Black Flag Kills Ants On Contact

Black Flag Kills Ants On Contact

“British ex-punk rocker Adam Ant planned an autograph signing at Tower Records in Hollywood to promote their new album. There to welcome him were dozens of fans; also there were The Connected ( the movie Suburbia was based on the TC), and we came armed with a handful of stickers from Black Flag and a carton of eggs. (I vaguely remember that he had been talking down what was a tight-knit Hollywood punk community, and we took that personal.) Anyway, while the kids with eggs took positions on the hill, other TC caused joyful havoc in the parking lot, and Mark Alva and I interviewed both loyal fans and confused passersby.. Members of the TC were also in several L.A. punk bands, including The Oziehares, Black Flag, Red Scare, and Twisted Roots. The Connected were: Malissa, Maggie, Emil, Mark, Layne, Gloria, Ricky, Critter, Rachel, Brian, Stephanie, Joanie, Judi, Tova, Drew, Stewart, Bobbi Brat, Leslie, and Amie. I’m sorry if I left anybody out. Lighthearted fun for the whole family.”

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.
