Ladies and gentlemen, the Fabulous DVD.


Three years ago, I wrote a brief note about a fun, obscure little movie called Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains (1981). The film starred Diane Lane and Laura Dern, then in their teens, as girl-punk rockers who tour with an all-male band that consists of Ray Winstone, then in his mid-20s, as well as three former members of the Sex Pistols and The Clash. Even better, the film was shot in Vancouver well before this city became the filmmaking institution that it is today, which lends the film a certain raw suburban realism. Now, Spin magazine, via GreenCine Daily, reports that the film is finally coming out on DVD next week, and I’m tempted to give it a spin, if only to see what sorts of anecdotes get told by Lane and Dern on the commentary track.
