“Not very many people saw it, but everyone who did started a band.” – Washington Post

Starring Diane Lane and Laura Dern alongside members of the Clash and Sex Pistols, this Vancouver-shot cult favourite inspired a generation of female musicians. Corinne Burns is a typical frustrated teenager living in a nowhere town until she catches punk band the Looters. Bewitched by the whole punk scene, she and her fledgling band, the Stains, join the tour, and in no time at all become media magnets. The band forms a rabid following of young women, while Corrine begins a relationship with the Looters singer. As the Stains get bigger and bigger, however, Corinne’s ambition gets the better of her.

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains
