FILM @ if ART: February 1, 2020, 7:30 pm: ICEPICK TO THE MOON
South Carolina premiere of the feature length documentary about stripmine crooner, Rev. Fred Lane, and the Raudelunas arts collective of Alabama in the 1970s.

In the late 1970s, a group of like-minded avant-garde musicians at University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa channeled the spirit of Dadaist Alfred Jarry into a full-blown big-band ensemble to support the visionary Fred Lane (née Tim Reed). With a unique “stripmine crooning” leading his bands, the Rev. Fred Lane released two legendary LPs for Mark Kramer’s Shimmy Disc label out of NYC in 1983 (FROM THE ONE THAT CUT YOU) and 1986 (CAR RADIO JEROME).
ICEPICK TO THE MOON is his third LP released in 2019 on Feeding Tube Records. ICEPICK is also the name of Skizz Cyzyk’s 2018 documentary on Fred Lane and his musical adventures.
