Earlier today, the world lost its greatest curmudgeon at the age of 60. Mark E. Smith of The Fall has left the building but his legacy of cantankerous one-liners, general hatred of all that is modern and certainly insipid media wankers, his incomparable ability to “do his own thing” while giving zero fucks about what anyone else had to say, and of course, his very distinct take on how the most mundane moments in life also tend to be the most bizarre will live on in his expansive catalog of equally strange yet succinctly genius career. Smith was a prolific warrior in Punk Rock, who would not slow down or step back for any reason. Hell, he still got up on stage in a wheelchair in his last few months with every bit of piss and vinegar as he wasn’t going down without a fight.
We do love our punk documentaries here at AZ KAOS, and a new year means we’re going to try something a little new. Instead of your regularly scheduled Trailer Park in which we watch trailers for upcoming docs, we’re going to give you the gift of watching a few full length ones that the filmmakers or bands have graciously made available for free. Hope you’ve got some time to kill on these killer flicks about punk rockers and be sure to show your support and thanks for keeping us entertained.
This is our last round of music videos from the locals here in Arizona for 2017. Absolutely the last until next year and it’s quite a mix that your friendly desert dwellers have concocted for the ears of all who will partake. We have some spooky songs, some loud songs, some pseudo-devil magic, and a whole lot of just plain good times. So, grab a buddy and check out the most recent A/V treats, won’t you?
We’re back again with a round of new and upcoming punk documentaries. Obviously, most won’t be easy to find, but there are some really great ones that will be ready for your eyeballs soon enough.
Join us. Learn some stuff. Hear some great stories.
A look at the subversive movement that started during the AIDS epidemic of the 1980’s and continues strong today. Covering zines, films, bands, art, hi-jinks, and more from the likes of Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis P-Orridge, John Waters, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Peaches, and many others you might just have heard of. Get your fill of rad-queer, riot grrrl, diy punk, camp, and awesome right here! This one is making the film circuit and will hopefully be out for the rest of us soon.
We’re back with another round of new music videos from punk/ ska/ whatever bands not local to AZ and boy, oh boy, are there some good ones this month!
So grab a beverage, strap yourself in, and find some new music to impress the kids with. It will only hurt for a moment.
