WHO IS FRED LANE?
For years, we pondered this question, listening to the records, staring at the covers. Without the internet, we had no clue. Rumors flew, and none of them were true.
This film clears up the story- and the truth is stranger than our conjectures!
A must for Fred Lane fans and newbies alike ... this is a heartfelt portrait of an artist and the influence he has had on fans for decades.
BUNDLE THIS WITH THE FRED LANE LPS AND SAVE!
Rev. Fred Lane, the pants-less, stripmine crooner with Band Aids on his face, is described by his obsessed fans as "subversive," "completely satirical," "the Dada Duke Ellington," and "Demon Frank Sinatra." His fans have spent years examining every detail of Fred Lane's albums, and yet whatever information they have found out about their hero has only led them deeper into blissful confusion.
This award-winning documentary, 19 years-in-the-making, not only examines the cult of Fred Lane fans, but also pulls the curtain back on the mysterious artist who is Fred Lane, from his early involvement in the Seventies with Alabama's wild, countercultural Raudelunas arts collective, to his current occupation making whirligigs to sell on the juried arts and crafts show circuit.
DVD special features include complete short films (THE FRENCH TOAST MAN and ALFRED JARRY & 'PATAPHYSICS), deleted scenes, trailer, audio commentary recorded in front of a live audience for The Projection Booth Podcast, and subtitles in English and Pig Latin!
