The Punk Rock Movie

„The Punk Rock Movie“ ist eine Dokumentation, zusammengeschnitten aus Super-8-Material von Don Letts, dem DJ im Roxy Club zu Beginn von Punk von 1977 bis 79. Snip von Wikipedia:

The film captures the energy and vibrancy of this period, and features archive live footage of the bands The Clash, the Sex Pistols, Wayne County & the Electric Chairs, Generation X, Slaughter and the Dogs, The Slits, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Eater, Subway Sect, X-Ray Spex, Alternative TV and The Heartbreakers.

All live footage was shot at the Roxy except the Sex Pistols, which was filmed at the Screen On The Green Cinema in London on April 3, 1977 (Sid Vicious' first concert with the band).

Of his movie Letts wrote: „Every generation needs its own soundtrack. In 1977 punk rock was it. It inspired some people to pick up guitars, I was inspired to pick up a movie camera... It was all so new, I realised it wasn't about being just a fan, it was about getting involved... A good idea attempted is better than a bad idea perfected.“

Die komplette Doku gibts bei Amazon und nach dem Klick.
