Don’t Put Out

DON’T PUT OUT is a small homage (in the form of unauthorized cover songs) to the film Ladies And Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains, a 1981 film by Lou Adler about a fictional all-girl punk band called The Stains. The message of the film, and YACHT’s single: “Don’t be an old man in a young girls’ world.”

Side A: YACHT – Waste Of Time
Side B: Suzi Corpso with YACHT – Professionals

“Waste Of Time” and “Professionals” are songs originally performed by The Stains. In DON’T PUT OUT, “Waste Of Time” is re-imagined as an apathetic bubblegum disco track, and “Professionals,” sung by Suzi Corpso with three-chord guitar backing by Claire L. Evans, as the sludgy protest song it was perhaps always meant to be.

This is about a new single YACHT‘s putting out on Marriage Records in June, covering songs from the movie Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains. The single was actually already out on iTunes and Emusic, but has since been removed.  A 12″ on DFA will contain a dub version and a remix.

A dub version of “Waste of Time” and a remix by Hedford Vachal will be featured on the next YACHT 12” single on DFA Records.

Hedford Vachal are Brad Vachal and Eric Hedford, two bearded colossi of the Portland, Oregon music scene; one a founding father of the dance scene in the Pacific Northwest, and the other an original member of the Dandy Warhols.

YACHT will also be hitting the English roads with Patrick Wolf starting this weekend. Check them out! Their new album See Mystery Lights is out July 28th on DFA.
