Oaks, PA- Music Video Distributors and Book Beat are pleased to announce the home viewing release of the MC5 – Kick Out the Jams for worldwide distribution on DVD.

To be sure, Detroit’s MC5 were some bad mofos. With their hard edged take on psychedelic 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 film of the band shot by Leni Sinclair into a swirling psychedelic art piece. This film features much never-before-seen footage of the MC5 during the peak of the band’s creativity, with audio performances selected to complement 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 Norma Mailer referred to as the “electro-mechanical climax of the age”).
