Blood, Bondage and Skin on Film

New York in the 80’s was a weird and fucked up place, full of weirdos who gave the city its color! I was a little kid living on the west coast, but I would read the Village Voice weekly trying to see what was happening in the NYC art and punk scene. Names like Suicide, Blondie, Television, Warhol and Richard Kerns started to mean something to me – they all represented artistic freedom, which made me feel like I was not alone. Don’t even get me started about Lydia Lunch – she is an underground Goddess that I will always have a crush on. Richard Kerns has been many things in his lifetime, and one of them was a director of subversive films that pushed the limits before this term became the norm. Today I want you to check out his 1980’s short film “Submit To Me,” which is a perverse underground classic with a killer soundtrack that was provided by the Butthole Surfers (craziest band ever – but that’s another story). This film is what the Lower East Side of NYC was all about during this era…Push play and step back into a time before NYC became a corporate whore!
