L. Kent Wolgamott: Pandemic Scopes – New York Live Albums and Punk Films | Music

I would recommend the above for those like me who miss the live show and who also put the Lowe / Straitjackets record. It’s really beautiful: a career survey on some of the best songs of the witty singer-songwriter, who has a fantastic voice and perfectly accompanied by the masked band.

Here is another pandemic discovery: while I was browsing Amazon Prime looking for something to watch, I came across “Punk Revolution”, a three-hour documentary that retraces the “underground” music scene in New York from The Velvet Underground halfway from the 60s until the end of the first wave of “punk” bands in the early 80s at the CBGB music club.

He ran through is the optimal phrase: I have never heard of Tom O’Dell’s film. Now, having watched it all once and in part two or three times, it’s the best documentary about New York City’s early punks up there – mine and a time that influenced my musical taste a lot.

It features great comments from Richard Hell, producer Craig Leon, television Richard Lloyd, singer Jayne County, photographer and CBGB flag bearer Roberta Bayley and legendary Village Voice rock critic Robert Christgau. The narrative is also modeled by a couple of writers who have made books on velvets and on the New York scene.

It’s full of live footage, many of which I’ve never seen before, things like the VU, Patti Smith, the Ramones, Talking Heads, Blondie and the New York Dolls.
