Penelope Spheeris’ “The Decline Of Western Civilization” was perceived as shocking and outrageous at the time of its original release in 1981 and its two follow-up films were no less extraordinary and revealing. The 3 films were also featuring some of the most influential and innovative musicians and groups of that time: Germs, Black Flag, X, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne.
Now for the first time, all 3 films are available in one deluxe DVD/Blu-ray box set. All 3 films have been restored in high definition and include commentary by Dave Grohl while Tawn Mastrey of KNAC Interviews Penelope Spheeris. Furthermore you get never-before-seen original footage, performances and interviews.
You can order the DVD version right here and the Blu-ray version right here. Below is an old video preview.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
