""The unearthing of the LAFMS recordings is experimental rock history at it's most historical and hysterical - a completely bizarro and further-out counterpart to the L.A. punk scene." (Thurston Moore)
This historical collection of shortfilms shows the experimental scene in L.A. in the seventies. This scene, with Smegma as most notorious outcome, was heavily influenced by the Mothers of Invention, Beefheart, the Residents and Sun Ra, but also by the radical foundations of Fluxus and the Aktionists. They paved the road for the New Weird Americans as No-Neck Blues Band and Jackie-O-Motherfucker who nowadays are pivotal of the American expermentalists.
