Storyline

"Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)" examines the early DIY punk scene in the Nation's Capital. It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Marginal Man, Fugazi, and others released their own records and booked their own shows-without major record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny. Contextually, it was a cultural watershed that predated the alternative music explosion of the 1990s (and the industry's subsequent implosion). Thirty years later, DC's original DIY punk spirit serves as a reminder of the hopefulness of youth, the power of community and the strength of conviction. Written by Anonymous

Old folks reminiscing
15 May 2020 | by EmilioLargoSee all my reviews

Taking a trip down memory lane 30+ years later yap, yap, yapping just isnt the same as raw footage and interviews and this is why you get the spirit of a scene from Decline of Western Civilization while Salad Days is people trying to remember their youth, many with rose colored glasses, and telling you what they can remember
