We're the Stains, and we don't put out

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains, my favorite flick from the eighties, got MeFi'ed yesterday. This influential but criminally ignored film inspired a whole generation of feminist punk bands. The movie's official site promises an upcoming DVD release but no date is forthcoming. I'm practically salivating for those extras and commentary tracks but for now I'll have to be content with my grainy bootleg copy.

A great mini-documentary about the film.

"Join the Professionals" performed by The Looters, a.k.a. Steve Jones and Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols, Paul Simonon from the Clash, and actor Ray Winstone.

The inauspicious debut of the Stains.

The Stains rip off "Join the Professionals".

"Join the Professionals" covered by Nasty Ho.
