Notes from the attic: The Decline of Western Civilization

We watched this punk rock classic a couple weeks ago in movie club. It's a doc that's been in my watch list since high school. Really took me back. Ha. Anyway, it's a look at the LA punk scene in the early 80s. You've got performances and interviews from X, Germs, Black Flag, Circle Jerks and more. Written and directed by Penelope Spheeris (Waynes World).

Decline has been out of print for some time, but if you look hard enough on the internets bootlegs can be found. There's been talk for a while about releasing the film on DVD. Maybe someday.
