Raw Rebellion Raw Power Pure PunkBy a customer from wakefield , 17 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Intresting documentary style anology of Punk in the early days of Punk before commercialisation and selling out.This is filmed by a German who went to London to see what this concept of music and rebellion(punk)was all about.It sets the scence about how and why Punk took the nation by storm.There is some excellent footage of bands that many people will not have seen before and some intresting interviews.I would have preferred more music but this apart this film gives a real insight into life and Punk in London in1977/8.

Difficult to watch.By a customer from London , 03 Mar 2011Poor sound. Second-rate bands. Little information.
'Punk In London'By a customer from Coventry , 15 Feb 2009Filmed in 1978 as punk was becoming integrated into mainstream commercial fashion and therefore was on its self destructive last legs. This is a brilliant pre Spinal Tap rockumentary filmed, bizzarley by a German crew. The small bits of German narrative give a slightly avant garde feel but dont spoil the film. Lots of gig footage including audience pogoin There are interviews with big name bands and never made its, roadcrew and joe public. This is great because it is not a talking heads but a then and there.
Cynics Guide To PunkBy Colvin (11 reviews) from Edinburgh , 22 Jun 2008The historical hindsight highlight for me was the footage of two music journalists shot in the back of a taxi on a journey through the streets of London discussing and dissecting the nascent Punk scene to a T. The Cynics Guide To Punk that tells it like it is/was.
