final shot is of Lena screaming in the field.
