In honor of heading to Chicago in the morning for Riot fest I thought I would throw out this gem from September of 1989 that is based on Punk Rock...You know, "Punk Rock".
In exactly two weeks from tonight I’m going to be tired and hopefully sunburnt from a long weekend at Riot Fest in Chicago, Illinois.
I am very happy to say I supported this movie during the Kickstarter phase and it came out perfect. Scott Crawford did a great job and you should follow him on his social media because it's full of fun punk rock memes, @saladdazed
When I was in high school I went to Peabody’s Downunder to see Rocket From The Crypt play. My friends and I didn’t have enough money to pay the covers so we wandered the The Flats of Cleveland, Ohio sparing change from people. We ended up by The Odeon where we walked right in because whoever was headlining was already on and no one seemed to care or notice. We pointed and laughed at some boy band that was playing got some change and headed back to our show.
I went looking for Suburbia and came home with this. Racism is gross and watching the skins being terrified is great.
Kurt Cobain spent the hours before the only concert Nirvana ever played in Cleveland laid out on the floor like a worn pair of house slippers.
A young Canadian by the name of Michael Fox had not found his true self with his J when this movie was released but I can assure you it is still worth your time. This is easily one of the best punk rock gang movies of the 80s.
Nirvana is an obvious force tht started in the 80s and destroyed everything in their path through the 90s. We know this. I have nothing to saw except they sure are fun to watch live.
A buddy who made me a tape that had the Minor Threat discography record on it, Dixie by Avail and a Minor Threat cover by The Suicide Machines. This tape would later go on to change my life...
-This was where I helped Iggy Pop crowd surf through the pit and watched Jimbo Wallace ride his bass during Rev. Horton Heat’s set.-
