Juan Montoya of Stallone Performs at Splatter-Rama: "I'm a Big Horror Movie Fan"

As a former charge of Hydra Head Records, do you have anything to say about the label going under?

You know, I was working retail and selling instruments, and as soon as the economy went bad, it became a big life decision to spend $100. People just worried about every step they make and things are really tight at the moment, which is a shame.

I feel that Mark (Thompson) should've kept better books or something, because I remember asking for updates and he would be really bad with it, so maybe that kind of cost them? They had a cool thing going and sometimes having good taste and being cutting edge in music doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be a good business person.

Aside from playing Churchill's, Stallone is performing as part of the monthly Splatter-Rama event at Cinema Paradiso in Fort Lauderdale this weekend, right?

Yeah! Years ago, when I was in Torche, I found out that they would let us have a show there, and I booked the Jacuzzi Boys when they first started out, before they were all popular and whatnot, and we played the inside of the theater. I'm a big horror movie fan, so this is a really cool show to be a part of! Also, we're going to video tape the shows, so it's going to be really cool to have our friends on film.

For a DVD?

Yeah, if we play good!

Stallone performs with Manray and the Deadly Blank at Splatter-Rama, Night of the Living Dead and Dead Alive at 7 p.m. on September 30 at Cinema Paradiso.
