Item Details

This documentary film, clocking in at over 3 hours, traces the entire history of New York's punk movement; the VU years, the Warhol influence, the Dolls reign, and the handover of power to the bands who, despite their differences in sound, shared the sensibilities and attitude introduced to the city's musical landscape by Warhol and the Velvets a decade before. These were the groups and musicians who claimed the lower east die of the city as their playground and the former bluegrass club CBGBs as their HQ. With the aid of performance footage, rare archive, exclusive interviews and some of the most exciting music ever recorded, this programme offers a visual experience of these events second only to having lived through them. Features brand new interviews with Richard Hall & Richard Lloyd from Television, Suicide's Alan Vega, Gary Valentine from Blondie and Elda Gentile from Debbie Harry's previous band The Stilletos, The Voidoids' Ivan Julian, ex-Ramones manager Danny fields, Warhol acolytes Jayne County and Leee Black Childers, scene photographer Roberta Bayley, writers Robert Christgau and Victor Bockris - both of whom witnessed events as they unfolded - plus Simon Reynolds and Tony Fletcher representing the British view, Patti Smith biographer Mark Paytress, and the man who recorded the New York sound in the 1970s, Craig Leon - producer of debut albums by The Ramones, Blondie and Suicide.
