Another but VU-unrelated page from the book. (I think this post is mainly for Taxine)

Jack Smith in Ken Jacobs's Star-Spangled To Death

Yeahhh..these early times leads me crazy,such a beautiful picture !!
Huge thanks for posting iaredatsun.
Of course nothing to do with the VU, but sometimes I think we need a Jack Smith thread ':)' I'm hoping his films get shown again here soon - or a DVD release.

Taxine. I really enjoyed the Destruction of Atlantis DVD. Wonderful.

The link you sent is very good and 'Normal Love' looks and sounds pretty great there. Thank-you.

Taxine. I realised that the version of Normal Love you linked to is almost twice the length of the one I've seen on ubu.com – at 106 minutes. It's a great find. I'm surprised that this stuff is staying on youtube (who is hosting it), so I am downloading that copy.

Also found this just now:

Ken Jacobs – Blonde Cobra 1963, starring 'Jacky Smith'. 30 minutes.
