[ spotlight ] Ash Koshanejad and Negar Shaghaghi, the twin songwriters of Take It Easy Hospital, rose to prominence in director Bahman Ghobadi's film, "No One Knows About Persian Cats," a fictionalized account of the duo's attempts to recruit a rhythm section in order to play a local underground gig in Tehran and ultimately escape to the rock-friendly west.

I too hope that they get a chance to someday play freely in Iran - as all musicians should. But personally, I think they really suck :-P In fact, I think they were the weakest of the performers featured in Ghobadi's movie.
