The Weird World of Blowfly
Not Rated Variance Films | Release Date: September 16, 2011
Summary: 70-year-old Clarence Reid could be your cranky grandfather--until he puts on his gold-spangled superhero costume and starts singing some of the raunchiest tunes you've ever heard in your life (and we're big rap fans, so this is saying something). Reid begins his career as a lynchpin of the esteemed Miami soul scene, where he wrote Top-1070-year-old Clarence Reid could be your cranky grandfather--until he puts on his gold-spangled superhero costume and starts singing some of the raunchiest tunes you've ever heard in your life (and we're big rap fans, so this is saying something). Reid begins his career as a lynchpin of the esteemed Miami soul scene, where he wrote Top-10 songs for Betty Wright, Gwen McCrae, and KC & The Sunshine Band. But his insanely profane recording as "Blowfly" have shocked audiences for over forty-five years, and include what may well be the world's first rap song, recorded in 1965. You may not know Blowfy just yet - but this loving, yet unflinching, film will fix that quick snap. (Variance Films)
