Destroy All Movies!!! Tour Poster

Destroy All Movies!!!: The Complete Guide To Punks On Film is a wildly comprehensive release featuring A-to-Z coverage of over 1100 films from around the world, as well as dozens of exclusive interviews with the cast/creators of crucial titles like Repo Man, Return of the Living Dead, The Decline of Western Civilization and Valley Girl. Editors Zack Carlson and Bryan Connolly reviewed countless prime examples of straight-to-VHS slasher trash, Brooklyn skid row masterpieces, Filipino breakdancing fairytales, no-budget apocalyptic epics and movies that shouldn't even have been released, many of which have never been written about. Plus hundreds of eyeball-smashing stills and posters, many in full color!

This hot pink-infused tome nails down decades of insanity with superhuman research, vicious precision and electrically charged stills and images, and is the first and final definitive armchair roadmap to punk and new wave on celluloid. After over 5 years and 20,000 movies researched, this pulse-bursting monument to lowbrow cultural obsession is a must for all film fanatics, music maniacs, anti-fashion mutants, '80s nostalgists, sleazoids, cop-killers and spazzmatics!

DAM!!! also features tons of exclusive interviews with music/big screen luminaries including Ian MacKaye, Richard Hell, Penelope Spheeris, Nick Zedd, John Doe & Exene Cervenka, Alex Cox, Martha Coolidge, Lee Ving, Keith Morris, Mary Woronov and many more!

Destroy All Movies!!!: The Complete Guide To Punks On Film is slated to be released November 2010 just in time for Carlson and Connolly to hit the road on a movie screening and book signing tour. These two cinemasochists will pack a van full of books and 33mm film prints, doing 17 events in 8 cities in 14 days. Bookstore shows will incorporate the occasional live hardcore band or pile of free doughnuts, while ultra-rare 35mm theatrical screenings will include:

CLASS OF 1984 (1982) - Punk teen maniacs live the chaos in director Mark Lester's rabid ode to juvenile delinquency. The most violent punk classic of all boils over into mayhem as teachers take on new wave students in a battle to the DEATH!!

TIMES SQUARE (1980) - Two teenage girls set New York on fire in the ultimate street punk battle cry. This film was thought lost -- even by the studio that released it -- but we've found a one-of-a-kind 35mm print!

URGH!: A MUSIC WAR (1981) - The crucial on-stage document of the then-rampaging punk and new wave explosion. Earth-shaking performances from countless bands including Devo! Dead Kennedys! Klaus Nomi! Gary Numan! The Go-Go's! The Cramps! X! Gang of Four! Must be seen to be believed.

VALLEY GIRL (1983) - This '80s teen masterpiece is the first, last and most hilarious word in punk heartbreak. Nicolas Cage stars as an LA new waver who gets his guts tangled up over an all-American high school princess. Unstoppable.

…all these plus punk classics like LADIES & GENTLEMEN - THE FABULOUS STAINS, GET CRAZY, the afterschool special THE DAY MY KID WENT PUNK and many more!
