New restoration courtesy of American Genre Film Archive (AGFA). Made for Roger Corman’s New World Pictures after Spheeris’ phenomenal success with The Decline of Western Civilization, this nuanced look at a patchwork family of punks banded together against bad parents and shitty authority figures is made even more rad by hammering live sets from SoCal hardcore squads D.I. and TSOL.
