44 Thumbs, A-Z: #2

Thumbnails from Claude Matthews' early 1980s University of Texas video project, 13th Floor Elevators: Psychedelic Reprise. Rare as hell and as stifling as an Austin mental ward in late August, this typically stiff student documentary assiduously eludes entertainment virtues. Of course, concerns about technique and image quality, especially in this context, are trifling. The video remains a very interesting document from the ground floor of Roky Damage Central...

I haven't any additional information about the student documentarian or his classmates, but here's a link to the university's College of Communication.
