Synopsis

Obscure, strip mine crooner, Rev. Fred Lane, is described by his obsessed fans as “subversive,” “completely satirical,” “the Dada Duke Ellington,” and “Demon Frank Sinatra.” His fans have spent years examining every detail of Fred Lane’s albums, and yet whatever information they have found out about their hero has led them deeper to blissful confusion. Icepick to the Moon not only examines the cult of Fred Lane fans, but also pulls the curtain back on the artist who is Fred Lane, from his early involvement in the Raudelunas arts collective of Alabama in the Seventies, to his current occupation making whirligigs to sell on the craft show circuit.
