Another Punk Documentary

Do you need another?  Of course you do.  According to the comments, this is the final installment of  a multi-episode BBC documentary made in the 90’s.  Earlier episodes dealt with the Stooges, Velvets, et al.  Anyone seen the others or know if they’re available somewhere?  Makerbot?

Last ten minutes have good footage of Sex Pistols US tour.

The reggae segment seems a bit long considering the number of punk bands omitted.  And some of the omissions are glaring.  Talking Heads, but no Johnny Thunders?  That’s just weird, as L.A.M.F.  is one of the very best records to come out of the NYC scene, and more punk than TH.  But this is still worth watching.


If you’re about to stock up the ol’ cabinet for the holidays, don’t forget that more expensive often doesn’t equal better.  Some of the $25-$60 range is so good that you never need to spend more.  If you aren’t interested in most of the video, the most entertaining part is about Blanton’s at 18:15.
