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 Alvarado

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 Alvarado

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 Rosson

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.


Featured DVD Reviews from issue #84
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
DVD
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
DVD
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
DVD
By Jimmy Alvarado

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
DVD
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.


Featured DVD Reviews from Issue #81
Grant Hart talking about Grant Hart
By Rev. Norb




Tony Molina: Blitzed and Remissed: Live at The Echo 3/10/14
VHS tape
By Daryl Gussin

It’s a cool artifact, but if you’re interested in truly being able to grasp the live experience, this isn’t the ticket.


Mondo Fuzz: Twilight of the Idles
DVD
By Lisa Weiss

This film visits all the music holes, record stores, and burger joints where the likes of The Bad Lovers and Woven Bones are the pied pipers who lead our youth down the path of perversion.Live footage, interviews, and lots of vintage movie clips combine to create a documentary for the ages.


Every Everything: The Music, Life and Times of Grant Hart
DVD
By Rev. Norb

There are no testimonial snippets from bandmates, or relatives, or drug buddies, or ex-lovers, or scene luminaries; no external voices to help spackle together a portrait of This Enigmatic Grant Hart Fellow. It’s just Grant Hart, telling us what he would like us to know about the music, life, and times of Grant Hart.


Devo: The Complete Truth About De-Evolution
DVD
By Ty Stranglehold

This DVD compiles most, if not all, of Devo’s early videos. It is really amazing to watch and wonder how the mainstream managed to embrace the band, even if it was only for a nanosecond.


Punk in Africa: DVD

By Sean Arenas

Punk in Africa is an awe-inspiring film that confirms that punk, in its essence, functions most potently as a protest device and as a means to liberate a radical consciousness.


Only the Young and Tchoupitoulas: DVD

By Indiana Laub

This double-disc set contains two documentaries from Oscilloscope Laboratories. The films are set on opposite sides of the country, but their themes of adolescent innocence and exploration draw them together.





Dragon City: Punk Rock in China: DVD

By Rev. Norb

To wit, four hardy, young lads, living the usual hardscrabble existence of the post-apocalypse come across an expat American who is sorta like a cross between George Carlin and Stan Lee, and lives in what he claims is the last fully-functional nightclub on earth, Dragon City.


D.O.A.: To Hell N’ Back: DVD

By Sean Koepenick

This brand new video documents the farewell tour of these Canadian punk legends. Two shows at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, BC bookend this release. Both of these seemed fairly well-attended, this being their hometown and all. 


Tribute to Ron Asheton: Featuring Iggy & the Stooges & Special Guests: DVD

By MP Johnson

This DVD isn’t about Iggy anyway. It’s about former Stooges Guitarist Ron Asheton. The current lineup of the Stooges pays tribute the only way they know how—by just destroying everything with music.


Ten Years War, The: DVD

By Paul J. Comeau

Tor Johnson Records has been an integral part of the Providence, RI, and greater New England music scene for over ten years. In May of 2012, a number of past and current bands from the label’s roster came together to celebrate the label’s ten year anniversary. 


In Heaven There Is No Beer: DVD

By MP Johnson

The film documents the creation of a small, closely-knit music scene in a big city, and how it all fell apart because of the usual bullshit: greed, in-fighting, and pettiness.


Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust: DVD

By Rev. Norb

Since the ‘80s, this Aussie trio—sort of like the missing link between Cream and the Lurkers, or arguably the antipodal equivalent of the Dictators—has drunkenly thundered out jillions of slabs of ear-pulping muck, and this documentary takes you from their roots ((rural Australian teenagers who somehow get hold of punk records and then there goes the neighborhood)) to the present ((rural Australian fifty-somethings worrying about losing the family farm they’ve had for three generations)).


Tribute to Ron Asheton: Featuring Iggy & the Stooges & Special Guests: DVD

By Rev. Norb

Full disclosure: I only love about half the first Stooges album, I think Fun House pretty much sucks, and I generally find watching concert DVDs about as exciting as watching other people making out. That said, I like this DVD just fine.
