JOHN AND FAITH HUBLEY
"Moonbird (1959), based on the tape-recorded ramblings of Mark and Ray "Hampy" Hubley In a backyard safari for the mythic moonbird."
"The Hole (1962) uses improvised dialogue from Dizzy Gillespie and George Mathews as a pair of construction workers, one white, one black. Working deep underground, our cartoon heroes begin debating the fate of the world and the possibility of nuclear annihilation...from under the streets of New York."
"The music was taken directly from two tracks- "Spanish Flea" and "Tijuana Taxi"- featured on Herb and The Brass' 1965 album, "Going Places" [the opening excerpt was "Mexican Shuffle", from 1964's "South of the Border"]."
