Boy/Girl - Sort Sol featuring Lydia Lunch from Danish TV (1984)

I was introduced to Sort Sol while living in Copenhagen back in 1987. Still own and play this 7" and the Everything That Rises Must Converge Album. A incredible band that was probably just one step away from popping up on a Giorno Poetry Systems LPs of the mid 80's. I still kick myself for not picking up the 1988 limited edition live double Lp (i think there were like 50 made or something crazy like that) that William S. Burroughs, another Sort Sol collaborator, did the liner notes for.

Back in '79, before they were known as Sort Sol they were Sods. Here's a great song about the motorcycle gang wars that raged through Copenhagen for almost two decades.

Just discovered this series over at one of my new favorite design blogs: Ready for the House. If I owned one of these, I'd be tempted to hang it upside-down. Looks like he's in a last ditch attempt to hold on to the bottom of a giant asteroid.
