'Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains'

Rock 'n Roll Will Never Die! continues at Trailers from Hell, with filmmaker Ti West introducing "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains."

Nearly a lost film, music maven Lou Adler’s cheerful 1982 film about an inadvertent punk band was shot under the title All Washed Up and was shelved after a disastrous preview, only to be revived on the art house circuit in 1985. At one point there was only one surviving print, which was frequently programmed at Santa Monica’s Nuart Theater. Diane Lane and Laura Dern are the not-so-fabulous Stains with various real life rockers (including Steve Jones, Paul Simonon and Fee Waybill) fleshing out their rival bands. Cinematography by Bruce Surtees, the DP behind the majority of Clint Eastwood’s more iconic films.

    Great video! Diane Lane was actually 15 when the bulk of the film was shot. She was born in 1965 and much of it was shot in the fall of 1980. It was her 2nd or 3rd film with 'A Little a Romance' being her first. There is an excellent DVD available on Amazon etc. ciao
