There was a time when Portland was a little dingier, a little less hip, and a little less receptive to music than it is today. This locally-produced DVD doesn't have the highest of production values, but that's perfect for the punk/proto-indie/whatever type of music that it covers. Interspersing interviews with luminaries like the Coles (Dead Moon) and Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) and archival footage of bands playing long gone venues like the Earth Tavern (on 21st) and The Long Goodbye (where Jimmy Mack's is), this is essential viewing for fans of PDX pre-pop. It's a good mix of bands that are well-known in Portland (The Wipers, Poison Idea) and lesser known (Smegma, Neo Boys). There is also some hilarious footage of punks being interviewed on local TV. Also check out the book "Sonic Boom!" and the doc. about the late Satyricon.
