In the next installment of CCA & Lost Padre Records’ music + film series, CCA Amplified, we’re sharing the recently unearthed oddity of rock ‘n’ roll history, Neil Young’s absurdist nuclear musical comedy is as strange as it is laugh-out-loud funny. Featuring plutonium-grade weirdos Devo and Dennis Hopper, the film centers on a roadside diner neighboring a leaking nuclear power plant. What follows is surreal slapstick with musical interludes galore, culminating in a must-see version of “My My, Hey Hey” fronted by Devo’s own masked singer Booji Boy. This ranks up there with cult classics such as True Stories and even Purple Rain in terms of rockstar vanity projects at their most pure, entertaining and strange. Plus, much of it was shot in Taos, New Mexico!
Founded in 2018, Lost Padre Records has the largest selection of vinyl of any record store in New Mexico. Named “The Best Record Store in New Mexico” by VinylMePlease.com, the downtown Santa Fe located shop specializes in new and used vinyl records, cassette tapes and CDs as well as vintage and new turntables, receivers and speakers.
