Real life human muppets on acid. Two nights before Halloween, forty-plus years ago, plastic-fantastic freaks (truly) Flo & Eddie exorcized all manner of demons and lesser deities at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ. Throughout the performance the pair talk shit about Carl Douglas’s “Kung Fu Fighting,” ape Mick Jagger, the Jefferson Airplane, the late Jim Morrison’s poet-shtick and much, much more. The Turtles this is snot.
Opening the show with an impenetrable wall of noise, feedback and smoke (!), the former Zappa acolytes immediately break the fourth wall. So. Embrace the uncanny, don a mask and set course for October of 1975.
