About Me

My photo

The purpose behind this space is to share obscure, out of print or otherwise commercially unavailable music, video and other media from a period in time in which music history revisionists have written out or downplayed the contributions of so many great bands, fanzine writers and others. And to entertain myself.  I don't own any of the material posted, so if  it belongs to you and you do not want it up here, get in touch with me and I will take it down. A lot of the material I will end up posting has been downloaded from other blogs or received through trades and may or may not be available elsewhere. I am extremely grateful for all the great stuff I have discovered through other people's blogs and their effort to share but please do not spit your dummy out for not receiving credit for your "ripping the vinyl" or whatever.I really cannot be bothered to keep track of where I found things. Keep in mind you probably do not own the rights for the music either and it is all about bringing the music to a wider audience (in my case likely the 3 or 4 people who bother to read this blog). I hope everyone discovers something new or something they have been searching for. All the best.

This is the second of two Toronto punk documentaries called Crash and Burn, this one directed by Peter Vronsky and filmed at New Yorker Theater and Crash'n'Burn Club in Toronto and CBGBs and Times Square Motor Inn in NYC. It focuses more on interviews with bands and organizers and audience footage but features live footage of Toronto's The Diodes, The Dishes and The Viletones as well as UK footage of 999.

Peter Vronsky has posted his presently commercially unavailable film on youtube in four parts.
