With their hard-edged take on psychedelia, radical politics and personal liberation, the Five's cultural vibrations were so profound they're still being felt today. Conceptual artist and Destroy All Monsters co-founder Cary Loren has assembled rare late-1960s footage of the band shot by Leni Sinclair into a swirling psychedelic art piece. This film features much never-before-seen footage of teh MC5 during the peak of the band's creativity, with audio performances selected to compliment the visuals. The result is an exploding kaleidoscopic mind-trip filled with sparkling surrealism that cuts to the heart of the musical-mystical-political-chemical nexus of the MC5 experience (which Norman Mailer referred to as the 'electro-mechanical climax of the age').

  • Looking At You
