    Saw The Decline of Western Civilization last night.   Never seen it before.  Pretty much about the LA punk scene in '79-'80.  Kinda funny to see a young Keith Morris and Pat Smear.  Wasn't too familiar with a few of the bands but knew most of them through reputation (Germs, Circle Jerks, X, Black Flag, Fear)

    Part 2 is even better!!!!!!
    so i've heard.  Saw this one in the theaters last night (local indie theater played it in honor of record store day).  Someone said part 2 was on tv last night.  I'll try and watch it when i get the opportunity.  Also heard there's a part 3 also?

    Six years ago this theat started, but hey I have just read it. I really ejoyed last Days
    Althought it might nog really be a documentary, It does seem a very well informed scripted.
    I love the part where the lead actor who seems to reprisent Kurt goes into the woods and howls in the night next to the stream.
    It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

    This is great.... The four part doc (Punk) on Epix was excellent. Around the 15:00 mark moving on Johnny and Marky get a little testy with each other... Good stuff.

    LOL, I saw that one.  Poor Henry, I think he was really embarrassed for Mr. Lydon's antics.

    I really enjoyed it.  I love toward the ending where he mentions, the only part that wasn’t successful were the profits.  It kind of reminds me of Pearl Jam trying to avoid Ticketmaster venues in the mid-90s.

    Netflix has a nice little doc on Sam Cooke 
  • Loved Running Down A Dream and Back And Forth. Back And Forth came out roughly the same time as PJ20 and I thought it kicked PJ20's arse. PJ20 started off so good and then turned into a Crowe fanboy pic for me whereas the Foos weren't afraid to give the former members a say and seemed a more honest warts and all doco (not that we need to see every wart obviously).

    History Of The Eagles was great too. Probably for the same reasons. Interesting and ironic that given the control Henley and Frey had over the band that Frey was definitely cast in a negative light.

    For a band from my home city Shihad's Beautiful Machine was really good too. Very revealing about a band that had possibly a massive future taken away by 9/11 and its ramifications.

    Totally agree with you about Back And Forth. I appreciate how honest and open it was. They could've easily left a lot of stuff out and declined to talk about it for the film. Gotta give them credit for that. I felt PJ20 had too much old footage and should've had more current interviews. They should've given the former members more credit than what they did too.

    Just watched this one the other day. Really good. Johnny Cash was the coolest dude to ever live. So much more respect for him after this and I loved him before. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    Did anybody mention "American Hardcore"?  The book was great and the documentary was like part 2. which was good.  No repeating parts.

    If you know of any of the bands in there mentioned then it is a must see.

    It’s really good. Haven’t watched it in a few years. I have the DVD packed away somewhere.

    Signed up for Amazon Prime the other day and have so far watched the L7 doc Pretend We're Dead and Salad Days (Washington DC 1980-1990 scene). Both were great. On my Prime watchlist is Gimme Danger (Stooges) and also ones about The Replacements and the LA thrash metal scene (can't remember name). Some good ones on Prime.

    You're welcome. I remember watching this when it came out. It is really good. Anton is crazy and self destructive and it is sad to see someone with that much talent just sabotage their career but the art that came out of all of that is undeniably great in that it reflects his mental state and serves as a reflection of that particular scene and moment in time. The blend of psych, folk, indie rock was cool. Also fun to see a young Peter Hayes of BRMC fame paying his dues with the band. I love the dynamics of part comrodery part loathing that each band had towards each other. They were essentially two sides of the same coin and needed each other to be better but simultaneously envied the other band for their unique abilities.
