DJ SeMeN SPeRmS at Lincoln Center for Repo Man After-Party Tuesday 1984 Punk Cult Classic






REPO MAN
Tuesday, December 15 at 7:30pm
If you’ve seen it, you’ll never forget it. If you haven’t, here’s your chance to discover Alex Cox’s inimitable indie landmark Repo Man starring Emilio Estevez and featuring music by the likes of Suicidal Tendencies and Black Flag. After this special screening, keep rocking with an after-party and open bar (thanks to Stella Artois and 42BELOW) in the Furman Gallery. DJ SeMeN SPeRmS will spin tracks.

Alex Cox’s 1984 debut remains an unclassifiable anomaly—not to mention a cult classic. When punk-rocker Otto (Emilio Estevez) loses girl and job, it’s only the beginning of a most surreal downward spiral. Conned into helping a lizard-like repo man (Harry Dean Stanton), Otto’s situation mutates from merely depressing to life threatening. Shady cops, UFO freaks, CIA operatives, and all manner of additional yahoos converge in a manic hunt for a ’64 Chevy Malibu and the Top Secret Whatsit stowed in the trunk. Cox’s film may be an oddity, but it’s also a spot-on slice of Eighties zeitgeist—an uncanny time capsule of an America in the grips of the Reagan ethos, and all the attendant cultural aggression that era fomented. Shot by the impeccable Robby Müller, the film features music by Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, Fear, and The Circle Jerks (who also appear in the film).

I’ve heard about this magazine for years, I know Aaron Rose from Alleged Gallery always had some around back in the day, and he was definitely influenced by it. He wrote an article about TA for ANP Quarterly a few years back. I really don’t know the whole story about the history of this magazine, just that it started in 1981 and is still bein’ published to this day.

The vintage ones have that old school cut ‘n paste zine feel that’s hard to get nowadays, as witnessed in the more recent covers use of computer layout. The early covers have that janky printing quality that reminds me old underground comix, vintage reggae 45’s, or old firework labels.

I haven’t seen many mags that represent a subculture better than this one.

It’s live and uncut, made by those who are really livin’ it,

with a funk that is all D.I.Y.

Romance runs through it like an echoin’ oldies song.

It’s the magazine version of a tattooed teardrop.
