The Fugs footage

"Thanks to The Fugs rock music became for the first time the voice of counter-culture, they have been the first "underground", "alternative", "political" band.
Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, two anarchical pacifist beat poets from New York, formed The Fugs on late '64 to exploit the expressive and communicative possibilities of rock music. They announced themselves as "a total assault on culture" and, despite their rough musical technique, they became history thanks to their sarcastic and provocative attitude; each concert was a theatrical happening to attack and to tease the hypocrisies and taboos of the estabilishment. ..."

Music For Your Eyes shares great footage of the Fugs with us. Two downloadable videos.
I have uploaded the first one to Daily Motion for easy access.
A clip apparently from Swedish television
I've tubed it for you as well - if you're more into that kind of thing.
