This is a brief history of the Seattle band Lamar Harrington from the
early 1970's. Formed by U of W art students and friends for an event at
the Henry Art Gallery they named themselves after the gallery director,
a good person named Lamar Harrington. The band continued to play events
around the U of W area and gained some noteriety. When the real Lamar
was not pleased with some of the antics and events that her name was
being subjected to, she said the band had to change its name;
hence "Formerly Lamar Harrington". They were known for spontaneous and
wild performances with 5 to 50 people "in the band". The archival film
is from Paul Dorpat and music was edited by Neville Pearsall.
