Among the handful of video recordings of Lanesville TV that exist today, this tape is particularly special for its documentation of one of its very first programs to run on the air. The tape captures the energy and excitement of the Videofreex as they prepare to go live, and Parry Teasdale taking calls during the show to drum up interest and also monitor sound quality. A subsequent post-production discussion about sync levels, and a brief conversation about art, politics, and power organizations, lends insight into the debates regarding technology, information and the political nature of their affiliation during the period. As Carol Vontobel insists, “We ain’t no hippies. We’re freaks.”
