MOCAtv's latest series of videos is a documentary about the groundbreaking and incredibly influential artist Bruce Conner. Hailed as "father of the music video," Conner was also a kaleidoscopic draftsman and assemblage artist associated with the Beats in San Francisco. The series features videos from Toni Basil, Devo, and Brian Eno & David Byrne with interviews and commentary from Dennis Hopper, Gerard Casale, and many more!

In this excellent debut episode of their "The Art of Punk" series, MOCAtv dissects the art of the legendary Black Flag, from their iconic four bars symbols, to their coveted and now collectable gig flyers, singles, and band t-shirts. The distinctive Indian ink drawn image and text featured on most of these was all by none other than Raymon Pettibon. We've been on a art in music kick lately due to our special Beastie Boys issue and this is a wonderful video on the group's commitment to art, featuring interviews with Raymond Pettibon as well as Flea, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Henry Rollins.
