A 52 Week Autobiography Through Music – Week 17 – Black Flag
This week’s video is a bit longer than usual. I seem to have had a lot to say about my Punk days even though they didn’t really begin until a few years after I first heard Black Flag. They made me aware of the music but as I say in the video it was not until I turned 16 or so that I really started buying other Punk albums and going to shows and eventually playing the music.
I thought it would be cool to film outside but in retrospect maybe it wasn’t the best plan. It was a bit noisy and clouds kept coming and going so the video is a bit crazy as well. In the end I hope the point gets across that Black Flag was a very influential first introduction to Punk music and the attitudes and lifestyles that were pretty inextricably tied to it.
