Editorial Reviews

When the Olympics came to China the world spotlight turned to a country synonymous with human rights abuse and by any measure a totalitarian police state. But under the surface is a growing movement of punks and misfits, the irony of which is not lost on the filmmakers.

4.0 out of 5 stars mu shu punk March 4, 2013
Format:DVD
short documentary - little over an hour - and perhaps a bit heavy on the self-congratulatoriness of the cbgb-franchising w/ club D-22 (although to be fair, not completely w/o merit), but overall a worthy xamination o' what i can only hope are the first few jagged stones thrown into the vast sea that is china

however the real tragedy is that these bands may be born, live a life o' constant struggle, and perish w/ hardly any notice from the outside world

working bands need to tour to survive - especially for those genres which are decidedly underground; and if, as the director/narrator says, 'they'll never be able to make it in china', then they will HAVE to go abroad.......yet if the gov keeps denying their visas, this will most likely suffocate these bands - which admittedly the chinese government probably has no problem w/, particularly as punk bands tend to have a political bent. on the other hand this may make them even more determined and relevant as their music & message spread out to the rurals o' china's countryside. not unlike how a raging inferno is ignited by a simple spark

one curious & obvious omission though, none o' the bands appearing in this doc are singing about tibet. odd (no doubt a guaranteed way to get one incarcerated & perhaps perished), that or it was a deiberate editing choice to not bring overt unwanted attention onto the band(s) who WERE, but in english

now, let's see some docs about punk bands in the war-torn middle-east !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Punk Doc June 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a very interesting analysis into the political and social issues being a catalyst to music and culture revolution. There are a few bands to keep an ear on profiled in this piece. Great watch for anyone that loves music, punk, politics or revolution

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, cool music October 20, 2013

Wish they had shown full performances of the bands, maybe one full song per band. But the stories are interesting especially if you know and like Asian punk like I do.
