Check this amazing footage of the legendary Plasmatics live on German TV back in 1981
They rip through three songs from their 1980 debut record, New Hope for the Wretched—“Living Dead,” “Butcher Baby,” and their psychotic cover of Bobby Darin’s 1959 hit, “Dream Lover.”
I’ve probably mentioned it before but I used to love the Dead Kennedy’s back in the day and their first album is an undeniable US punk rock classic. Not really a fan of them these days but I feel this footage of them back in 1984 is well worth sharing for a classic moment in time – let me know what you think!
Found this great old school footage of the Circle Jerks from 1985. Many felt by this point the band has lost the plot but if you watch the footage you will see they are still on point

I used to follow the LA punk scene via Skateboarder magazine and Flipside back in the early 80s, a lot of the older punks had co-opted the Adam Ant look and the hardcore punks created stickers “Black Flag Kills Ants on contact” obviously a play on the Black Flag bug spray and the two bands mentioned above.
Check this recently found super 8 footage of an Adam and the Ants instore at the legendary Tower Records on Sunset
