The Video - Lisa Marie Presley's "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet"

Lisa Marie Presley 'You Ain't Seen Nothin Yet'

You can think that I'm evil and I'm off the rails; you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Grammatical qualms aside, here's a surprisingly decent atmospheric, brooding, slice of country blues where la belle Lisa Marie channels her inner Shirley Manson.

Yeah, it's almost as good as the Bachman Turner Overdrive ditty of the same name!

It seems a defiant Ms. Presley has done something firmly out of line with her former behaviour (or beliefs) - something clearly anathema to that former way of life - but, instead of repenting, she's going to do a shitload more of the same .... and worse!

You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" is a song that could be interpreted as a big "fuck you" to the insidious cult of so-called "Scientology" which (like her momma Priscilla) Lisa was a long time member of, before (at least, rumour has it) leaving the cult, shortly before this song was written. Lisa, however, has not made any public statements regarding the issue.

Writtten by James Bryan McCollum and Sacha Skarbek, You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" was the lead single to the surprisingly good 2012 LP "Storm and Grace" (which featured songs from the like of as Richard Hawley, Ed Harcourt, Sacha Skarbek and Fran Healy ), produced by some guy called called T Bone Burnett.

It comes replete with an interesting moody vid; which again contains some references to Scientology.
