Alive and Kicking: the Attitude…

I Skate, Therefore I Am -Home- Yes! isTia skateboard blog talks about skateboarders, skaters, vert, ramp, skateparks, pool, backyard pools, kidney pool, pink motel, supreme skateboard, copying, skateboarding photography, skate rock, concrete disciples, daily skate news, Vans, Venice skatepark, skate spots  and skateboard news. There are plenty of other skate websites that publish skateboard news faster than me, and better than me (Transworld, The Berrics, Thrasher, Slap magazine, skatedaily, crailtap, juice magazine, skate and annoy,…), so I won’t just give the skate news, I’ll also tell you what I think about it even if I’m wrong. Then you can conform and think like me too and impress your friends with your profound knowledge of the skateboarding industry. LOL
In the mid-1970s, a revolution started on the streets of London and later on, New York. Almost overnight, punk displaced pop and rock music as the new symbol of the no future generation and shattered the status quo with provocative design, music and lyrics. Long after punk was considered dead; it continued to impact the future generations and the culture of skateboarding for decades. Punk and the skate and destroy attitude of the skateboarding scene of the late 70’s and 80’s mingled with perfection. Punk is still alive and kicking and on January 11, 2010, Shout! Factory will release the long out-of-print documentary PUNK: Attitude.

Directed by Don Letts, the film and its extensive bonus features, chronicle the origin of punk music and its socio-cultural and musical impact through interviews with key figures such as Henry Rollins, Thurston Moore, Jello Biafra, Chrissie Hynde and more. A must-have for fans of punk music, documentary aficionados and DVD collectors, the two-disc set of PUNK: Attitude is priced for everyone to own at $19.93.

With a cast of historic and modern figures in popular culture, the documentary ventures beyond the hype and explores the way punk music redefined popular music and fashion while legitimizing an independent, do-it-yourself attitude that inspired an entire generation of musicians, filmmakers, poets, photographers, fashion designers and graphic artists.
“With hindsight we are able to recognize it as part of an ongoing movement of counterculture,” says filmmaker Don Letts adding, “It is in that spirit that I made this film, not as a nostalgic look back, but rather a way to move forward. After all, if it happened before, it can happen again.”

PUNK: Attitude was officially released April 25, 2005 at the Tribeca Film Festival and later aired to critical acclaim on IFC. The DVD-set has long been out of print.
