CFF: FARQUAR MUCKENFUSS PLAY THE MONKEES + HEAD (1968)
THE CINEDELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL presents

Tuesday, April 16, 8:00 PM

As part of PhilaMOCA's Tuesday Tune-Out series, Philly's own Farquar Muckenfuss perform a full set of Monkees covers followed by a screening of The Monkees' feature film HEAD (1968).

Farquar Muckenfuss is what results from mixing classic instrumental surf rock with skate punk, rockabilly, exotica, and circus music.  To keep the attention of a confused audience awaiting vocals, the trio found it important to be engaging in other ways so they developed confrontational, garishly-costumed stage antics.  They also crowded the stage with antiquated laboratory equipment,  
biological oddities, and surplus military gear.  In 1998, with the help of The Dead Milkmen's Joe Jack Talcum, they recorded the album They Grow Their Own Meat: Grade 'E' (but Edible) (Burnt Toast Vinyl, 1999).  The band disappeared in October of 2000 and waited twelve years before announcing their next show.

HEAD was The Monkees' attempt at both summarizing and distancing themselves from their television career.  The film's success is debatable, but this free-format head trip of a feature has garnered a loyal cult following and a montage of songs from the soundtrack were met with cheers throughout 2012's Monkees reunion tour.  Reportedly (and understandably) conceived and written with the aid of psychedelic drugs, co-writers Jack Nicholson and Bob Rafelson (who also directed) pillage the depths of cinema to represent all genres and tropes as they send Peter, Davy, Micky, and Mike on an existential adventure of self-awareness.  Wild stuff!

Advance tix are $10, no refunds or exchanges.

The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
