Cover Me Babe (1970). This obscure movie deserves its obscurity, but it does have a far-out opening and a couple of groovy songs from Bread
With all this freakin’ hot weather lately I can’t help but reblog many photos of naked women in and around the water. I feel a little guilty about that, so i’ve decided to personally make up for it some via a screenshot from our groovy psychedelic film We’ve Gotta Fly
When we sell the DVD of our groovy film at our shows, in comes encased in this very far-out cover, the artwork of which was designed by my very talented friend Samantha. The only difference is that weird rectangle thingie on the “V” isn’t really there …
Today begins the serialization of our feature-length Desert Soap film We’ve Gotta Fly. This is part 1 of 10. I don’t wanna say too much about it other than it’s worth watching if you like far-out films about music, nature, and love. Here is the official blurb which we put on the back of the dvd cover: “This film documents and dramatizes the Chicago-based soft rock band’s Desert Soap’s quest for grooviness (circa 2011) in a pleasantly psychedelic way”
… and a few more stills. I used quite a bit of Super 8 in the film. It was expensive but very well worth it.
Here is a still of one of the many psychedelic moments from our Desert Soap film. I don’t know if I mentioned this in my February blog about it (and I guess i’m too lazy to check right now), but one thing we were trying to do was make a band film that included all of the groovy elements that a band film (or “group” film) would have contained if it were made 40 years before. As I said last time, we seem to have succeeded. More stills and info later today
“Standing in the doorway of love” - that’s pretty cheesy. It’s a cheesy song title a least, but I wouldn’t have any trouble using it as a lyric. I’m certainly not afraid of cheesiness, but it has to be done right
