xxx ALL AGES xxx trailer


This is the latest promo clip for the film that I am currently directing, which carries the working title is "XXX All Ages XXX" (Where Boston Hardcore Began). Unlike some of the other films that have been released regarding this particular era that center on the guys in the bands, this one focuses on the social aspect of the scene from 1981-1984. Some of the subjects that the film concentrates on are: Community, Communication, The DIY ethic of the time and of course Straight Edge.

I was in Boston and a part of that very exciting scene at the time so this is a project that I feel very close to. It's a great responsibility to put things across the way that they really happened having been there at the time and having lived it.

My first hardcore show was was an early SS Decontrol show at the Media Workshop in 1981. Soon after I sang for Boston's "The Mighty CO's" and upon returning to New York City I formed "The High & The Mighty" and then later joined "Antidote". I went on to a career doing music videos and later directed the "Urban Street-Bike Warriors" series of films.

Many interviews have been done for the film so far including Jonathan Anastas (DYS), Jake Phelps (Editor Thrasher Magazine), Christine Else McCarthy (Actress) and Michael McDonald (Author). The film is also powered by archive photos and eventually we will be shooting dramatizations for some of the scenes. If anyone out there has any appropriate photos from the era then please get in touch with us. I hope that you enjoy the clip.

Thanx for the support.
