List of punk films Joe Strummer concert footage from the movie, TV, and radio service Punkcast Many punk-themed films have been made. The No Wave Cinema and Remodernist film movements owe much to punk aesthetics. Derek Jarman and Don Letts are notable punk filmmakers.
Preceding the musical tribute to our fallen comrade were tearful and funny memories recounted by a long list of friends. We played 10 of Wimpy's great songs he had written for The Subhumans and D.
The whole evening was fitting farewell to one Canada's greatest musicians, a great father and one of my best friends. Joe liked it so much he got them on the label! One of Joe's faves! A and lifetime activist has joined in the fight to try and stop the expansion of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline and the quadrupling of tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet.
Joe is putting together an all star cast of BC's best musicians to raise money for the legal defense of the pipeline protesters and to keep the public engaged and aware of the potential harm that this pipeline expansion represents. It's up to us, the people, to protect our rights and our democracy.
The National Energy Board hearings are looking more and more like a sham with a per-ordained outcome. We're going to be pro active and try and put a stop to this. Transporting bitumen through inland coastal waterways is insane.
A dangerous move that is being pushed by Canada's risk taking ruling Conservative Party. The federal government has made only the token of effort to try and speed up our transition towards renewable energy.
After a recent D.
We are failing a great test as a country, we should be ashamed. This email address is being protected from spambots.
The toughest part is the thinking about the children he has left behind, his son Dillon, his daughter Sarah and his step son Cole, who Brian helped raise. My most heartfelt condolences to them and to Brian's older brother Roger. About four years later the three of us befriended Ken Montgomery Dimwitwhose family had moved to the Lochdale area.
It occurred to me later on in life that we truly were "The Four Amigoes".
The four of us started our first high school band called Misty Grey and we were terrible, but we were learning. In when we were around 18 and 19 years old we left Vancouver in an attempt to "get back to the land". We were kind of junior hippies in a sense in the small BC towns of Lumby and Cherryville, that was a lot of fun but ultimately that fizzled out.
We got our first booking in Merritt BC and promptly got fired and our collective asses kicked out of town before "the locals cut you guys in two with their chainsaws". Well that unfortunate booking led us to abandon that predictable approach to rock n' roll and to take on the new ground breaking style of punk rock, which we did with an unparalleled zeal.
We started Vancouver's second punk band in the summer ofwe called it The Skulls. Brian was becoming a stalwart on bass, Dimwit was well on his way to becoming one of Canada's greatest drummers ever and Simon Werner was an ace on guitar. That left just me, by default I became Joey Shithead, "That maniac on vocals".
We played around Vancouver for awhile, then in October we all moved to Toronto to join the "scene" there. Gerry Hannah, looking for adventure, moved to Toronto with us and this is how the legend of "Wimpy" was born. Gerry was writing songs but had no band, so we had Gerry play bass, Wimpy sang, Simon played guitar and I drummed, we called this obnoxious outfit Wimpy and the Bloated Cows.
Thus Brian finally had a great punk rock nickname and also the tradition of "fuck bands" was born, where people traded instruments and made up instant bands. At the start of Wimpy and Simon moved to the U.
Good plan but Dimwit and I screwed up the plan by moving back to Vancouver, Wimpy was broke and freezing in London, so he soon followed. That line up soon merged with The Stiffs, solidifying the Subhumans classic line up of Wimpy on vocals, Gerry Useless on bass, Mike Graham on guitar and Dimwit on drums.
But one of Canada's greatest bands were on their way. Featuring the great songwriting of Wimpy, Gerry and Mike, the powerhouse drumming of Dimwit, the Subhumans were led by Brian Wimpy Roy Goble, the most original front man as you could find this side of Iggy Pop.
It's not totally clear but I do believe that Wimpy invented "crowd surfing" when Mike would start playing lead Wimpy would jump into the crowd, then one night the crowd caught him and held him up, I had never seen anything like it.Punk Rock is different from every other type of music in a lot of ways, and it is truly a dying breed of music if you are actually talking about authe.
