Excellent documentary
10 May 2000 | by (Cambridge, MA) – See all my reviews



Features live performances by the Sex Pistols, the Rich Kids, the X-Ray Specs, Sham 69 and Generation X.

Hard to believe that this title is out of print. It's one of the best documentaries of the early Punk rock era.

It's got great interviews with some of the principal people of the time, such as the head of the GLC. And interviews with concert goers outside the Sex Pistols American gigs. And the famous Sid and Nancy bed interview. And a bunch of other stuff.
