THE BLANK GENERATION 1976
U.S. film. Official DIY 16mm B&W film shot by insider Ivan Kral (1970's guitarist for Patti Smith Group, Blondie, and Iggy Pop) originally for his personal home movies. This is the genuine 1976 NYC punk film—not to be confused with other films of the same title. The raw footage captures the birth of influential punk music legends in their lowly beginnings.

Historic footage includes early Talking Heads, Ramones, Patti Smith Group, Blondie, Television, New York Dolls, the Heartbreakers, the Shirts, Wayne County, the Marbles, the Miamis, Harry Toledo, and the Tuff Darts (w/Robert Gordon). Venues include CBGBs, Max's Kansas City, the Bottom Line, Debbie Harry's apartment and more.

Known as the only visual testament of the birth of New York punk, this grainy clip compilation was shot between 1974-1975. There was no audio recorded, so music was added from the bands' own cassettes and demo recordings. Though lo-fi quality, this stands as the only document that genuinely shows the birth of punk.

Plus this bonus selection...

HEY, IS DEE DEE HOME? 1992
U.S. film. The life and times of Ramones bassist Dee Dee Ramone (1952-2002). Dee Dee's life is a fascinating character study of a punk rock legend who never grew up. Dee Dee was interviewed for the Johnny Thunders film "Born to Lose" so consequently some of the stories concern Johnny Thunders. But that's okay.

The interviews took place mostly in 1992. Stories deal with his drug buddies Johnny Thunders, Jerry Nolan, Richard Hell, etc. The writing of the song "Chinese Rocks" and why Johnny Ramone didn't want it as a Ramones song. Getting' beat up by Debbie Harry, selling Joey Ramone's TV for dope, tattoos, heroin, cats, NYC cops, rehab, recording with Stiv Bators in Paris in 1988 and more. All fascinating (but kind of a bummer). Dee Dee says he's a "survivor" — but died of a heroin overdose in 2002.
