Audio: YACHT, “Waste of Time” (Fabulous Stains cover)

May 15, 2009

We are kind of, how you say, obsessed with the movie Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains, which chronicled an all-girl teen punk band trying to do something authentic and worthwhile. We saw it on late night TV when we were wee and it stuck with us as we drowned ourselves in Bikini Kill 7"s and proto-blog fanzines. When it got reissued on DVD last year we wrote about it in our magazine, we have posters of the star, a Nina Hagen'd-out Diane Lane, hanging all over our office. We also love YACHT, the mystical Cascadian duo whose new record comes out this July on DFA, and we extra extra love them for covering this Fabulous Stains track so apathetically and therefore perfectly. It's from their "Don't Put Out" 7", which is a reference to the film's most memorable line, a diatribe Lane delivers from the stage: "I'm perfect, but nobody in this shithole gets me cause I don't put out!"
