“The Pistols called collect and the West Coast paid the bill” – RAGE is the documentation of the evolution of one of the most explosive art forms to emerge in American music in modern times. West Coast Punk music parallels the birth of blues and jazz as an avant-garde art movement. The film, directed by Scott Jacoby and Michael Bishop, features artists pursuing the American Dream on their own terms – including Jello Biafra, the Dead Kennedys, the Circle Jerks, Christian Death, US Bombs, and more. Their spirit is personified in their lifestyle and individualism. You’ll be surprised at how creative, sincere and thoughtful these artists are in their ongoing pursuit of music and art outside of the commercial arena.
