Southlander: Diary of a Desperate Musician is a 2001 comedy from acclaimed music video director Steve Hanft. In the dog-eat-dog world of the Los Angeles music scene, a young musician needs a special edge to be succesful. Chance (Rory Cochrane) has finally found that edge in the futuristic '69 "Molotron" synthesizer keyboard that is responsible for his signature sound. The keyboard gets him the gig-keyboardist for the punk/dub band Future Pigeon and the heart of lead singer Beth Orton (Beth Orton). But when misfortune strikes and the '69 Molotron is stolen before the band goes on tour, Chance and his best friend, Ross Angeles (Ross Harris), are forced to track down the mysterious instrument through the pages of the Southlander, the premiere classifieds for L.A. musicians. Southlander: Diary of a Desperate Musician presents Chance's surreal adventure through the L.A. music scene, featuring cameos and performances from Beck, Hank Williams III, Motherchild and many more.
