Editorial Reviews

SpokAnarchy! is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the manic highs and desperate lows in the emergence of the punk rock scene in culturally barren 1980s of Spokane, Washington. This coming-of-age story becomes a coming-of-middle-age story as the scene's survivors take an unflinching look at their past, and how their lives were shaped by those years of music and mayhem. Aggressive and experimental music, art, and rebellion was the glue that brought them together, and 30 years on still resonates. Bands include Vampire Lezbos, Sweet Madness, Terror Couple, Cattle Prod, TFL, Social Bondage and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spok@narchy! March 19, 2013
Format:DVD
So you know where I'm coming from with this review, I am briefly in this film. I was born in Spokane, was going to college there in '82, was in a punk band , moved to Seattle in '88, moved back to Spokane in 2007, and in 2009 myself and a ton of other people organized a giant reunion for all the punk/wavo types. Over 350 people turned out for the three day event. That reunion was the spark for this film.

Standing back and taking a critical view of the film I can honestly say that "Spokanarchy" does a really great job of capturing the essence of the "underground/punk/new wave scene in Spokane '78-'89. Spokane could represent any mid-sized town that had an alternative scene. Sure it wasn't New York or London but we had the same energy. We played in bands, wrote zines, had crazy film night parties at the "art house" theater, insane house parties, put on shows and dances in rented out old auto body shops and grotto halls. We didn't do it to impress anyone from L.A. or Seattle, we did it to entertain each other. Does this film capture all the nuances and every single band, and chronicle each year? no.
It does capture the energy (creative & destructive), and the spirit that thrived during those times. Remember we didn't have the internet or mobile phones, we did have telephone poles and flyers, there were a few record stores that carried this sort of music which were the hubs. You'd meet people there, post flyers, get turned on to some new band ,exchange mix tapes, get an old music magazine from England and glean something from it,tweak it and make it yours. I don't think we were as pretentious as NY or L.A. because we knew no one was watching what was happening in Spokane. We did it for ourselves.

Not one band you (or anyone else) have ever heard of. Why even make a documentary? Ego. Spokane was not an important musical hub and you can see why.
