The Undisputed Truth

I've been haunted by seeing this clip on VHI fifteen years ago--I just bought a great CD comp of Undisputed Truth stuff last week... There's a BIZARRE track called "UFOs" that I wish all those hipsters who made such a big deal about Can or Gong in the 90s would check out. Another song's called "Poontang"! T.U.T. is basically the group where maverick Motown producer Norman Whitfield would try out his most experimental sounds--many of their tracks later became bigger hits for less freaky Motown acts [check out the UTruth's "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" or the ten-minute "Ball of Confusion"--it's even weirder than Tom Jones' version!].
