BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad TV marathon

March 5, 2007

now if you’ve seen the banner for this site, you’d probably recognize that I’m a big fan of BECK: Mongolian Chop.  Now I have good news for you my Canadian brothers, BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad will premiere on MuchMusic Friday, March 9 at 8pm EST/5pm PST!  I’m so jealous.  So far there has been no announcement for an air date in America or even a set dvd release date.  Hopefully MTV or MTV 2 can snatch this title up in the states.  BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad is the story of an indie rock band in Japan trying to get their name out to the world.
