We Got Power Films presents David Markey's 1982 homespun documentation of the Los Angeles/Orange County early 80's hardcore punk scene.  A unique look at an era, left of field even by it's peers The Decline Of Western Civilization and Another State Of Mind.  Like a fanzine on film, The Slog Movie has an intimate fan/ backstage/ on stage feel. Markey shot this film on Super-8 in 1981 and '82 while he was editing We Got Power fanzine and playing drums in Sin 34. Interviews, incredible live performances, and humorous interludes with Circle One, Symbol 6, Wasted Youth, Red Cross, TSOL, The Cheifs, Sin 34, Fear, Circle Jerks, and Henry Rollins, Chuck Dukowski, Robo & Dez Cadena (Black Flag) . See glimpses of scenesters such as Pat Smear and Randy Rampage hanging out at Oki-Dogs; Jordan Schwartz as himself, Ted Nugent, & The Devil in a Ray Pettibon skateboard commercial; gigs at the Whisky A Go-Go, Cuckoo's Nest, Bards Apollo, Club 88, and the Santa Monica Pier. The DVD includes a gig flyer gallery and a running commentary from David Markey, Circle Jerks' Keith Morris, the Minutemen's Mike Watt, and We Got Power's Jordan Schwartz. A history lesson from the So Cal early 80's hardcore underground. See the Los Angeles Hardcore scene explode, and in retrospect connect the dots from 1981 to 1991, The Year Punk Broke.
