Check out the rest of his post - which is the first of a series - here.
So we were made aware last week that our documentary has leaked onto the internet. This has provided Matt and I(Jai) with mixed feelings; on one side itís potentially a missed opportunity to have it released officially & never make back our investment but on the other it seems to be really striking a chord with people and thatís what we always intended to do in the first place. I can honestly say that spending months on end hearing everyoneís view that was involved in the 90ís punk scene was one of the best experiences of my life and as a fan it doesnít get much better than that.
The documentary explores the punk explosion into the mainstream that occurred in the early- to mid-'90s, and features interviews with Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, The Offspring's Dexter Holland, Greg Graffin and Brett Gurewitz from Bad Religion, Tim Armstrong, Matt Freeman, and Lars Fredriksen of Rancid, Fat Mike of NOFX, and many others. The project ran into issues involving funds for music clearance rights, which has stalled the commercial release of the film. It was narrated by Tony Hawk who's series of games sparked a significant amount of interest in the genre as well.
