There is a new documentary about punk in the making, ‘Salad Days: The HarDCore Punk Revolution’, and it is supposed to be ‘the most comprehensive, honest and insightful look at the [Washington] DC punk scene from the early 1980s to the decade’s end’.


According to its Facebook page, ‘the film will include exclusive archival photographs, concert footage and interviews with dozens of bands, artists, label owners, zine publishers and others who helped mold and nurture DC’s underground community during this inspired decade of music.’


Director Scott Crawford , who was already a fanzine publisher at 12, witnessed the rise of many hardcore bands in Washington D.C. in the 80s, and interviewed them 30 years later. Named after Minor Threat’s last EP, the documentary will feature John Stabb, Ian Mackaye, Henry Rollins, Dave Grohl, Alec Mackaye, as well as many other heroes of this period, and is scheduled for a 2013 release.
