The Art of Punk – Black Flag – Raymond Pettibon

Raymond Pettibon Black Flag Bars

“On the first episode of “The Art of Punk” we dissect the art of the legendary Black Flag. From the iconic four bars symbols, to the many coveted and collected gig flyers, singles, and band t-shirts, all depicting the distinctive Indian ink drawn image and text by artist Raymond Pettibon. We start off in Los Angeles talking to two founding members singer Keith Morris, and bass player Chuck Dukowski, about what the scene was like in 1976 – setting the stage for the band’s formation, as well as the bands name, and the creation of the iconic four bars symbol. Raymond Pettibon talks with us from his New York art studio. Back in LA we meet with Flea, from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, about how the art, the music, and that early LA scene impacted his own life and career. To wrap it all up we sit and talk at length, with Henry Rollins, at MOCA Grand Ave in Los Angeles, about all of the above and more.”

BLACK FLAG – Rona Barrett TV Interview Tomorrow Coast to Coast NBC 10/11/1981

“Camera crews from the late-night NBC talk show Tomorrow captured footage of
the band’s performance–as well as LAPD cops in riot gear entering the venue and
later charging across Sunset Boulevard at Flag fans who were sarcastically Sieg
Heiling the officers. A mohawked Chuck Dukowski appeared on the show, patiently
explaining to a truly puzzled Rona Barrett that that Black Flag was not part of
the white supremacist movement and it was the LAPD who were the Nazis. It would
be the first of many appearances that Ginn and the ever-quotable Dukowski–“I’m
not a part of the everyday American society. In fact, I do my damnedest to tear
it down,” he told one interviewer–would make in the regional and national media
during the next few months as conflicts with the police continued at Black Flag
and other punk rock shows in Southern California.” – Mojo

2 On The Town – LA Punk Rock News Report From 1981 With BLACK FLAG

2 On The Town was a locally produced Los Angeles news magazine show. Here they report on the local punk scene, focusing on a Dez era Black Flag show at the Starwood. The violence is sensationalized, they repeatedly cuts to a shot of a fight in the audience, even editing it so it repeats, and interview a girl who had her clothing pulled off (seems like the inspiration for the scene in Suburbia). A critical undercover policeman gives his two cents in silhouette, I guess to protect his identity from the ruthless punk rockers. Chuck Dukowski and Greg Ginn share their thoughts on the aggressiveness of the music and it’s fans.
