Betty Blowtorch Film In The Works

Filmmaker Anthony Scarpa Conti

Filmmaker Anthony Scarpa was two years into his documentary on the Hollywood hard rock band Betty Blowtorch when tragedy struck and lead singer/bassist Bianca Halstead was killed in a car accident in new Orleans on December 15th, 2001. Though there was talk of aborting the project after Halstead’s death, Scarpa and Foodchain Records, who released Betty’s Blowtorch’s full-length debut Are You man Enough?, have decided to carry on and finish the film as a tribute to the late, great Bianca Butthole, as she was known on stage (“Binky” to her friends).

“I have been making a documentary on Betty Blowtorch for the past two years,” says Scarpa. “I have traveled and hung out extensively with the band and have compiled hundreds of hours of footage. After Bianca's tragic death I decided, along with Bianca's parents and the people at Foodchain Records, that nothing short of a full-length feature film would do justice to Bianca and this amazing band.”

Here’s where you can help. Scarpa is looking for friends and fans to send in any footage or photos you may have of Betty Blowtorch or Butt Trumpet (Bianca’s first band) -- live shows you may have videotaped or collected, interviews you got off cable shows, news stories about the band or about the accident, etc. They will figure out ways to dupe tapes and copy photos at no cost to the sender, so just mail them what you've got and they'll take it from there. “Whatever any of you can dig up would be a great help and will help us preserve Bianca's legacy and hopefully turn some people on to a band that would have gotten around to kicking their ass sooner or later.”

You can email Anthony Scarpa directly at bettyblowtorchfilm@yahoo.com or mail him correspondence, videotape, photos or whatever to:

Twelve Rakes Films
PO Box 93144
Los Angeles CA 90093

You can also e-mail Jade at Foodchain Records at jade@foodchainrecords.com and send regular mail to:
