I got home last night convinced I was going to call it an early(ish) night. I flipped through the channels and ended up on IFC, which was playing Don Letts’ 2005 documentary Punk: Attitude (brought up earlier in a post on best music documentaries). I caught the punk retrospective right as it was getting to the Ramones, and ended up staying up to watch the whole thing as it traversed punk’s path to the present, sucked in with all of the interviews and footage. I’m sure it’ll be showing on the IFC a few more times, but it’s also on DVD already, and I’d highly recommend it. Be warned that you’ll finish it with a long list of bands to check out (at least I did).
Here are two clips:
