Grow Live Monsters is a selection from short home-made no-budget 8mm, super 8 and 16mm film fantasies made between 1971-1976. Most of the films revolved around a group of friends and the wall of noise they would create in basement cellars and in live performance around Ann Arbor, Michigan. The scratchy footage features the irrepressible artist/chanteuse Niagara, in a variety of scintillating roles such as Gestapo Queen, Mermaid, Cannibal, Vampire, Manson victim, whipping post, Virgin Sacrifice, monster bride, light bulb princess, etc... music by Jim Shaw, Cary Loren and Mike Kelley, Niagara, Destroy All Monsters is like nothing else. Ever. Psychedelic meets noise meets high and low brow art in a Midwestern blender. Say goodbye to your retinas.
