Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Found a couple interesting things on YouTube from old-school South Florida public access shows (not as many as I would have liked, though!). First cool item was this video posted by the user "Ninjaguydan," who lists her (?) name as Lisa, and says she directed this music video for her old public access TV show.

It's for the band Al's Not Well, and their song, "Ego." They were legendary in the Nineties South Florida rock scene for their psychedelic lyrics, as well as out-of-control live shows, which were often marked by a pack of underaged, gothy girls dressed up as fairies dancing onstage.

Most of the band is now in the also excellent Music Is A Weapon.

Anyone involved in this video, or with more information about it or the show (it's undated), feel free to comment or write and let me know what you're up to these days! -- Arielle Castillo
