BIG BOYS -- Houston, Texas 1982 (50 minutes)

Legendary Austin,Texas band BIG BOYS! One of the first skatepunk bands (making them all that more exceptional, since they were from Texas and not the typical California skate scene!) and also one of the first hardcore bands with openly gay members, BIG BOYS were on the forefront of the new hardcore movement and indeed guitarist Tim Kerr would go on to be a major force in the punk scene, and release essential records by many bands on his record label.

WORLD OF SKINHEAD -- documentary, 1995, 52 minutes

WORLD OF SKINHEAD tells it like it is, from all walks and ALL RACES of skinhead life, and sets the record straight. For those who only know the propagandist slant of racism that the media feeds the public this is a must view film.The documentary here delves into the beginnings of the movement and it's influence on both ska and reggae as well as it's later influence on punk and still later those who would corrupt it's early designs and adopt it for racist and socialist ideals.

LOS CRUDOS --- live 1995, Cleveland Hardcore Fest, 23 minutes

The Cleveland Hardcore Fest took place over three days in 1995, and from the moment I arrived I knew I was in for a horrible time.What the organizers considered "hardcore" were bands like HOT WATER MUSIC,JIHAD,and (you gotta be kidding me)FIFTEEN!

However, the weekend was not a complete waste when LOS CRUDOS, one of the the only true hardcore bands on the schedule finally played their set.CRUDOS were at their peak at this time, smack dab in the very middle of their time together (beginning in '91 and breaking up in '98). While i was not a fan of their straight edge lifestyle, their stance on certain other aspects and politics more than made up for the SxEx lyrics that were really only a small part of their repertoire.The band expresses their disgust over the "rock star" mentality of the festival and of the people in attendance in particular,and pulls no punches in their set.This was most definitely the only high point of the Fest, and i had completely forgotten all about this show until i stumbled on this vid earlier today (it HAS been 16 years, after all!).

ASTA KASK--live 2004, 40 minutes

Legendary Swedish hardcore band ASTA KASK have just finished up their first ever American tour (sadly they didn't play anywhere close enough for me to go see them--grrr!), and i thought i might share this great live set from a festival in Hulstfred, 2004.Amazing set and so much energy, considering they've been around since at least 1978 (they began as X-TAS in '78 and changed their name to ASTA KASK in 1980)!Brutal ,blazing hardcore!This is how it's done, kiddies!

THE DAY THE COUNTRY DIED: A History Of Anarcho Punk --documentary -92 minutes

Those of you who have followed this blog for any length of time know that I am loathe to post/embed any vids from youtbe whatsoever.If i can't find what I'm looking for on an alternate video site then chances are I will just move on to another video/topic.
This vid,however, is an exception for several reasons.First, despite all my attempts to find it on the many other video hosting sites i frequent (and trust me, there are many, many of them--mostly located outside of the United States)youtube seems to be the only place i could find it.
Second: the importance of this documentary and the time period,bands,and ideas which it represents can not be under estimated.
Third: there's something of a nice little "fuck you" implied by using a billion dollar corporation to get a message of DIY and anarchy out there to the people.

This 2007 documentary, made as a companion piece to the 2004 book of the same name, features interviews and performances by many of the anarcho-punk mainstays of the time it represents including SUBHUMANS,CRASS,CHUMBAWUMBA,RUBELLA BALLET,CONFLICT,AMEBIX,TOXIC WASTE and many more.

(If anyone can find an embed code NOT from youtube, please let me know and i will gladly replace the video!)

FALSE PROPHETS-- live 1987,Grand Blanc Mi-- 53 minutes

the Legendary FALSE PROPHETS.From the source where i found this embed:
This was recorded in the Siefert's golf course barn in Grand Blanc, MI, September, 1987. This was one of the last shows of the "hall party" era(1982-1987), before shows started being held at the Capitol Theatre, a couple months later. The False Prophets were from New York and were regulars and popular favorites of the Flint underground music scene throughout the 1980s.

KRAFTWERK-- German tv 1981,20 minutes

Fascinating German television broadcast from 1981, which I can only surmise was a tie-in with the release of that years COMPUTER WORLD album. A mix of interviews (for those that speak German),live sequences,and videos (including a clever but disturbing one for "Radioactivity").All the tracks here are in the original German, so if you're only familiar with the English versions, this will be a treat as the mixes are in many cases radically different.

SHE'S A PUNK ROCKER UK --documentary 2010

rather interesting ,if maybe a little heavyhanded doc on some of the early and curent women is the UK punk scene, including members of RUBELLA BALLET,CRASS,X RAY SPEX and more.

from the official synopsis:

"She's a Punk Rocker U.K." is a documentary by and about punk rock women. Punk women changed the public face of females. It was very universally empowering for women. The story of punk could almost be a women's liberation story. Documentary director and punk rocker Zillah Minx reveals the true punk rock history from the women who were there. This documentary tells the story directly from the punk women who created the punk scene in UK. These are the punk women on the streets of the UK. Before the Sex Pistols appeared on TV and revealed an underground punk world, to the public. These are the women punks who shocked the world. This is their story of being punk told in an oral history format. The film features a multitude of famous women punk rockers.
