This looks good.
Very good indeed.
From Lemmy filmmaker Wes Orshoski comes the story of the long-ignored pioneers of punk: The Damned, the first punks on wax and the first to cross the Atlantic. This authorized film includes appearances from Chrissie Hynde, Mick Jones (The Clash), Lemmy and members of Pink Floyd, Black Flag, GNR, the Sex Pistols, Blondie, Buzzcocks, and more. Shot around the globe over three years, the film charts the band’s complex history and infighting, as it celebrated its 35th anniversary and found its estranged former members striking out on their own anniversary tour, while still others battle cancer.
Below, watch the trailer for the film. It features Mick Jones (the Clash), Keith Morris (OFF!/Black Flag/Circle Jerks), Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead), Fred Armisen, Chrissie Hynde (the Pretenders), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses), Steve Diggle (the Buzzcocks), and others. Watch it below.
The film also features interviews with Ian MacKaye (Fugazi/Minor Threat), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Chris Stein and Clem Burke (Blondie), Buzz Osborne (the Melvins), and more.
