Out of the dingy depths of a VHS lined lair come the psychedelic surf sludge punk Philly duo CaveWomen.

Just a little over 8 years ago, film fanatic david j. moore [sic] started tappin’ up material with the clickity-click of an old-school typewriter with what would be the first manifestations of his book WORLD GONE WILD: A SURVIVOR’S GUIDE TO POST-APOCALYPTIC  MOVIES.
