Doc 018: Cary Loren

Interlude Docs

During the spring or summer of ’74, I met Jim Shaw and Mike Kelley at the Hill Street theater and we soon began meeting in the basement of their commune known as God’s Oasis to practice music. My girlfriend Niagara joined us in the winter of ’74 and Shaw named the group Destroy All Monsters a few weeks before our first live performance at an Ann Arbor comic book distribution center on New Year’s Eve.  

Cary Loren is a filmmaker, musician, photographer and founding member of the Destroy All Monsters collective. He lives in Detroit and is the proprietor of The Book Beat, a visual arts bookstore.
