The band’s sound seems inspired at times by Frank Zappa and at times by the Grateful Dead. First up is a song called a “A Present For You.” Footage of the band performing in a studio is interlaced with footage of wacky actors.

21:30Copy video clip URL Comedic segment set at a bar called Chez Buddy. Buddy Allen and his Star-Studded Revue perform. The man playing Buddy Allen gets on stage and tells groan-inducing jokes to much abuse from the audience. Buddy responds with his own insults like, “Hey, it takes four of you to make a square!” and then zaps audience members with a beam that shoots from his hand.
