Film-clip from "Medium Cool", by Haxell Wexler, USA, 1968. The sequence includes the first two tracks off Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention album, "We're Only In It For The Money": "Are you hung up?" and "Who needs the Peace Corps?".

The film itself is a semi-fictional document of Chicago in 1968, culminating in the action around the Democratic National Convention.

Extra detail (thanks rastamanusa):
"This is probably the only footage of the inside of The Electric Theatre/Kinetic Playground 4812 N Clark St in Chicago, which featured some of the best Rock band's on earth at the time! It opened on April 5, 1968, the day after the assassination of Martin Luther King. Because of the civil unrest in the wake of the death of Rev. King the city was under a curfew but attendance was still strong on opening night."
