This exciting collection of live performances (all from England circa 1977) is the best punk video compilation I've seen. It has clips of such legends as the Sex Pistols, Clash, Buzzcocks, Jam, Joy Division, Siouxie and the Banshees, Penetration, Iggy Pop, Undertones, and the Stranglers. All are packaged with great taste, eschewing the usual filler (banal interviews, audience footage...) to deliver a solid hour of music. Some of the sets are timeless classics: Iggy Pop, while performing rather sedate material, steals the show with his feline charisma and special brand of tragic energy. The Clash are an easy second, raging and convulsing through "What's My Name" as though the walls are collapsing around them. Here they show ten times as much energy as anywhere in their film "Rudeboy". Penetration slams through "Don't Dictate" despite brutal audience violence, Joy Division chills the blood with an intense "Shadowplay," and the Jam power their way through "In the City" and "Taking Your Love" like human jackhammers. Their stomping, ratcheting blur has to be seen to be believed.
