The Story



A young truck-driver passes through the California desert. He is distraught after leaving behind A girlfriend of three years. A heated argument with his boss erupts as well which leads to being fired over the dispatch and ordered to bring the eighteen wheeler in for good. Feeling hopeless, he decides to drown his sorrows at {Crossroads Tavern} as he asks for three shots that are "Real Stiff."

The trucker throws back each drink while simultaneously befriending A member of A three piece Jam band. The three players are chain smoking desperados asking for A lift to the Death - Valley location of JamzTown. Purposively, they have A date with destiny at Jamz Recording Studio. The trucker agrees to their request. Meanwhile, A parade of angelic cuties appear on stage in front of them for A Burlesque show. As you can imagine, the next few hours are an undocumented blur. The night ends with the foursome sharing A dive motel together. The trucker's notebook falls to the ground and opens before the players. The Jam band questions the trucker about the poems which are all labeled in White skeleton bone lettering...

The Jam band encourages the trucker to sing his lyrics along to their music as the smokers are all lit up while playing their instruments.

The group awakes sometime in the afternoon as they get hauling throughout the midday. The evening leads the bunch into A Gentleman's club as the trucker is delighted to see A dancing beauty dressed in A scandalous horny devil costume. Her sense of mischief, sweetness and danger make for A seductive mix.

The trucker approaches the lady with an IOU written on A napkin rather than A dollar bill as she invites him to A complimentary pour in the Champagne room. The warmth of her presence heats up the room as they decide to leave out the back door exit. The trucker takes his new companion to her place to get acquainted. The Jam band is left behind to fend for themselves.

The ambience of her Moroccan styled dwelling has A scent of Parisian perfume. After they have finished she attempts to persuade the trucker to stay with her. She tells the trucker that he should drive the rig off A cliff and crawl back into her bed. The trucker calmly explains the situation that he promised to get the band to JamzTown. She tells the trucker that if he goes down that path he will throw his life away trying to be A rock and roller. The trucker gets fiercely angered with A response "It is my own life to make or break, who in the hell do you think you are talking down to me like that!" As the sun comes up for the day the trucker makes his way out the door without further agitation.

The Jam band is coughing and of course smoking back at the motel in the morning when the trucker arrives. The players walked home in the cold the night before which led to their sickness. The trucker acknowledges temptation made him weak. They accept his apology and get on the road again together. The trucker conveys that the temptress had A mystical seductive lure which frightened him.

The group is traveling in the big rig cruising down the highway as the trucker conveys that he is remorseful about the mistake of fighting with his longtime girlfriend that started this downward spiral. He then regrets his choice to take up with another woman and begins to pray outloud.

The crew stop in at A diner and the trucker goes to use A telephone to call his former girlfriend apologizing. He tells her that they are nearby JamzTown and that he is anxious about his new rock and roll opportunity. She is supportive, encouraging him that "When the world hears your words all the skeletons will dance on their graves." He tells her that he misses her and loves her. He tells her to meet him at Jamz Recording Studio, it's on the way to Vegas "Baby, maybe we could take drive to A church and get married?" She responds with "Oh my God yes! His response is that he does not need A bachelor party. The trucker screams out loud with joy and hangs up the phone by mistake.

The group is still A few hours out of JamzTown as the rig gets A flat tire. A boomerang is found nearby in the sand as the trucker picks it up and throws it over and over again.

A tribe of Indians arrive on horseback welcoming the trucker to eat. The group abandons the big rig and venture into the unknown. After dinner, the Chief offers the gift of mushroom tea to the trucker. He accepts it as the Sun goes down. Within the confines of A cave the trucker takes part in A lone dance as the walls capture his shadow. The next morning the group awakes to A lonesome desert. The base camp has gone away as there is not A soul in sight. The trucker and players begin walking towards the truck to fix the tire yet realize there is no spare. Frustrated with life, the trucker then decides to drive his rig off A cliff blaming it on the little devil in his head. The explosion is wonderful as they all watch from the top of A ledge.

From there, they start walking along A train track in order to hitch A ride into JamzTown. They finally get on board the cab of A train as they see JamzTown is only 7 miles away.    

The group enters JamzTown to realize that it is uninhabited.  It seems as though the group has been on course to A ghost town.  They pass by A Tattoo parlor with candles burning inside as the trucker decides to have JamzTown imprinted in White skeleton bone lettering down his spine.

Thereafter, the foursome approach Jamz Recording Studio.  They see the power is on and walk inside yet there is still not A soul around?  They agree to just go ahead and record their music as they flip the switch at midnight.  “We’re gonna record A true [Underground Sound.]  The trucker instructs the group to put out their cigarettes while recording.  They simultaneously respond “We can’t” as an odd moment catches the trucker off guard then is dismissed.

At the end of this recording session the band is rejoicing in there pleasure of accomplishment.  The three players excuse themselves to the back door for A celebratory smoke.  The trucker holds the master copy up in the air and begins to cry.  Simultaneously, all the electricity in the building shuts down at once. The trucker is alone in the dark; grabs A flashlight and goes to look for the players. Instead, he finds three tombstones encrypted: 

A car pulls up slowly before the trucker has time to think. His fiancé gets out of the vehicle as they passionately hug and kiss. He is speechless. She asks him where his new band is. Still in state of shock he says "You do not want to know" as they decide to get the hell out of JamzTown!
