Unsung Vinyl - New & Used Records

The New York underground performance art scene in the late 80's was teeming with unique talents. Enter Robert Prichard and Jennifer Babtist (both of CLASS OF NUKE 'EM HIGH), who decided that the madness happening nightly needed to be preserved on videotape, under the moniker of Surf Reality. At the same time, genre favorite Matt Mitler (THE MUTILATOR, DEADTIME STORIES) was challenged to improvise a feature film in a single day. Prichard and Mitler, who were friends since high school, joined forces to shoot a series of one-day features on video, and so the Movie of the Month Club was born! This definitive collection features all of the tantalizing and gonzo Movie of the Month Club videos: Kid Scarface, Manic A Go Go, Dick and Jane Drop Acid and Die, I Was a Teenage Bride of Christ, Thrill Kill Video Club, Alien Sex Phone Psycho, Les Enfants Miserables, as well as the previously unfinished Turf of Savage Homicides, and the home video version of Matt Mitler's popular play, MacBeth, King of Scoutland, which wittily (and often irreverently) transplants Shakespeare's tragedy from Scotland to a scout camp. Art Label is thrilled to bring the Movie of the Month features to disc for the first time, from the best surviving videotape elements of these ultra-rare pieces of alternative moviemaking.
