Attn: Fans of Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains / YACHT Cover single and Tour

June 16, YACHT, (Young Americans Challenging High Technology), issued a limited run of 1000 7" singles titled We don't Put Out, which I blogged previously. The record features unauthorized covers of two songs from the classic punk rock / new wave / riot grrl film Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains, which were performed in the film by The Stains. The electronic versions of the tracks on the limited 7" are "Waste Of Time" and "Professionals." Jona of YACHT has also informed me that a remix and dub version of Waste of Time appear on their new "Psychic City" single digitally available via iTunes.

I called various record shops over the past few months and none had any idea what I was prattling on about, but it is still available via the band's label click here and at 5 bucks it's a steal.

Back Story:
"Don't Put Out" is a quote from Diane Lane's character, leader of the Stains, Corinne "Third Degree" Burns. The film features a very young Diane Lane, and Laura Dern. Paul Simonon (The Clash), Steve Jones and Paul Cook (of The Sex Pistols), and Fee Waybill (The Tubes), also appear in the movie. According to Yacht, the message inspired by the film, and conveyed on the single, is "Don't be an old man in a young girls' world." The songs "Waste Of Time" and "Professionals" were originally performed by all female faux band The Stains, from the 1981 Lou Adler film.

This movie is one of my all time favorites, and I suggest you rent or buy it. It only aired a few times on late night "alternative' format video / art/ film shows, such as USA Nightflight. That's where I saw it, and VH1 played it once, proving their lameness, and never aired it again. The film was sparsely scattered via various means in bootleg form, but finally, after years of fan petitions it was issued on DVD.
