Punk is back. Not punk, of course. Real punk is long dead. But the idea of punk is very much alive. Take The Color Of Noise, a documentary about how Amphetamine Reptile and its founder Tom Hazelmyer paved the way for proto-grunge, punk, and noise rock bands like Helmet, Hammerhead, and Melvins in the ‘80s and ‘90s. The film paints Hazelmyer as a hard-drinking, gun-toting madman, and he doesn’t deny a thing. There’s plenty of history to relive: The film is sprinkled with interviews with familiar, aging rockers from the scene, like former Dead Kennedys lead singer and industry legend Jello Biafra.
