Editorial Reviews

Originally seen on German television in 1998, this hour-long documentary delves deep into the New York punk scene with interviews of Lenny Kaye, Patti Smith, Tom Verlaine, Richard Hell and Jim Jarmusch. Cult classic material, especially for fans of the time and place!

5.0 out of 5 stars History of Rock 401: NY City and the CBGB Scene December 2, 2013
By McQ
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Amazingly detailed and insightful documentary of the 70s NY CBGB counterculture music scene from its inception through to its broader influence on contemporary culture. The interviews and footage are priceless relics of the era. For anyone wanting to relive or better understand the history, this documentary is a must-see.

While the version of this film I watched on Amazon Prime Instant Video confused me (it appeared to be >2 hrs. long, but after watching it once and the hour mark or so being hit I realized it was just repeating itself - maybe w/o German subtitles? Don't know), overall I really liked this film. "The House of the Rising Punk" features great interviews with both the guys and dolls who were a part of the NYC punk scene, CBGB, etc. There's lots of great performance footage, Jim Jarmuch film excerpts of Blondie's Debbie Harry singing in German and the list of unusual tidbits goes on. I'd watch it again. Hell, I'd even buy it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great documtary October 10, 2013
By Ross
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It is a good intro to the beginning of punk. It parallels with the book "Please Kill Me" which expands on this documentary. I highly suggest reading that book as well.Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk
