DENTATA’S “EARWIG,” BY RICHARD KERN

Back in the day, Richard Kern did many of our covers — Robert Duvall, Kim Pierce/Chloe Sevigny/Hilary Swank, and Michelle Rodriguez, for example. Recently he gave us a shot of Sasha Grey for The Girlfriend Experience that is only in our print edition. But the truly well-viewed will remember Kern’s string of New York underground and transgressive films from the 1980s, movies like The Right Side of My Brain, Submit to Me, and Goodbye 42nd St. This new Kern music video of the band Dentata is more straight-up performance, but it still boasts his great eye and specific vibe.
