20 Years of Punk Rock West Coast Style

  • 3.3
RAGE depicts the hope, anger and aggression of the early west coast punk rock scene. Punk was in its infancy in the late 1970’s. It was shapeless, gritty, honest and dishonest. It could be morphed into anything the imagination could conceive. The film relates how the punk scene originated through the eyes of Jack Grisham (TSOL), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Keith Morris (Circle Jerks), Gitane Demone (Christian Death), Duane Peters (US Bombs), and Don Bolles (The Germs).

Time has not been kind to the legacy of LA punk circa 1977-1981. Most of these bands now sound hopelessly dated and sadly irrelevant;

that being said, despite it's at-the-time vitally necessary and understandable rebelliousness against the corporate mainstream and the languidly sexual clichés of disco, it's disturbing, if not ironic, that the sweeter, more musically adept craftsmanship of the "classic" rock past creates more melancholy in the listener of the present day (in terms of what has been lost in the general cultural malaise of rank Bieber/Beyonce musical mediocrity) than in the often desperate flailing of a good-hearted but tragically limited primal scream for recognition.
