The Goose Lake International Music Festival 'it was the worst drug orgy that was ever held in the United States'

"The festival took place nearly one year after Woodstock [..] The stage was built on a large, revolving turntable with two performance spaces so that the previous band could disassemble its gear and the next band set up while the current band was performing. [..] The backstage area had a tent where 20 to 30 groupies described as "sizzlers" were available for the performers. [..] An estimated 200,000 rock music fans attended the festival. [..] The festival was known for widespread, openly visible drug sales and public nudity. [..] There were 160 arrests of those leaving after the event, mostly on drug charges. Jackson County sheriff Charles Southworth estimated that "75% of the youths were on drugs [..] There was a report of a rape by a group of bikers while The Stooges were performing. "[>wiki]

This was something interesting among all that bunch of 'reaction videos' you may bump into on YT.

An honest project involving mature audience from Sindh, Pakistan, watching, listening and understanding for the very first time something this different, with a short introduction to relate to the lyrics and contest. 
Watching their faces along Where did you sleep last night climax, I had the same goosebumps I had the very first time I assisted to this performance in my teens (though, I had a big laugh reading "I'm a fraid such pressure could make one fart though" LOL. I'm sure Kurt would have appreciated that.

Fascinating idea for a YT channel: Trybals.

Slint Breadcrumb Trail

Okay, I know I'm late to the party. Who cares.
Still, it was about time. Thank you internet people. I always wanted to watch this Slint documentary, and I remember my suprise as I only catched Breadcrumb Trail trailer on YT, as it was going to be released, around early 2014. I thought: fkcing hell, they were that sooooo young! My instant reaction. Still today. You can't help it. These guys were not only that something d i f f e r e n t musically - genuinelly creative and fresh -, but, they were it and made it happen at an age when I was still picking things out of my nose.. I mean, they had a vision!
And you know - first thing first - what was great, also? Britt Walford's parents: Ron and Charlotte.. yeah, those songs on Tweez are named after them. They totally left free access to these four young guys to the basement for rehearsals, full support and freedom.. I mean.. this happened to be essential for Slint to.. happen!  PARENTS, bloody hell, support and leave the kids bloom! 
And before Slint, there was Languid and FlaccidSquirrel Bait, Maurice - which opened, invited by, for Glenn Danzing, - they were about 14!
This documentary is packed with juicy narrative. From their 'fart - touch the knobs or you'll get punched' with Ian MacKaye, to the erotic cakes Britt decided to learn and bake in NY - or his hidden identity as Shannon Doughton drumming for The Breeders' record Pod, - or also the near-fatal car accident of McMahan, singing Misfits' song We are 138 as paramedics called in Code 138, or the story behind Good Morning Captain scream of 'I miss you', that sweaty, heartfelt cry of I miss you.. soon after McMahan checked himself into a mental hospital, diagnosed with depression.. then, the 'forget the smell' legend..
I mean, if you ever wished to be a fly to see what was happening at those times.. jeez, here's your documentary. Their friendship, the genesis, how it started, how it ended. 
All, wisely and poetically crafted by Lance Bangs.
