Product Description

Originally released as a now-legendary underground VHS tape in 1999, N.Y.H.C. will come to DVD for the first-time as a deluxe 2-Disc Set.

This incarnation features interviews with Jimmy Gestapo (Murphy's Law), John Joseph (Cro-Mags), Lou Koller (Sick of It All), Lord Ezec (Crown of Thornz, Danny Diablo), Roger Miret (Agnostic Front), Rick ta Life (25 ta Life), Toby Morse (H2O), Vic DiCara & Rasaraja das (108), Freddy Madball (Madball), Tim Williams & Mike Kennedy (VOD, Bloodsimple), District 9, No Redeeming Social Value, and more.

The brand-new "Disc 2" includes "Where Are They Now?" interviews shot ten years after the original documentary, flashbacks of key venues, and previously unreleased live performances of iconic songs by VOD, 108, Madball, 25 ta Life, Crown of Thornz, and more.

N.Y.H.C. is the first feature-length documentary to explore the New York Harcore music scene. Drawings its roots from punk rock, hardcore evolved into a dedicated, self-contained movement, unconcerned with success in the mainstream. The documentary follows seven bands in the summer of 1995, ranging from Bronx inner-city youth to Long Island suburbanites to Hare Krishna devotees. N.Y.H.C. is a surprisingly in-depth and non-exploitive look into a vital and often neglected music community.

Let me start by writing that I was there, at CBGB, nearly every Sunday, from 1984 to 1988, until I relocated. And even then, over those 4 years, when the scene was at its peak, I felt like I missed out on so much. So how does this documentary get to be titled NYHC when it focuses almost exclusively on the nineties? I don't get it. I expected it to cover the development of hardcore in New York, starting with the arrival of the Bad Brains, and moving on from there. But no.

No HR interview.
No Vinnie Stigma.
No Harley Flanagan.
No Todd Youth.
No War Zone, Token Entry, Youth of Today, Bold, Underdog, Reagan Youth, Krakdown, Sick Of It All, Rest In Pieces, etc. etc. etc.
NO HILLY KRISTAL (RIP) interview!!!!! This was filmed before he passed away, and they didn't even take the time to meet with the man who had enough foresight to give us hardcore matinees. Instead, the directors went to Northport, Long Island.

Not even any references to the Rock Hotel, or Chris Williamson.

These people, and many more, were the heart and soul of the NYHC, and they are entirely omitted from this documentary.

Save your money. Buy American Hardcore instead. It's much more thorough, with great interviews with hardcore veterans from around the country.

It got 4 stars. Theres heaps here. And the bonus material is gold. Roger miret, Freddy madball, john joseph (agnostic front, cro-mags). must have for hardcore bretheren

I have been waiting for the DVD release of NYHC Documentary for the last decade, and I am completely pleased with the final outcome. I bought the VHS version back in 1998 at Generation Records in NYC, and have since then watched it endlessly. As the technology has changed along the 21th century, the DVD format was well called for.

If you have the VHS version, there should be no explanations for it. The highlights include the hilarious District 9 interview, Madball playing "Crucified" with Roger Miret, and the fight during Crown of Thornz.
In addition to the VHS contents, there are a great deal of the addition in the live footage of Corny Island High in 1995 (Madball - 4 songs; Crown of Thornz - 3 songs; VOD - 2 songs; 25 ta Life - 3 songs, and so on), which is very good, because I thought the VHS version had too much interviews. There are also the deleted scenes, mostly interviews.

The disc 2 is worth checking out, since there are all new footages.
There are new interviews with Agnostic Front, Madball, Sick Of It All, H20, and VOD. There are also very short footages (only 4 mins) for the Last Rites of CBGB in 2006. I wish they had added more live performances for this CBGB show. Also, they should have included the interviews and performances from other crucial NYHC bands that had also contributed a great deal to the scene around the year 1995, such bands as Warzone, Killing Time, Breakdown, Sub Zero, and H2O.

Overall, this documentary has been a true dedication to the revival of New York Hard Core, and should be an instant addition to your wishlist!

This is a totally amazing NYHC doc to own. For someone who grew up as a SXE kid going to shows and being part of the scene, this movie has been like a flash back to those I have met, those who have inspired me, and those that i just flat out have been scared of. NYHC is well worth every second and a must own for any DMS/NYHC fan.
