Editorial Reviews

In this shocking and sensitive exploratory journey through the thunderstorms of the mind of paranoid-schizophrenic Larry "Wild Man" Fischer, we follow his discordant encounters in the music business. Institutionalized at 16 after attacking his mother with a knife, Fischer wandered the mean streets of L.A. singing his unique brand of songs for 10› a pop to passersby. He was discovered by Frank Zappa, with whom he cut his first record album, including the enduring dada rock classic 'Merry Go Round'. A precursor to punk, Fischer became an underground club and concert favorite, earning him the title of "godfather of outsider music." In his 40 year career, he has performed constantly, was the first artist ever recorded on Rhino Records, was on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, had a top hit on the UK Pop Charts, was the subject of his own comic book, became a mainstay on the Doctor Demento Show , and even sang a duet with the late Rosemary Clooney.
