Not to mention the replacement of the Janecek soundtrack with rock in
Anger's Inaugerations Under the Pleasure Dome. I much preferred the
alternate track that John Zorn played at Anthology (with Anger's
consent?) a couple of years ago to the current music. A playful tweak to
Fred: if you were watching a 16mm print of Early Abstractions alone in
the privacy of your home might you turn off the sound, despite Smith's
decision that he wanted the Beatles accompaniment.
