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.

None of the bands in this documentary can hold a candle to any of the bands from the 80s NYHC scene. The music is so awful that it made me sad that the younger generation would be led to believe that this garbage is representative of the golden years of hardcore from NYC.

I could excuse the omission of the 80s bands if the film was well made and included an interesting cast of characters that had more to say than, "I'm an outcast of society; hear me roar!" Unfortunately, the result is an art student quality film of live clips from (mostly) CBGBs and interviews with band members and fans who are not at all compelling or articulate.

Watching this film made me wish that CBGBs had closed its doors in 1992. Don't waste your time or money.

Growing up in NYC in '95 -ish...this is a must own...wish they would've gotten some more bands in there....especially Sick Of It All, but if you get the DVD, Lou can explain that.

Definitely worth it

Lame bands like the ones featured on this DVD are responsible for the death of the true NYHC scene. These bands (VOD being the exception)are glorified metal bands. 25 ta life? please....horrible singer, terrible lyrics, awful musicianship. District 9? Who has even heard of these clowns? What a bunch of morons. Real NYHC = Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, Murphy's Law, Cro-Mags, Warzone, Youth of Today, Token Entry, Sick of It All.

Douglas Mallach a hardcore and ska musician out of Houston told me to catch this movie. He is a great musician, and I thought if Douglas Mallach thinks highly of it, it's worth trying out. He was right. It's a great movie. If your a musician or just an avid enthusiast, it's worth seeing.
