Reviews

In 1976 a cultural melt down was occurring. From this emerged a new scene: Punk Rock. Controversial, colourful and chaotic, it was a slap in the face of the establishment and a cultural movement that is still ingrained in the public consciousness. This film identifies the roots of this movement that is still ingrained in the public consciousness. This film identifies the roots of this tradition from America to the U.K. and beyond showing that Punk was not just a musical movement but an attitude of mind that is not, in any way static. Featuring interviews with Henry Rolins (Black Flag), Brendan Mullen (The Masque club owner), Chryssie Hynde (The Pretenders), and more. And includes footage from revolutionary Punk bands New York Dolls, MC5, The Stooges, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Ramones and much more.

I was too young to appreciate punk in 1976/77, but this DVD certainly gave me a good flavour of the times. The film is packed with many revealing interviews from the bands involved and a lot of rare gig footage. I particularly enjoyed the articulate comments from Poly Styrene, Jello Biafra, Pete Shelley and Henry Rollins.

The extras are varied and impressive. It takes a look at early fanzines, female punks, UK vs US and much more.

Punk: Attitude is a documentary directed by Don Letts. An important figure in the punk explosion in England circa 1976, Letts has always held the subject of punk rock close to his heart. Here he explores the "punk" revolution, its roots and its impact on modern rock music. The cast features the likes of David Johansen, Thurston Moore, Tommy Ramone, Chrissie Hynde, Henry Rollins, Captain Sensible, Jim Jarmusch, Mick Jones, Jello Biafra, Howard Devoto and Glen Matlock. To name but a few!

As the title suggests, this is about the attitude that is essential to the make up of the punk rock genre. This is not a film that is telling you lies about its time-lines or an attempt to ensure the viewers know how important punk was in the pantheon of music. It's refreshingly honest, in fact what is the most striking thing about Letts' movie is that this is no stroll down a rose tinted glassy memory lane. For sure there's warmth in recollections from many of the big shakers, while some of the old footage clips of the bands are sure to stir strong emotions in fans, but nobody is trying to hide the genre limitations of punk. Letts threads it nicely as a triple bill of birth, death and revival. Starting out with an attitude nod of acknowledgement to Jerry Lee Lewis and other more daring 50s & 60s acts, the film starts gaining its worth with some well spent time in the company of The New York Dolls, Velvet Undeground, MC5 and of course Iggy Pop & his Stooges. The influence of such luminaries of course comes as no surprise to any old punker such as I, but for new parties interested in punk this serves as an essential piece of film.

Into the mid 70s where of course things got serious and both America and England witnessed what in all essence was "thee" punk rock explosion.

One of the best documentaries I have ever seen on the subject. Henry Rollins' input is worth its weight in gold! Nice to see an intelligent & thoughtful view.

If you're just starting to discover the marvellous world of 'real' punk this is a great DVD to watch. It touches on most of the major events and bands in the history of punk from the 50's to present and features some great archive footage of the various bands (Velvet Underground, Dictators, Clash, Pistols, Ramones, Damned, X-Ray Spex etc) as well as some great interviews. The only real downside with it is as there are so many bands to cover it only really skims the surface but it nevertheless still a highly entertaining and interesting documentury. Well worth buying if you're interested in learning about punk or if you're a fan of any of the bands mentioned on it.

This is a good package, with two discs, plenty of extras, and even a couple of facsimiles of punk magazines. Great to see footage of the bands, so much energy and explosive music. The interviews don't really add much to the story, but it is fascinating to see the key people speaking about what punk was and meant to them.

Fascinating film documenting not only the influencial bands of the punk era but tracing their roots + making connections with the bands who came afterwards
