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.”

.
Long considered a cult classic, “Mondo Hollywood” captures the underside of Hollywood by documenting a moment in time (1965-67), when an inquisitive trust in the unknown was paramount, hope for the future was tangible and life was worth living on the fringe. An interior monologue narrative approach is used throughout the film, where each principal person shown not only decided on what they wanted to be filmed doing, but also narrated their own scenes. The film opens with Gypsy Boots (the original hippie vegan – desert hopping blender salesman), and stripper Jennie Lee, working out ‘Watusi-style’ beneath the ‘Hollywood’ sign — leading into the ‘sustainable community’ insight of Lewis Beach Marvin III, the S&H Green Stamp heir, who lived in a $10 a month garage while owning a mountain retreat in Malibu.
