“Using a combination of found footage from early ‘60s San Francisco and footage I’ve kept in my most secret drawers for the last 8 years, I’ve illustrated 8 songs in record album format, 2 songs from my earliest memories in the late ‘40s, 2 from the earliest part of rock ’n roll when they were still putting them out in 78, and the others by Snakefinger. The cast includes Snakefinger, the Mutants, Mary Leiton, Mark Ellinger and Melinda McDowell. The film is dedicated to the memory of my father.” –C.M.
