Interview with James June Schneider on his documentary Punk the Capital

On the occasion of the screening in Berlin of the documentary Punk the Capital James June Schneider visited our studio, where he was introduced to Jason Honea. James’ movie covered the east coast punk scene. Jason was actively involved in the west coast punk movement. Both guests share an enormous knowledge of persons, bands and anecdotes.

Hear about yippies, Reagan, GI’s, obscure basements, bad brains, cramps, germs, death club, skaters and how to deal with a vast archive of super8 and VHS-footage and bring it together in a documentary.


Punk the Capital is on tour in Europe, with lots of Q&A moments with James and Jeff Nelson (Minor Thread/Discord Records)
