      DERAILROADED: Inside the Mind of Larry "Wild Man" Fischer
      An Ubin Twinz Film

      de*rail*road*ed (di rāl'rōd ed) 1. pt.; a neologism; one man's
      psycholinguistic and schizo-musical metaphor for derailed, to have
      caused a train, mind or life to go off the tracks. 2. proper noun; an
      86 minute documentary feature

      In this shocking and sensitive musical journey through the
      thunderstorms of the mind of manic-depressive and
      paranoid-schizophrenic Larry "Wild Man" Fischer, we follow his
      discordant encounters in the music business. Institutionalized at 16
      after attacking his mother with a knife, Fischer wandered the mean
      streets of L.A. singing his unique brand of songs for 10¢ each to
      passersby. He was discovered by Frank Zappa, with whom he cut his
      first record album, including the enduring dada rock classic 'Merry Go
      Round'. A precursor to punk, Fischer became an underground club and
      concert favourite, earning him the title of "godfather of outsider
      music." Over the course of his 40 year career, Fischer has performed
      constantly, is the first artist ever recorded on Rhino Records, was
      featured on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, had a top hit in the UK Pop
      Charts with 'Go To Rhino Records', which featured in John Peel's
      Festive Fifty 1976, was the subject of his own comic book, was a
      mainstay on The Dr Demento Show, and even sang a duet with the late
      Rosemary Clooney.

      Extensive archival footage from Fischer's early days, including his TV
      and club performances, trace his life from neglected child to tortured
      genius. We visit him at home, follow him on the streets, and speak
      with those who over the years witnessed - and survived - his erratic
      behavior: his family, his doctor, and industry professionals including
      Frank and Gail Zappa, Weird Al Yankovic, Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo,
      Solomon Burke, Dr. Demento, and Barnes and Barnes. You will be moved,
      amazed, repelled, and ultimately come to know what it is like to be
      profoundly DERAILROADED.
