Alex Knost’s Gilded Palace of Sin and Bonzers
Watch Tin Ojeda’s new short film, “Chrysler New Yorker”
While there’s plenty to discuss in Tin Ojeda’s sepia-toned slice of Al Knost’s personal life, “Chrysler New Yorker”—which finds Knost navigating two uniquely American vehicles, a Chrysler New Yorker, and a Campbell Brothers bonzer (perhaps a Rush Short Model?)—the real star of this edit is Gram Parsons.
Has a star ever burned as brightly? Decidedly not. A man of true mythical proportion. A Byrd. A Flying Burrito Brother. An honorary Rolling Stone. Emmylou’s main squeeze, a psych-country visionary, and a junky of the highest order. And it seems Ojeda and Knost have fallen down a GP rabbit hole, bookending this 11-minute clip with two of his masterpieces, FBB’s “Hot Burrito #1” and “Wild Horses” which Parsons wrote with the Stones and released on his own, with their blessing, before Sticky Fingers came out in ’71.
All this to say: thankfully, it isn’t another clip pulsing with EDM or brightly reverberating with surfy Southern California garage rock.
