Max and the Makeups

In 1981, Max and the Makeups "starred" in The University of Texas film school project "The 41st Song". The concept of the film was that the Top 40
was evil and Max and the Makeups played "The 41st Song" - the song that would propel the peasants to revolt against The Establishment. The film also starred The Next's Ty Gavin.
The band recalls "The Makeups fell into a 'film noir' category in 1981. Every band had to fall in to some category at that time - punk, new romantic, new wave,
etc. We were very busy in film and music videos mainly because of the UT film school and that all of us were UT students. Jon Howard was a film student and he brought a lot of the film community to the
group".
The Makeups would later (1982) star in one of the earliest awful- horror-film genre films” Future Kill", where the band had the same role and effect on the crowd in the audience that it had in "The 41st Song" - when
the band played - the peasants would revolt against The Establishment.
Puke N Vomits Natt Hall saw the band in the film and contacted Alvarez in 2010. Puke has put out two vinyl releases since – 2010 4 song ep and 2015’s LP “Chasing the Monsters”. Most of the group’s music can be found on notrecordstapes.com for free mp3 listening.
