The Art of Public Performance #1

On June 1, 1968, two days before the attempted assassination of Andy Warhol in New York, five days before the successful assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in Los Angeles, The Fugs took to the stage at the Fillmore East . . . site of more live recordings than half the joints in America combined . . . and delivered of themselves this performance, released more than a year later as an LP on the Reprise label as Golden Filth.

One of the great albulms of all time. The whole Lesbian Dwarves intro was like something from another planet at that time, and the Fugs reached a level of basic raunch not approached by any other group, ever.

"Do not tell me
I am the source of your knock-up.
The mud elephant,
wading through the sea,
leaves no tracks."

Supergirl is by far one of the best songs ever written. I've never heard this album though. I'll have a listen.
