The dance duo nick his 'Scorpio Rising' title for his new LP - and earns his scorn...

Death In Vegas have locked horns with cult film-maker KENNETH ANGER over their new album ’SCORPIO RISING’, NME.COM can reveal.

The band had asked him to make a short film to accompany their new album ‘Scorpio Rising’ which is named after his 1964 biker gangland film. But the director told the dance duo where to go, adding “I haven’t even listened to your squalid little dirge”. They’re now hoping he doesn’t put a curse on them as he’s done with other collaborators.
