If this video is BANNED ...

I'm not real good at forgiveness, myself. If you've ever wronged my family, you can keep that in mind as you watch this cute as a bunny in a jumper video:

Banned: no blood, no sex, no drugs ... interesting as to what this society will not tolerate, dontcha think? She reminds me of someone real specific that I have love for, and I have to say she is one tough cookie from all I have heard.

-- the great UK rock group performing "Look Wot You Done" from 1971 when they were more rock than glam, since glam rock didn't fully kick in til 1972/73. In 1972 they released the hard rock album Slayed, featuring such timeless chant-alongs as "Gudbuy T-Jane" and "Mama Weer All Crazee Now." Then there was the song "Cum On Feel The Noize," which years later was popularized in the US by Quiet Riot. Formed in 1966, Slade's lineup was Noddy Holder (vocals/guitars /bass), Dave Hill (guitars/vocals/bass), Jim Lea (bass/guitar/vocals/keyboards/violin), and Don Powell (drums/percussion). Their most successful years were 1971 to 1974, during which time they made some truly classic hard rock and glam songs -- scoring over a dozen UK Top of the Pops hits.

I just read that rock photographer Autumn DeWilde is going to be putting out a book of Elliott Smith photos in November.  She's an LA based photographer that took many of the pics of Elliott toward the end of his career.

The book is going to come with a CD of songs from a performance at Largo.  Here's a tracklisting:

'Between the Bars'
'Clouds' (Quasi)
'All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down' ( Hank Williams Jr.)

God, "Clouds" is one of my favorite songs ever.  It was written by Sam Coomes, one of Elliott's best friends.  Elliott always had the most impeccable taste in covers. 

elliott smithLargo is a club in LA that Elliott started showing up at right after he moved there in the late 90s.  Jon Brion still performs there every Friday night.  There are many stories of Elliott drinking at the bar, then being coaxed up onstage, sometimes with Jon, sometimes with whomever was performing that night, and taking requests, jumping from instrument to instrument effortlessly, covering Beatles and metal songs.  I still want to go!

Autumn DeWilde also came to my attention through Elliott when she took the promo and album shots for Elliott's album Figure 8.  Now she takes pics for bands like the Foo Fighters and White Stripes.  Big time.
