There are shops all over town now where you can buy pictures of naked boys with hard ons step right up and take your prick displayed on the counter. And there is also a selection of home movies with the actors hard on the cover. Instead of horrible looking Soho Jews there are beautiful kids jacking off etcetera. We could cut these movies in with the Cut Ups and show the result publically.
A reel of rare 16mm film, unearthed by University of Melbourne archivists, shows the unlikely beginnings of the careers of two brilliant performers — Germaine Greer and Kenny Everett — and their work on one of the first reality TV series. The Milk outtake, as the archivists have dubbed the second silent black and white footage, was filmed in early for a Granada TV variety show called Nice Time. It features Everett as a milkman , Greer as a housewife and a black cat. Greer sheds her gingham housecoat and slippers to take a bath in the milk that Everett has delivered. An assistant places the cat on a stool next to the bath.
In a career spanning over four decades, photographer Keith Morris had a rare, even perhaps unique ability to discover and draw out the underlying personalities of his subjects. And although best known for his iconic images of the likes of Marc Bolan, Nick Drake, and Elvis Costello, he also applied his eye to literally hundreds of other musicians, groups and indeed people from a diverse range of backgrounds, as well as the cultural and social conditions of the times he lived in. Born in in Wandsworth, South West London, Keith was educated latterly at Farnham Grammar School where he excelled as athletics captain, at 17 coming second in the national youth metres race. Perhaps uniquely in his chosen field, these relationships were unburdened by the prejudices of narrow genre categorisation, embracing everything from folk to punk to mainstream pop. He also took up long distance running, regularly finishing the London Marathon in under 3hrs 30mns to achieve Elite Group status well into his sixties.
