The punk movement emerged in the mid-70s as a rebellion against mainstream rock, attracting musicians seeking a different lifestyle. Don Letts' documentary "Punk Attitude" captures this spirit, featuring insights from Jim Jarmusch and Glenn Branca on 60's roots. Letts delves into the original New York punk wave with bands like Television and Talking Heads. The film's second part highlights the UK explosion with ***** Pistols and Clash, along with the contemporary scene. Interviews with Chrissie Hynde and Paul Simonon shed light on DIY's impact on fashion, music, and even publishing, influencing new wave and reggae.
