History Lesson Part 1: Punk Rock In Los Angeles In 1984 (DVD)

Classic raw punk footage from 1984 Los Angeles, plus interviews.

In 1984, a teenage Dave Travis decided to capture punk rock in Los Angeles on video tape, a fascination and hobby that he would continue until 1997, logging in hundreds of hours of Los Angeles area shows and interviews. In A History Lesson Part 1, Travis presents live footage filmed in the spring of 1984 featuring the Meat Puppets, Minutemen, Twisted Roots and Redd Kross interspersed with interviews of members from each group which examines and puts a perspective on the early years of 'psychedelic' punk rock in Los Angeles and Phoenix, AZ.

Each song by each group is presented from start to finish. Includes rare interviews with Mike Watt (Minutemen), Jeff and Steve McDonald (Redd Kross), Cris and Curt Kirkwood (Meat Puppets), Paul Roessler (Screamers, Twisted Roots, DC3) and Hellin (Killer) Roessler.
