The Punk Rock Movie

47

The Punk Rock Movie was an accumulated footage from super 8 camera, shot by Don Letts between 1977 and 1979, when he was a disc jockey during the early days of the UK punk rock movement at the Roxy club.

The film not only captures the characteristics archive live footage of the bands The Clash, the Sex Pistols, Wayne County and the Electric Chairs, Generation X, Slaughter and the Dogs, The Slits, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Eater, Subway Sect, X-Ray Spex, Alternative TV and The Heartbreakers, but it also expresses the vibrancy and energy of that period.

Except the Sex Pistols, which was filmed at the Screen On The Green Cinema in London, all the live footage of the film was shot at the Roxy club.
