Full Movie Stream: CBGB

So here’s something to keep you entertained on a slow news day.  It’s the entire CBGB movie, which documents the history of the famous NYC venue and the punk scene it helped foster.

Watch it below.



5 Punk Acts That Helped Put CBGB On The Map

Whether you’re from New York or not if you’re into punk rock you’ve heard the name CBGB.  Back in the 1970s, when punk rock as a genre was still in its infancy, the famed NYC venue helped launch the careers of a number of punk rock acts, which inevitably put it on the map as one of the birthplaces of punk rock.  This month “CBGB”, the film documenting the club and the NYC punk scene, made its theatrical debut and in honor of the biopic we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the acts that rose to prominence on 315 Bowery and changed music in the process.

Check out our list of 5 punk acts that helped put CBGB on the map below.

DS Photo Gallery: The Damned at Punk Rock Bowling

After I finished photographing The Weirdos set, and before The Damned stepped up to play, I left the venue to grab some more reasonable libations.

In the street, not only did I find drunken LV debauchery, I also wandered into a live taxi-cab protest on the streets. It’s good to know collective bargaining still exists in the city of sin.

After thoroughly imbibing, I made my way back to the festival just in time to catch The Damned, check out pics here.



Sacred Cow Saturday: The Damned – “Damned Damned Damned”

Ed. Note: Starting now Sacred Cow Saturday will be a bi-weekly column. We love doing it, but these are some seriously time consuming pieces to write. So, in order to give our writers a little breather and hopefully introduce  more (and more, and more) original content, we made the decision to move away from our weekly model. See ‘ya in two weeks.

Punk rock has been around long enough  to hold within its musical boundaries a slew of albums considered both classic and essential. We here at Dying Scene love and appreciate these classic albums, but every once and a while we have the urge to challenge what the community has deemed sacred. Every Saturday, two Dying Scene writers will square off head-to-head and either attack or defend one of these so-called classics. Up for slaughter today is The Damned‘s “Damned Damned Damned.” Does the 1977 classic hold up today? You be the judge. Jo will be defending and Jason Stone will be attacking.

Let the battle begin!



Punk Rock Documentary: “A Riot of my Own” (Sex Pistols, The Clash, Damned)

Alright you bored punks.  It’s Saturday morning and many of you are nursing hangovers from last night’s show so here’s something to keep you purposefully glued to the relative comfort of indoors for at least 45 minutes.  It’s a punk rock documentary featuring The Sex Pistols, The Clash, and the Damned “who turned the rebellious tension of rock and roll back on itself — and blew it up.”

Enjoy.



The Damned announce 35th anniversary tour, making documentary

The storied career of seminal British punk band The Damned is coming to the big screen. When the band kicks off its 35th anniversary tour this month in Boston, they will be shadowed by New York-based filmmaker Wes Orshoski, who is directing/producing a feature-length documentary on the group.

The as-yet-untitled-film, to be a production of Orshoski’s Three Count Films, will combine new footage captured on and off the road with the current band members—including Damned founders David Vanian (vocals) and guitarist Captain Sensible—with archival clips and new interviews with many of the band’s famous friends and peers.

Captain Sensible quotes;
It seems like every other scumbag who was ever in a punk band got a film made about them, now it’s our turn, and at least we have some real stories to tell. Hopefully, this will cause a bit of a stink, but that’s what it was always supposed to do.

Orshoski is asking longtime fans of the band who may be in possession of vintage video and photos (as well as rare handbills, posters and/or magazine articles) to email him at: [email protected]

The Damned, featuring Vanian, Sensible, drummer Pinch, bassist Stu West and keyboardist Monty Oxy Moron, kicks off its 35th anniversary tour October 20 at Middle East in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The band is marking the anniversary by playing both its 1977 debut album, “Damned Damned Damned,” and 1980’s “The Black Album” in their entirety on the upcoming tour, which launches in the U.K. on Nov. 9 in Bristol (O2 Academy). The 35th Anniversary tour comes to Australia and Japan in 2012.
