Huffington Post article on Louise Brooks and popular music
Today, the Huffington Post ran my article on Louise Brooks and popular music. The article, "Natalie Merchant's 'Lulu' Latest Pop Tribute to Silent Film Icon Louise Brooks," features a couple of videos and a slideshow of album covers related to the silent film star. Like this one from The Freeze, a little known Scottish punk group (think The Buzzcocks meet The Cure). This 1980 single is in all likelihood the first rock tribute to the actress. Vocalist Gordon Sharp went on to work with the Cocteau Twins.
