DeJa Vu

I wasn't into most of the bands featured in this Ch4 documentary, but OMFG I miss the days of tribes more than I thought possible. How on earth can you ever successfully describe to a new music fan what it was like to walk past a stranger and see a badge, t-shirt, logo and share a knowing smile and wink?

How can you describe the feeling of discovering a new band in a sea of shit? The letter writing, the trading, the scores, the rip offs, the arseholes, the mad people, the ones you still talk to today, 30 years later? I've tried and they just don't get it.

Anyway, this is a documentary about the British hardcore scene shown VERY late at night, well early hours of the morning to be exact, and is really worth spending 22 minutes 30 seconds to watch.

Or you can try dazed

I have no idea if this if you're allowed to view this outside the UK; if you can't let me know and I'll try and rip it. Enjoy.
