Everything Counts - LIVE Student Teachers
The Second Before
Another song from Eileen Polk's short film about The Student Teachers called Being Polite for Kicks...This is "Looks" - a longtime fave of many, the song that Miuke Mike Doughty covered and the first 'single' from the new CD. Eileen and crew only caught the second half of the song because they were changing tapes...but it's enough to get the vibe and have a good laugh at yours truly being a telenovella-esque ham. :)

Happy Halloween!

The only recording I could find of us covering "Re-Make, Re-Model" by Roxy Music. We loved doing this as an encore...hi energy! And this is a super lowwwww fi recording. I think someone had a cassette recorder in their purse. Or in their drink.

This weekend was craaazy - Lou Reed, Allen Ginsberg RIchard Hell, John Cale, John Giorno, Peter Orlovsky...typical right?
