Another State of Mind is a documentary film made in the summer of 1982 chronicling the adventure (and misadventure) of two punk bands — Social Distortion and Youth Brigade — as they embark on their first international tour. Along the way they meet up with another progressive punk band, Minor Threat, whom they hang out with at the Dischord house for about a week near the end of their ill-fated tour.

Check this great interview with Chris Berry on the history of the label and how him and Richard Jones started with a Thousand Pound bank loan.

Heard a lot about this documentary on the Cockney Rejects – I know some people who have seen it at Indie Film festivals but I have yet to see it or even pick up a DVD of it – will let ya know what its like once I see it for myself – until then OI OI OI
Found this pretty cool German Documentary on the Skinhead scene – pretty fair covers the origins, the old days, the trad skins , oi skins, sharp skins and nazi skins
A lot of subtitles so even if you can’t understand fluent German, its still well worth watching
