Subject: Louis Hardin, Jr. a/k/a Moondog

The Viking of 6th Avenue was better known as "Moondog," although his official real name was Louis Thomas Hardin, Jr.

For a number of years, a group of artists and filmmakers have worked in dogged pursuit of their goal: a feature film about Moondog. There already exists a published book titled 'The Viking of Sixth Avenue' publicized as an official biography.
(I'm waiting for my second-hand copy to come in the post.)

As befits the film's persevering, nonconformist subject,
the producers of this film maintain that the film is "in production" even years after bringing the project to the public on Facebook -- my attempt failed to link to the Facebook page --

and Kickstarter.

A one-minute trailer already exists and may be viewed online at the synopsis page, which is the first clicky link in this post.

Does anyone know of him spending time in Germany? I am sure I saw him more than once standing outside of a record or book store in Hamburg. Must have been early 70s.

He moved from the US to Germany in the 1970s and made a number of records on the German KOPF label.

Thomas.

Michaelr, you could hardly do better than to proceed to
Moondog's Corner, a website maintained in Germany in his memory,
bilingual in content.

I believe his estate, and by extension his publications,
are administrated from Germany. He died there.
