“Nothing happened in my childhood—no trauma or anything. I just had a genetic disposition toward things that were horrible.”

The worst case scenario would be someone that didn’t speak the language, so we couldn’t really tell what they were doing. But immediately the locks go down. And it smells. We ride one block, and they turn around and blow both our heads off.”

Needless to say, this scenario didn’t play out when I went hitchhiking with John Waters in NYC.

There’s a Soundgarden documentary in the works, from the team behind Super Duper Alice Cooper. Says co-director Reginald Harkema:

“We’re going to concentrate on [the ’90s] era mostly. It’ll probably be like 70 to 75 percent mid-’80s to the breakup, and then catch up on the reunion and the present day. We’d like to shoot some big special concert, and maybe use that as a structural spine. We’re going to shoot all the interviews so they’re more on-camera, so you can kind of get the emotion in the faces. There’s a lot of stuff that they went through, and a lot of stuff that they [shrug off], that I think we can dig deep underneath, and get back to how they felt emotionally at the time.”

krecs:

Family, cult, gang, garage band; Girl Trouble has been perceived as all of these things. Strictly Sacred is the intensely personal account of the group’s 30 years in the Northwest music scene. Hailing from the depressed city of Tacoma Washington, the band developed a unique brand of infectious garage dance music which they soon brought to Olympia, Seattle, and the other surrounding territories. Bon Von Wheelie (drums), The Big Kahuna (guitar), Dale Phillips (bass), and K.P. Kendall (vocals) were soon courted by K records, Subpop, PopLlama, Empty, and Estrus. Alas, they have eluded fame since 1984.

Director Isaac Olsen is related to the band by blood and has used his unlimited resources to full, uncompromising effect to craft a documentary that gets closer to it’s subjects than any handful of Rock and Roll films. Featuring rare performances, home movies, and probing interviews with Calvin Jonhson, Neko Case, and Art Chantry. This is unfiltered Girl Trouble, up close and personal.
