Here’s a cool video that originally aired on CBC Sept 27, 1977. Hana Gartner decides to find out what this punk thing was all about by interviewing Canadian punk legends Teenage Head, The Viletones and The Poles between sets at a five hour show.
Apparently she didn’t dig it too much. She asks Steve Leckie aka Nazi Dog why he cuts himself, and while speaking with Frankie Venom she told him, “I’ve been listening to you this evening, and the Viletones, and if I may be honest the only thing I got out of it was a headache.” Frankie responds, ‘Oh gee, yeah? Tough.” Also features interviews with punk girls who slash themselves because they’re bored and much more.
