Here's an article about Cleveland's Screaming's Cleveland premier from Scene magazine in Cleveland. The Cleveland premier will take place tomorrow night (Oct. 6th) at 9:15 PM at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Y'all be there!

I just returned from Japan and I'm jet-lagged to post more right now. Please show up for the movie!

Don't forget, tomorrow is the day! Get your ass out to the Egyptian Theatre for the premier of Cleveland's Screaming! at 7:30 PM. Info on address, how to get tix, promo stuff and what-not is all over this blog. So all's I'm saying this time is BE THERE!

Tickets for this Wednesday's world premier of Cleveland's Screaming are available on-line from Fandango. Just CLICK HERE. Some people have told me they couldn't or didn't want to get tix on line and asked if the show would be sold out. The Egyptian is a very big theater, so you're safe getting your tix at the door.

And I'll give you a parking hint. If you can't find street parking nearby, just go to the Hollywood and Highland shopping center. Buy anything there & you'll get a validation that entitles you to 4 hours parking for $2. That's better than any other lot nearby. I usually get a delicious Oatmeal Scotchie cookie from the cookie shop in the courtyard.

Anyway, here's an out-take from the movie. I liked this story. But it didn't fit the overall flow of the film, so I ended up dropping it. Go Blue Go Die!

Here's a new clip from the movie. This one's about some of what made the Akron/Cleveland hardcore scene unique and ends with a medly of tunes from some of the scene's best bands.

Here's the press release:

In the early 1980’s Cleveland, Ohio was screaming.

Screaming at the senile B-movie actor who’d somehow been elected president. Screaming at the Bible-thumping lunkheads who wanted to curtail all forms of free speech. Screaming at the mind-numbing complacency of a generation of vacant-eyed mall rats — our so-called “peers” — who didn’t seem to notice that we were being cheerfully led straight down the path towards global Armageddon. Northeast Ohio’s homegrown hardcore bands thrashed so hard they put the fear of God into nationally known punk bands who made it to our forgotten little watering hole.

Don Letts’ PUNK: ATTITUDE examined punk as a worldwide phenomenon. Paul Rachman’s AMERICAN HARDCORE looked at the hardcore scene in the USA. But the real American hardcore scene was a truly local phenomenon. All across the USA every city had its own scene with its own unique character and its own tale to tell. Stories about the scenes in L.A., D.C. and New York have been done to death. It’s time we got to know what was happening in the rest of America.

CLEVELAND’S SCREAMING is the chronicle of one American hardcore scene and the people who made it. It’s about why their involvement in punk rock inalterably changed the course of their lives forever. It’s a close-up look at how the events in a single city reflect the way an entire generation’s attitudes and values were utterly transformed by this grass-roots movement.

Produced and directed by Brad Warner, author of the best-selling books HARDCORE ZEN and SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP.

CLEVELAND’S SCREAMING will have its world premier Wednesday July 25, 2007 at 7:30 PM at the Egyptian Theater 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90028.

Yay! I just made a deal with Scat Records to release Cleveland's Screaming on DVD this Summer. It will be a DeLuxe supersized 2 disc set with all kinds of extras. I'll let you know more when I know more.

And I just realized, I don't have the YouTube version of the promo for the movie on this blog yet. A terrible oversight. Here it is:

Finally, I think most of you may know this by now. But I'm doing a weekly column for the Suicide Girls website. It appears on Saturdays at noon Pacific time. You don't have to be a member to read it. Just go to and click on "News."

"RADIO NAIROBI" by Bongo's Jungle Party

Bongo's Jungle Party was formed after the break up of Zero Defects with ex-Zero Defects drummer Mickey X-Nelson Hurray! on bass, his brother Paul "Bongo" Hurray! on drums and Dave McLean on guitar and vocals. This is their hit single "Radio Nairobi." The Fender Music Master bass that Mickey is playing thru most of the video is the one I played in Zero Defects. It belonged to Jimi Imij our lead singer. Mickey also plays the role of DJ Apeman Curtis. I love this song...
