‘A landmark of punk cinema’ – Spectrum Culture
‘Consider this essential’ – Rock! Shop! Pop!
As the Sex Pistols first US tour descended into chaos and the punk pioneers imploded, punk rock was mushrooming in its birth place – London.
Filmmaker Lech Kowalski was on both sides of the Atlantic to capture these seismic events in music history – the death of the Sex Pistols on their American tour, where they played their notorious gigs deep in the heart of Texas, culminating in their final show in San Francisco and the new wave of punk bands making an impact across the pond. This seminal moment in time is captured in the rarely seen D.O.A. A Right of Passage, which finally arrives for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD Dual format thanks to Second Sight.
D.O.A.: A Right of Passage is the unique, grainy and up-close document of an iconic musical movement, packed with live footage of the Pistols’ incendiary American shows, as well as live performances from the greatest punk band you’ve never heard of, Terry and The Idiots, alongside Dead Boys, Generation X, Rich Kids, X-Ray Spex, Sham 69 with additional music from The Clash and Iggy Pop. It arrives on 10 September 2018, complete with brand new bonus features and limited edition booklet in the first 2000 copies.
The film takes us behind-the-scenes via bars, clubs and car parks and features the now infamous Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen bed interview. And no punk documentary would be complete without an appearance from the inimitable Mary Whitehouse.
