I loved the Sex Pistols growing up (in fact Nevermind the bollocks still holds up today as one of the greatest rock n roll records of all time). When I was first getting into punk I devoured any book or magazine that had something on the Sex Pistols, keep in mind kids i am talking 1977-78 Australia a long long time before the interwebz. Anyhoo I just discovered this documentary today even though it was shot 7 years ago. Its great to see Steve Jones, Glen Matlock and Paul Cook go back to their old stomping grounds regaling us of tales of crappy clubs, dirty rehearsal rooms and filthy flats. Check it out and see what you think
My buddy sent me this link today to some super rare early footage of TSOL. Filmed in OC at Orange Coast College (probably one of those free lunch gigs) during the last days of the real TSOL before Jack left. Its a good mix of punk classics and their 1982 new wave record. Weird as fuck outfits which is 100% TSOL finery. Enjoy!
I loved the Amebix growing up – what they did was so different from every other “punk” band out there. I mean I don’t even know if you could call it “punk” per se but in the true spirit of “do your own thing” I guess yes it was definitely punk..although I think more appropriately you could say it was the “sound track to the apocalypse” Check out this rare documentary on the band and let me know what you think
I am not the world’s biggest Bad Brains fan but their influence on the US HC scene is undeniable.
Check out this pretty cool documentary on them – grab the popcorn as its nearly 2 hrs long. Enjoy!
