Finally someone uploaded this documentary by Jane Railla from 1993. Ive been looking for this for years! Shooting with a hi8 video camera, Jean documents several bands and personalities from the Los Angeles music scene of the early 1990s including Ethyl Meatplow, Beck, Possum Dixon, Glue, The Abe Lincoln Story, Pleasant Gehman, and others. Edited and co-produced by Jonathon Stearns.
It contains lots of really good Possum Dixon footage not to find anywhere else. Both playing and jabbing and doing everyday stuff. Great film about the indie music community in LA in the early 90s. Great bands and great music all the way through! Good fun.

I believe this is the audio from a live video that’s no longer available on youtube.
Possum Dixon in studio with radio host Tricia Halloran at KCRW promoting the new album Star Maps. Features interviews and live performance of Artificial Sunlight, Go West, Make Him Mad, Emergency’s About To End, Radio Comets, Personals and Apartment Song. The first 4 songs where released as a double 7″ on Detective Records / Flat Earth Records. Go to Discography / Audio section and scroll to Live At KCRW to here the songs in much better sound quality.
Rob Zabreckys new book Strange Cures (Rothco Press) is highly recommended. A glimpse into LAs underground scene in the 80s and 90s, the Silver Lake community and of course stories about Possum Dixon and how it all started.
