Southern California Punk Rock Documentary

Youtube suggested this video to me the other day and I got curious as the frame was of famed 80s pro skateboarder Steve Olson. Its a great documentary on the early days of the Orange County Punk rock scene in the late 70s early 80s. Featuring Interviews from Henry Rollins and Chuck from Black Flag, Keith Morris from the Circle Jerks, Pro Skaters Duane Peters and Steve Olson, Joe from the Vandals , Jack Grisham from TSOL and so many more who played the Cuckoo’s Next back in the late 70s early 80s.

Who Killed Nancy? Sid and Nancy Documentary

“Sid Vicious was Innocent” was the name of a song on the 1982 Exploited album “Troops of Tomorrow” I used to love that song but at the time I was like “yeah right of course he is” Over the year even before the internet there was talk that he actually might have been innocent and set up by a local low life druggie friend of theirs. Since this time there have been various books and documentaries delving into the entire sordid state of affairs – Check out who killed Nancy here:

Rad Black Flag Documentary

I used to be a HUGE Black Flag fan back in the day. I was messing about on Youtube today and found this Black Flag documentary – great stuff from Rollins, Keith Morris, Flea, Raymond Pettibon and many more. If you were a fan back then or still are you’re going to love this documentary. I never knew that at one point the band was going to be called “Rope” Check it out here and leave a comment below on your thoughts

Full Sex Pistols Tour of London ● Johnny Rotten ● Sid Vicious ● Steve Jones ● Paul Cook (2009)

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

Rare Amebix Documentary – Amebix Risen

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
