TEST VIDEO TO CHECK SIZING
WHAT THIS SITE IS
I am going to the spots of early punk rock clubs in Los Angeles and see what is still standing.
Growing up far away from where punk rock started, I came to know it through movies - D.O.A., SUBURBIA, THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION and of course REPO MAN. Putting years on the films wouldn’t help, as I discovered them on recorded VHS tapes from friends years after they were made. To me they were exactly what I needed, right when I watched for the first time.
From there I found (occasionally shoplifted) the albums and cassettes, the concerts and skate videos on VHS, and most importantly, the flyers for shows. Seeing the actual bands was impossible, it was already 1984 and most were long gone. When I finally moved to Los Angeles in 2001, I drove around to the addresses on the amazing handmade 70’s flyers looking for my personal historical monuments. I’ve found a lot of other friends did this too.
I’m making a video for each club and seeing what punk looks like now.
WHAT THIS SITE IS NOT
You won’t find a be-all, end-all documentary on bands or clubs with sit down interviews and old photos and “what happened” stories. The internet already has incredible resources showing the story of punk and how important I think it was and still is to the world. I am making portraits of the foundations and what time has done to them. There might even be some punk left, weeds pushing up through the concrete.
