below are two clips from arguably the best punk documentaries ever filmed. the first is the great x closing out decline of western civilization with their song 'nasuea' which alas is still out of print. in this clip you can see the idiot-savant darby crash of the germs in a leather jacket swigging from a bottle wrapped in a brown bag.

the second clip is again x with their song 'we're desperate' from their own documentary the unheard music. i first saw this docu late at night in '86 broadcast on an ancient satellite service [sac was just getting cable installed at this time] called select tv.

all that slamdancing makes me wistful. as jon cone once quoted an old friend of his: oh fucking sweet bird of youth, where the fuck has thou fucked off to.
