For my birthday, my brother gave me a live Mothers of Invention VCR tape he found in Arcata (where he lives) called "Swiss Cheese, Live in Germany 1968" It looks homemade. Has anyone ever heard or seen this before?

Yeah, that's the right picture, but the line-up is older. The date says June 10, 1968, and it's the old Mothers line-up; Zappa, Bunk Gardner, Roy Estrada, Jimmy Carl Black, Billy Mundi, Ian Underwood, and Motorhead Sherwood, who is doing all sorts of strange things on stage like reading and seriously studying a teen magazine while they play, making a sandwich out of anything he can find, and drinking a glass of water, then spitting all the water out. The performance is all instumental, and really trippy. As in they use a lot of late 60s special effects.
