I’ve got my (maga)zine addiction under control these days. But I admit my skin still gets tingly when I see an exhibition like “Someday All The Adults Will Die – Punk: anaesthetic” pop up.
“…a comprehensive overview of punk graphic design, highlighting imagery before, during and after the punk years, drawing upon previously unseen public and private archives and collections. Punk and post-punk graphic design is illuminated by examples of homemade cassettes, fanzines, posters, handbills, records and clothing. Highlights include original artworks by Gee Vaucher, Jamie Reid, Gary Panter, John Holmstrom and Penny Rimbaud…”

OFF! doesn’t do three minutes. But somehow, director Richard Kern is able to take the one minute and fourteen seconds of angry awesomeness (including *gasp* guitar solo) that is ‘Wiped Out’ and cram it full of moshpits, heavily breathing hipster girls, skate FAILs, surf FAILs, chubby kids french kissing and good ol’ punk rock shouting.
