Director Statement

I am not much of a film maker. I like to create with what I have near me, be it recycled materials, pens or my laptop and document things by recording or videoing. Lots of the stuff I have made over the years I haven't shown. However, this documentary is special because it talks about a period in my life and in the musical history of this country when I was able to create completely free from any sort of prejudice, together with people I consider now family. We were loud, wild and outrageous and we didn't care. Isn't that what life is all about?
