Another of MVD’s frequent forays into underground rock, FREAKS IN LOVE is a documentary that spies the classic punk scene through the filter of one of its beloved icons. That icon would be the band Alice Donut. Unless I’ve heard a track before unaware, this would be my first exposure of any sort to the band. At 140 minutes, there’s certainly plenty of time to learn about this important underground act – just witness the glowing praise from the likes of Jello Biafra and Meat Puppet-eer Curt Kirkwood. The band is beloved and we all know how zealous are fans of the old school “true” punk. There are a lot of potential audiences for this one. Fans of rock and rock dox can definitely get their rocks off in the big trench this digs into non-corporate rock-and-roll. Punk purists and rawkers in general can enjoy this holding up of Alice Donut on its punk pedestal. And anybody into the genealogy of music can get a peak at a specific niche of vintage rawk-n-roll.
