As the drum features the band name "Mark IV" I looked them up on Wikipedia. No reason to doubt it is a promotional film for that 60's American band, given the American street sign, Mad magazine, KMBC radio station, etc.


I don't think that's who they are. That "The Mark IV" was a 50's band. These guys are pretty obviously some kind of 60's garage band....

Is that a large photo of Moby Grape they're holding to camera around 57" ?

Two groups called the Mark IV had singles released in 1966 - one from Kentucky and one from Poughkeepsie, New York.

The film is probably from 1967 (certainly no earlier) in view of the reference to the film "Bonnie & Clyde" and the image of Moby Grape from their first LP cover.

That's the KMBC 9 TV building, Kansas City, Missouri.

That issue of Mad is from June 68, so It has to be later than that.


Beyond cool. What a great find. You should have it professionally transferred and eliminate the shuttering of the film
