What Did You Expect?: The Archers Of Loaf Live at Cat’s Cradle
By Kurt Morris

I still love the Archers Of Loaf and will listen to them regularly, but now know that should they go on tour and come to my city, I certainly have no reason to go see them. That’s not just because I’ve seen them live on DVD, but because they don’t seem to put on much of a live show.

By Keith Rosson

Apart from folks who were in the basement at the time and want to try and see if they can discern a friend, colleague, or bandmate in the dimness, I don’t think there’s any reason why someone else would ever need to watch this.

Last Shop Standing: The Rise, Fall and Rebirth of the Independent Record Shop
By Kurt Morris

Damned, The: Live Live Live in London 2002 Tiki Nightmare
By MP Johnson

There’s a guy in a monkey suit playing drums, a goofy tiki-themed volcanic backdrop, and Hawaiian dancers. The sound is great and it’s professionally shot.

Bath Salt Zombies
By MP Johnson

Within the first few minutes of this no-budget horror flick, a guy gets fucked up on bath salts and gnaws the face off of a girl who just finished doing a striptease in front of him. This is essentially the movie asking, “Are you in or out?”

Maximum Summer: The Bepstein Documentary
By Donna Ramone

Maximum Summer is about Ben Epstein, from The Max Levine Ensemble, and his ability to "fun" harder than any person alive.

Beijing Punk
By Paul J. Comeau

The Taxpayers go to Florida with The Wild!
By Matthew Hart

John Hillerman: Dat Woret: DVD

By Garrett Barnwell

German party punks John Hillerman (named after the guy who played Higgins on the ‘80s TV classic Magnum P.I.) deliver a well-packaged DVD/CD combo with an extensive booklet.

Punk Machine, The: DVD

By Garrett Barnwell

This DVD would probably appeal to fans of Citizen Fish/Subhumans as well as anyone who is interested in U.K.-based punk. After getting over my obvious disappointment in not getting an inspirational story I rather enjoyed it.

Circle Jerks: My Career as a Jerk: DVD

By Paul J. Comeau

Markey, a friend and fan of the band, has been filming them since the early ‘80s. This documentary traces their history better than anyone else could hope to do, mixing archival footage with interviews from virtually every living person whoever took the stage as a member of the band.

$5 ppd., 5½” x 8”, 56 pgs.
By Matt Average

This issue breaks away from the format of the first two and interviews a ton of bands like Coke Bust, Punch, Street Pizza, Curmudgeon, Sectarian Violence, BearTrap, and more.

Jack Clutton’s Guided Tour

By Mark Twistworthy

Featuring footage shot primarily by Culture Shock/Citizen Fish/Rhythmites member Jasper, the live footage spans a nearly thirty year period and includes bands like Subhumans, Citizen Fish, A-Heads, Witch Hunt, Chumbawamba, Leftover Crack, Star Fucking Hipsters, Heated Rollers, Embrace The Kill, and Rhythmites.

Ecology of Mind, An
A Daughter’s Portrait of Gregory Bateson
By Aphid Peewit

Gregory Bateson: his work, along with his colleagues at the Macy Conferences in the 1940s, figured enormously in the development of cybernetics, which in turn laid the groundwork for the development of Al Gore’s much beloved Internet, which of course, brings things like chubby, sobbing British girls into our lives.

Ear Goggles #6

By Lauren Trout

This is a badass DVD zine featuring live performances from twenty-six punk bands in Canada, along with some other odds and ends.

$3, , 8 ½” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 24 pgs.
By Steve Hart

Here’s a skinnier zine that has interviews with GG King, 8 Lines, Foreign Objects, and the Mallwalkers with a screen printed cover on thick cardstock.

New Low: DVD

By Matthew Hart

The characters and settings are relatable to the non-ambitious, bike riding adults found in bars and dumpsters across America.

The Spears:
Live: DVD
By Sean Koepenick

Killer-looking video with superior sound from this Tampa hardcore outfit. Featuring members of Down By Law and Pink Lincolns, so you know that it is full throttle from start to finish.

Never Get out of the Van:
The Story of Mustard Plug: DVD
By Steve Hart

The interviews with members and former members—interspersed with live videos and directed videos—were fun to watch and told an interesting story of a band who, against all odds, skanked their way out of the Midwest.

Trantastic: DVD

By Andy Conway

This gets my highest recommendation to avoid.

From the Back of the Room: DVD

By Katie Dunne

The scope is a fantastic sample of women who felt outside of, or indifferent to, the concepts of feminist punk in the ‘90s and women who have specifically and adamantly decided to play music with other women for political or personal reasons.

William S. Burroughs: A Man Within: DVD

By Aphid Peewit

A Man Within—which derives its title from Burroughs’s cat book A Cat Within—examines the writer’s multifaceted influence on the various postmodern subcultures, but seems to focus most of its attention on his sway within the gay and punk communities.

Fleshtones: Pardon Us for Living but the Graveyard Is Full
By Sal Lucci

one of the first bands to show their ‘60s garage influences on their punk sleeves.

Dwarves, The: The Dwarves are Born Again
By Aphid Peewit

Isn’t a floppy, limp dick antithetical to the Dwarves’ brand of lust-engorged teenage testicle rock?

Stitches—Live at Der Wienerschnitzel 2003, The
By Andy Conway

“Welcome to Der Wienerschnitzel, may I take your order please? “ “Yeah, I want one messy and chaotic live set in the parking lot by snotty California punk rock band, the Stitches.  I want the band and the crowd to fling chili dogs and other debris at each other during the entire thing and it should be recorded for posterity on a shaky handheld camcorder. Release it on DVD years later, please.”
