Trailerama: The Weird World of Blowfly

February 26, 2010

In 1969, Clarence Reid was just another songwriter working in the R&B trenches. Then he started penning songs like “What a Difference a Lay Makes” and performing them as his masked alter ego, Blowfly. Jonathan Furmanski spends some time with the ribald sexagenarian, who continues to live the dream. Fans like Ice T and Chuck D help tell the story of stag party success and financial ruin behind the man who “brings humanity to all the perversion.” Expect the air to turn blue at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.
