The New York Dolls performing in drag, 1974

Club 82, at 82 East 4th Street in New York’s East Village, was a well-known “high class” drag club of the 50s and 60s where the likes of Walter Winchell, Elizabeth Taylor and Errol Flynn could be seen. Down on its luck in the 70s, the space was transformed into a glam-rock club and later a disco.

In this clip, the New York Dolls, in drag (save for Johnny Thunders), perform “Pills” at Club 82 on April 17, 1974. I’m presuming this was shot by Bob Gruen, but I’m not sure.

‘The Dinner of the Lonely Man’: A film from the fabulous world of Augustin Rebetez

Augustin Rebetez gives answers to questions that are as quirky and idiosyncratic as his films.

The Swiss conceptual photographic artist and film-maker describes himself as “a sad child full energy.” I don’t know whether he is sad or not, but his work is certainly full of energy and boundless imagination. I was particularly impressed with his stop animation film The Dinner of the Lonely Man, which he tells me was made “With my hands” over “Some nights.”

It is a beautifully eerie, funny, Lynchean dream, that tells the story of “The painting of Ulf, the old owner of a house in Norway who was living there alone.” Now you know.

This isn’t his only film, “The others who exist already are more epileptic that this one,” and his work has been exhibited and screened across the world.

Augustin’s only aim when making art or films is: “I try to be honest and to present good stuff.” He certainly does that, and in an amusing and highly original way.

He is currently working on “Some stuff, one new film which is called maison.” Check out more from the highly talented Mr. Rebetez here.

Finnish pop star gets whipped into submission by leather-clad Amazons

Danny, the Elvis years.
 
Re-discovered in recent years via his viral video of the Abba-esque atrocity “I Want To Love You Tender”, Finnish pop star Danny (Ilkka Lipsanen) could plumb the dark side as well as perform sugar-coated fluff. In this video, Danny channels Jim Morrison as he sings apocalyptic versions of “For Your Love” and “House Of The Rising Sun” while being whipped by leather-clad Louise Brooks look-a-likes and beaten by a bunch of shaggy-haired punks.

Somewhere between The Lizard King and Bobby Sherman flails the enigmatic and oh-so silly Danny. Let the “wiolence” begin.

Last night we (finally) watched the seventh episode of Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy. Some of the trippiest television I’ve seen in some time. I mean, a Brian Eno Frisbee!? A Bryan Ferry kite!? How creative! Just watch.

When I posted the Lemmy needlepoint cross stitch yesterday by Defiant Damsel, I somehow missed the above Pepsi cross stitch. It’s still available for $35.00 + shipping.

And if you’re feeling really adventurous, there’s a Henry Rollins portrait pattern for $6.00.

Update:

Dangerous Minds reader Chris Bickel says, “This is a picture of me with Mary Woronov taken just last weekend. When I asked her if I could get a picture of her handing me a Pepsi, she knew instantly what I was referring to.”

“Hey Mike - your Mom gave *ME* a Pepsi.”

Poet Adrienne Rich has died

Adrienne Rich May 16, 1929 – March 27, 2012.

Poet Adrienne Rich was a pioneering feminist and alchemist. Her alchemical compounds were composed of vowels and consonants. She showed us that words, spun from a revolutionary tongue, point the direction while embodying the essence of the destination. The poem arrives at itself with the immediacy of sunlight striking glass.
