Werewolves on Wheels, Barry Maguire and "Eve of Destruction"

So, I'm writing a piece that mentions Werewolves on Wheels -- which is, by the way, pretty hypnotic and so exactly what Larry Bishop's Hell Ride was trying to be -- and realized that one of the biker gang was Barry McGuire, who sang "Eve of Destruction." And that he became a born-again Christian the year after he made Werewolves on Wheels, in which he's part of a gang called the "Devils Advocates" (apparently they're too butch for apostrophes) who get the wolf whammy put on them by a bunch of Satan-worshipping monks. Hmmm, coincidence or not?

Be all that as it may, I ran across this clip of McGuire singing "Eve of Destruction" on some TV show and all I can say is, who designed that set? Mad Max's cousin? And what are those dancers in black doing to those junked cars?

It's something else.

Whoa! That is some clip. He does deliver the hell, so to speak, out of that song, though.
