I was told that the Monks movie was being released by Rumor from Brooklyn this year. Is this the same thing that they're putting out? I actually talked with the guys from Rumor at the Koch convention and didn't realise they were responsible for this flick until after I talked to them. I need some more info please!!!

I'd look it up myself but I'm going to bed.

Goodnight!

i'm sure that anyone who was interested now knows that the Red Kross gig at this fest is sold out.

there's a listing of bands on their website: http://www.dontknocktherock.com

if you want to come make fun of me, cheer me on or give me moral support, i am on a panel hosted by michael des barres and allison anders on sunday july 2 from 2:30 - 3:30 PM. my photos plus those of dawn wirth and jenny lens will be in a slide show - our slide show also opens the festival, as each of us has pictures in the gun club documentary, which is the opening movie.

kid congo, terry graham, ward dotson plus guest vocalists - some of whom will really turn you on - are playing gun club songs after the screening. for those of you who don't know, kid, terry and ward were members of the gun club

THE FILM

Ghost On The Highway: A Portrait Of Jeffrey Lee Pierce And The Gun Club
(Kurt Voss, 2006, 98 minutes)
Ghost On The Highway is a provocative study, which examines and celebrates the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce in all his puckish, shit-stirring glory. The film is a two-fingered salute in honor of Pierces legendary band The Gun Club, one of the most notorious and incendiary in the history of American popular music.

With comprehensive interviews with ex-Gun Club members Kid Congo Powers, Ward Dotson, Terry Graham, Jim Duckworth and Dee Pop, as well as observations and revelations from Pierce intimates such as Dave Alvin (The Blasters), John Doe (X), Henry Rollins (Black Flag; Rollins Band), Mike Martt (Tex and The Horseheads) and Peter Case (The Plimsouls). Ghost delivers new insights into the volatile psyche of bandleader Jeffrey Lee Pierce, who died at age 37 after a life of self-abuse which was, by turns, both riotous and tragic.

Still criminally undervalued, The Gun Club was the first group to fuse punk and blues, thus paving the way for more high profile contemporary acts like The White Stripes. The Gun Clubs music is timeless and Vosss homage to the band he loves is destined to be as ever lasting.the filmmakers

THE FILMMAKERS
Kurt Voss (Director/Producer) is a Gun Club fan since 1981.
Andrew Powell (Producer/Editor/Composer) has been a film/TV composer for 20 years and makes his feature film editing debut with Ghost on the Highway.


THE BAND:

GUN CLUB with Ward Dotson, Terry Graham, and Special Guests
"When I was a girl of age 6 I was often toted along to various shindigs, with your festival founder, Allison Anders, and Ghost on the Highway director Kurt Voss. There was one party in particular that I will never forget. I spotted a very odd looking woman with bleached blonde hair and too much make-up, wearing a plaid skirt. She was all on her lonesome chomping on some party food in the corner. She had a button of what appeared to be a photo of herself on her blazer. The curious and inquisitive child I was, I asked my mother, Why does that woman have a pin of herself on her jacket? My mother answered Honey, thats not a woman, thats Jeffrey Lee Pierce, and the button on his jacket is Debbie Harry. Needless to say, from there on out, I became a huge Jeffrey Lee Pierce and Gun Club fan. DKTR is proud to present this very special once in a lifetime reunion with original members of legendary Los Angeles punk/blues band The Gun Club." ~ Tiffany Anders

ok....here's the last bit o spam from allison:

After yesterday's mellow Sunday, there is no more rest for the wickedly raccous!

NOON: Today, our last day of the 3rd annual Don't Knock The Rock Film And Music Festival, we start you off with the post punk mad journey that is Dave Markey's "Lovedolls Superstar"! Starring all of the post punk scene-stars: Jeff and Steve McDonald, Jennifer Schwartz, Annette Zilinskas, Jello Biafra, Bangle Vicki Peterson and more...awesome soundtrack!

2:15 Following Markey's film, Criterion Collection presents "Border Radio" by -- hey -- me and Kurt Voss! To be released on DVD by Criterion at the end of the year -- we made this feature in the mid 80s with co-director Dean Lent and peppered our cast with LA punk elite: John Doe, Chris D, Dave Alvin, Texacala Jones and more with an amazing score for first timers Dave Alvin and Steve Berlin, good enough to be ripped off by Oliver Stone for "Wall Street". Also starrring Luanna Anders and Chris Shearer. John Doe's first on screen performance!

here's the shamless self promo!Missed the movie? Head over to the REDCAT nook and join in a discussion of 3 LA women photographers who shot the punk rock era: 1977-1983. These are the women who created the digital photo exhibit you've been enjoying throughout the festival: Jenny Lens, Theresa Kereakes, and Dawn Wirth.

4:30pm Then from post punk madcap to country surreal -- the AMAZING Morgan Neville/Robert Gordon film: "Shakespeare Was A Big George Jones Fan: The Home Movies Of Cowboy Jack Clement" with legendary Sun Records producer songwriter Jack Clement, Johnny Cash, June Carter (as you have never seen them before!) Waylon Jennings and various country legends outlaws and cut-ups! Funny, strange, beautiful, and like no other film I've ever seen! You don't want to miss this! this IS a good one!

And at 8pm: ENCORE GUN CLUB!!

Kurt Voss's "Ghost On The Highway" closes the festival with the same bang it opened us with, followed by another insanely kickass performance by Ward Dotson, Terry Graham and guests! INCLUDING OUR VERY OWN LEON CATFISH!!!!!
