aTelecine, or that band with a pornstar

Blake Gillespie

Sasha Grey

It took tremendous restraint not to post a nude.

Just got this press release about Sasha Grey's music project aTelecine:


Many know Sasha Grey for her starring role in Steven Soderbergh's Girlfriend Experience or as Vince Chase's girlfriend on Entourage or as the starlet on the cover of the October 2010 issue of Playboy Magazine. Although Sasha has now released two limited edition full-length LPs and a 7″ with her band aTelecine…

Pretty sure we know her as the foul-mouthed petite brunette who won 7 AVN Awards including “Best Three Way Sex Scene” for Fuck Slaves in '07, “Best Oral Sex Scene” for Babysitters in '08, AVN and XRCO Performer of the Year in '08, “Best Anal Sex Scene” in '10 for Anal Cavity Search 6 and AVN Award for The Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year? Same girl, right?

Sasha Grey is a former porn star as of a month ago, barely. She's out of the business and she's making creepy, Lynchian, death-dub, ambient music with four dudes. She's inspired by Throbbing Gristle and KMFDM. Her band is legit. Hell, we covered it months ago in our Labeled feature on Dias. Don't leave the good stuff out of the press releases; let's let her dirty porn past carry itself into her new mainstream persona, and see what assumptions about cross-over pornstars can be blown up.

aTelecine's first two records (A Cassette Tape Culture (Phase Two) and (Phase Three)) are available digitally for the first time at Pendu Sound. Expect a trilogy of records to follow, the first in July is The Falcon and the Pod with Sounds that Gods Fear and Are You Attracted to Wounded Animals to follow.
