Harvest Rock Syndicate 1990

by Brian Quincy Newcomb

You're not going to believe this one, don't try this at home. This is the video your Mom warned you about. Not only do Terry Taylor, Tim Chandler, Jerry Chamberlain and Greg Flesch (groovy rock hair, babe) test the limits of discretion and good taste, they appear to be having a grand time doing it. Not only do you get that rather disgusting clip of "I've Got An Idea", with all the Ed's heads kind of co-mingled together, but you get not one but two tasteless songs from a Holiday Inn Lounge singer, who is truly bad. And when I say bad, I don't mean good. You get an Elvis impersonator, and another singer who appears to be giving Wayne Newton a real run for his money, all in all it's trivial, common and a real hoot. Now, there's that opening segment where Taylor, behind a screen to protect his identity, says that none of the members smoke and then he takes a drag off a filtered number; this is a joke, kids. If you order this one, you've been warned so don't send it back and expect your money back. Also, there's great footage as well of a full on stage DA brawl, filmed at Greenbelt, you got to love these guys. Really you do, it;s a rule, and I should know, I just made it up. Look, you can buy this sucker for $20.00 (includes postage and handling), through Swirling Eddies Spinning Vortex Fun Club, PO Box 20233, El Cajon, CA 92021. Put this on when you're ready for a party to end and drive all your friends away.
