From the archives of Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong comes this excellently shot video of The Dead Boys, with Stiv Bators in all his glory.

Ivers and Armstrong have nearly 100 musical performances from New York City’s punk era (1975-80) that they’re currently restoring. Check out the archives. It’s mindblowing. The collection would make an amazing DVD box set. Ivers and Armstrong were there, right in the middle of it all.

“Sicker than the Stones, worse marauders than Morrison on meth, more erotic even than Iggy on Iggy, the Dead Boys are the undisputed princes of punk New York.”

Jump to the next page to see what “punk’s baddest peckers” were up to one night in 1978. NSFW.

The Ramones and Dead Boys: ‘Punking Out’ 1977

image
 
These clips of The Ramones and The Dead Boys at CBGB in 1977 capture the birth of punk in all of its raw glory. Taken from the film Punking Out directed by Maggi Carson and Ric Shore, this is the scene as I remember it: unpretentious, fun, full of energy and kind of goofy.

Punking Out is a terrific time capsule of a time and place and really should be more widely seen. You can order a DVD copy at the film’s website.  The site hasn’t been updated in a few years, but the ‘shopping cart’ appears to still be functioning.

Dee Dee’s glue rant is hilarious.
