Dicks from Texas, The: DVD

By Sal Lucci

The Dicks from Texas doc does a good job capturing a time and a place, the magic of the early punk/hardcore scene of Austin, Texas.

Dicks from Texas, The: DVD

By Rev. Norb

One summer Sunday in 1984 following a (San Francisco/Lynn Perko-era) Dicks show in Oshkosh, Wis., some other locals and I were hanging out with the Dicks in a park on Lake Winnebago, and came upon a party hosted by a local hair salon.

Featured DVD Review From Issue #91
The Faction Destroys O.C.
By Staff

This is an amazing document featuring one of the best,
unsung bands in West Coast hardcore history.

Oh Cool! Popular E.D.M.: VHS

By Camylle Reynolds

This VHS cassette video is spliced, diced, fuzzed-out, and clipped tidbits of blockbuster and B movies, TV shows, some infomercials, U2 concert footage—it pretty much runs the gamut. E.D.M. plays over all this, cutting in and out just as randomly as the footage.

Faction Destroys O.C., The—Cab’s 50th B-Day Bash: DVD

By Ty Stranglehold

The Faction, at some point around 2014, got back together to play some shows, culminating in this DVD which was filmed at guitarist (and legendary pro skater) Steve Caballero’s fiftieth birthday party.

Everywhere Else Makes Me Sick Vol. II: DVD

By Camylle Reynolds

Filmed like a cable access video, Everywhere Else Makes Me Sick features three Hamilton (Ontario) bands: Black Baron, Burn Victim, and Born Wrong.

I Need a Dodge: Joe Strummer on the Run: DVD

By John Mule

For me, Strummer is on par with Bob Marley or Fela Kuti. World music. Transcendence. This story is another side of a brilliant and fascinating figure.

Featured DVD Review from Issue #89
Records Collecting Dust
By Staff

Fucking great idea. 

Records Collecting Dust: DVD

By norb

This is the type of endearingly brilliant concept every half-baked and would-be-baked filmographer in the world punts themselves in the ass for not thinking of first shooting a documentary in which musicians just talk about the records that were important in their lives. Fuck, that’s genius in our time.

It’s Gonna Blow
San Diego’s Music Underground 1986-1986: DVD
By Jeff Proctor

It’s Gonna Blow is a an exceptionally entertaining look back on the San Diego music scene of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, when San Diego was coming into its own and touted as being “the next Seattle” by much of the music press.

the Gears inhabit that wonderful, early era of Americana punk rock that was more
By Staff

L.A. punk pioneers The Gears get the documentary treatment
in an ode to rock and roll in 1970s East L.A.

Don’t Be Afraid to Pogo: Movie

By John Mule

L.A. punk pioneers The Gears get the documentary treatment in an ode to rock and roll in 1970s East L.A. that the Gears inhabit that wonderful, early era of Americana punk rock that was more Buddy Holly than Johnny Rotten.

Last Pogo Jumps Again: Punk’s Last Waltz, The: DVD

By Sean Arenas

The Last Pogo Jumps Again documents the growth of Toronto as a city as well as a Petri dish for punk. Without a doubt, Last Pogo is one of the most comprehensive and inspiring documentaries on punk I’ve ever seen. Highly recommended. 

Featured DVD Reviews From Issue #85
Positive Force, Aftermass, Devo, The Brothers Gross, Clockwork Orange County
By Staff

Positive Force: More Than a Witness: 30 Years of Punk Politics in Action -
It’s one thing to yell, “Fuck the system.” It’s quite another to work to keep
people from getting fucked by the system.

Aftermass: Bicycling in a Post-Critical Mass Portland: DVD

By Sean Arenas

Aftermass provides a brief history of the social and political climates which transformed Portland, OR into a bicycle Mecca.

Brothers Gross, The: Sight & Sound DVD and CD

By Lisa Weiss

I’m a sucker for this kind of mood-elevating rock that sounds like eating a whole bag of marshmallows and pogoing away the sugar high. This is a DVD of Midwestern summer adventures with their songs as the soundtrack.

Clockwork Orange County: DVD

By jimmy

Clockwork Orange County, which was originally going under the fitting monikerWe Were Feared, is basically a rework of a much earlier film, Urban Struggle: The Battle of the Cuckoo’s Nest. Like its predecessor, it recounts the tale of the legendary Cuckoo’s Nest, an early ‘80s punk club nestled deep in the heart of one of the country’s most virulently reactionary counties.

Devo: The Men Who Make the Music: DVD

By jimmy

This is Devo’s first “video album,” originally put together in 1978/79 for Time Life.

Positive Force: More Than a Witness: 30 Years of Punk Politics in Action: DVD

By Lisa Weiss

In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, if you wanted to see Fugazi and many other great bands such as Jawbox, Nation Of Ulysses, Beefeater and Fire Party—and Basque and European politico-punk bands such as Negu Gorriak and Chumbawamba—in DC, it was most often at a show put on by Positive Force.... This film chronicles the efforts of this group through the shows they put on, the meetings they held in their community house, and the work they tried to do to affect change

Rye Coalition: The Story of the Hard Luck 5: DVD

By keith

I think the film’s greatest strength is that it serves as a great snapshot into a volatile time for both punk and the music industry as a whole, and shows a band really hustling in their prime.

Johnny Thunders, Cockney Rejects, Hardcore Norfolk
By Staff

 Director Danny Garcia is a huge Johnny Thunders fan. Huge. 
I mean, Garcia made this film about the guy, so it’s fairly obvious. 
With that said, his fandom is 
Looking for Johnny’s biggest flaw.

Looking for Johnny: The Legend of Johnny Thunders
By Michael T. Fournier

Director Danny Garcia is a huge Johnny Thunders fan. Huge. I mean, Garcia made this film about the guy, so it’s fairly obvious. With that said, his fandom is Looking for Johnny’s biggest flaw.

Hardcore Norfolk: A Story of Rock’n’Roll Survival
By Lisa Weiss

Hardcore or punk bands make up about two-third of the music featured here. The movie chronicles all kinds of self-promoted music in Norfolk, starting in the late ‘50s.... The story of Hardcore Norfolk is your story if you grew up in a shitty town, lived for music, and hung out with the few people who understood you.

East End Babylon:The Story of the Cockney Rejects
By jimmy

This is a veritable cornucopia of awesomeness for the fan, but, more importantly, it is a film that has been executed in such a way that the most casual viewer who’s never heard of the Rejects would likely find something of interest to glom onto if they happened on it while flipping through the channels some late evening.

GG Allin Uncensored
By Bryan Static

The other GG Allin was the spectacle, the pooping, vomiting, violent, and bloody mess of a man who defied you to enjoy what you saw. Though I have no problem with people enjoying the first GG Allin, this Allin is unpleasant to view and comprehend.
