Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains  (directed by Lou Adler, Up in Smoke  and ex owner of Dunhill and Ode record labels) is a marvellous film that captures the trappings of fame, life on the road and general chaos experienced in rock ‘n’ roll.  Released in 1982 although made in 1980, with additional footage shot two years later to offer a more positive ending to same.  It tells the story of an all female punk/new wave band The Fabulous Stains from Pennsylvania.  Looking like sixties group The Shaggs, led by the arrogant and distrustful Corinne “third degree” Burns  played by Diane Lane

samantha robson i hate the oscars zani 1

The Oscars in their entire stupid splendor just crashed by again. And I, as usual forced myself to sit and watch the Greek Gods of the 21st century parade across my TV screen. I’m not sure why I watch it – I don’t enjoy it. Yes, I go to the movies and I have an opinion as to who should win, but we all know, the Oscars are about money and entertainment politics –
