Cult Night Flight movie finally comes to DVD

Being a teen in the early 80s, I enjoyed staying up late and watching the cult movies that were found on late night TV. One of my favorite shows (if you could call it a show) was Night Flight (on the USA Network), which always delivered bizarre and interesting stuff to my head. But of all the things that I remember watching those late nights, one movie stands out as something that I've always wanted to see again: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains.

It was a story of a female punk rock band that hit it big and I remember thinking that it was pretty good. I also remember falling asleep (or having to go to bed) before it ended, so it's something that I've always wanted to finish watching, but I never saw it aired on TV again. I later discovered that the movie was never released in theatres nor on video, which added to my curiousity. Over the last few years, I've been trying to find a copy and I finally bought a bootleg at Comic-Con a few years ago. Unfortunately, the quality of the video on that bootleg was not very good, I'm a bit of snob when it comes to what I'll bring myself to watch and I've never actually watched the thing. Instead, I've been waiting and hoping for a better copy to show up.

Well, it appears that my wait is almost over. According to a new item from USA Today, the Fabulous Stains are coming to DVD on September 16, courtesy Rhino. I, for one, am looking forward to finally seeing this movie again and I am thrilled that it will be an official release that has to look better than my bootleg.
