Editorial Reviews

Banned in London, busted in Milwaukee, the legendary Wendy O. Williams and the Plasmatics caused a seismic cultural shock still felt today. They pioneered the mohawk, the fusing of punk and metal and did shows including the blowing up of cars yet to be

Not up to Behind the Music standards ( and that's a pretty low bar).

In my opinion, this DVD should have been filled with complete performances of the era that most Plasmatics fans would care about.

Whoever did the transfer for WENDY O WILLIAMS AND THE PLASMATICS: THE DVD, really needs seeing glasses.

The Plasmatics have been my favorite band since 1981, but when I saw this hideous DVD I felt very let down. Rod Swenson should be ashamed of himself for allowing this DVD to see the light of day. It is not a documentary at all. It is nothing but bits and pieces of The Plasmatics and Wendy over a span of 10 years; with half truths, fabrications, and the elimination of most of the other band members.

They knowingly and quite obviously cut Richie Stotts out of the videos. In "The Damned" video, they also added some cheesy effect to make the desert scene look like a moon drenched evening...UGH! It was also implied that Richie's guitar playing was perhaps "not up to snuff" which I found riotous. He and Wes Beech are both great guitar players, and were tremendous assets to the band.

As fans, we are not always privy to the "falling outs" between producers/managers and band members, but I remember reading somewhere that there was no love lost between Swenson and Richie. That must explain Richie's nonexistence on the DVD. It's very sad when disagreements and money issues have to estrange the fans. It is 25 years later; Plasmatics fans deserve a FULL history when making a documentary. Who knows, maybe Richie didn't want to participate or authorize them to do so. We may never know, but it is sad nonetheless. I would love to have seen interviews with Chosei, Chris, Stu, & Jean, reflecting on that charisma that we enjoyed as fans.

The one positive thing I can say about this DVD is that seeing the concert footage after 25 years was wonderful, and brought back many great memories. However, the DVD looks as if it was just strewn together without care and consideration for neither the fans nor the band members that were omitted from the project.

This dvd is a lot of fun.I could watch her over and over an not get tired of it.The only lousy part of this is the lady commenting about it.She doesn't need to go on and on and it would be more fun without her talk.

A couple years ago I heard the plasmatics and I fell in love with Wendy and her really cool style.I got this dvd which I just treasure because Wendy is so great and she looks terific in every scene.
I highly recomend this dvd and it's guarenteed to get you exited.And maybe have a major crush on her if she was still here.
I'd buy it again any day

Being an old Punk Rock fan, after having purchased the "Ramones End of the Century" documentary and being so impressed, I couldn't wait to get "10 years of Revolutionary Rock and Roll from the Plasmatics" to add to my DVD collection. To this day, I believe that "New Hope for the Wretched" is the CLASSIC recording that was years ahead of its time!

The good news is that this DVD was given to me as a gift and being a Plasmatics fan since 1980, having caught them live in 1982, and still enjoying them to this day, I was so looking forward to this documentary, especially since all the cool video clips such as their performance of "Butcher Baby" on FRIDAYS, their performance of "Squirm", "Tight Black Pants", etc at the pier in New York, (which to me were classic performances beyond belief) were removed from youtube.

This documentary was nothing like I expected.

For a start, never have I heard such indifference in a narrator and especially talking so fast that a few rewinds were a must to catch everything that was said.

I enjoyed the interview they did with Wes Beech as he was definitely a key player. But what about Richie Stotts, Stu Deutsch, Jean Beauvoir
or perhaps even Chosei Funahara if that were possible?

What was disturbing was no mention of Richie.

To begin with, I have to rate this DVD with an I for INCOMPLETE as it far from finished. After watching I was unsatisfied and in utter disbelief. The other reviews here are not off the mark except for the one 5 star rating that seems as if it was probably written by someone with a financial interest in the sale of this excuse of a Rockumentary. The filthy hypocrits are those that had anything to do with piece of crap. The live footage is worth having but man I hate having to support whomever slapped this together just to get my hands on it.

An entertained albeit poorly produced ¨rockumentary ¨on this legendary american punk/metal band; this is one of those products good enough as to make it something you just HAVE to have if you're a fan of the band, but leaves you with a sensation of incompleteness. Why ? Apparently the producers of the dvd and/or band had some sort of disagreement with guitarrist Richie Stotts and left him out of the documentary, not an interview or reference to him, and what is worst, the clips have been edited so as not to show the man ( except on some of the live clips), mutilating their artistic integrity. These people should have left these quarrels aside for 2 main reasons :

1- They should have foreseen this fact would reflect on the sales.
2- They should have bitten the bullet an respected the fans.

This said; the documentary is mainly stills and newspapers/magazines clippings,making off of videoclips, interwiews and some good footage of the band that's linked to the clips section via easter eggs-like buttons and a somewhat indifferent female narrator in off. The editing is jerky but effective, compressing as much info as possible in a generous 120'; the sound is loud, crisp and clear and the picture is excellent 4:3. There's a 1 hour full clips section comprising scarce live footage from Bond's Casino and Perkins Palace in `81, with excellent sound (no complete shows)some videoclips (though only a few seconds of Pier 17, which was the biggest letdown to me )some bootleg, low fi but interesting live footage of the later WOW lineup and several songs from the Bump ^N Grind dvd.
Not a must buy and you can always rent it but this particular fan thinks this dvd is good enough till some complete live performances are released.NOT BAD AT ALL !!!
