Legendary Toronto punk doc now streaming online

A huge piece of Toronto music history is now online. In the spirit of the DIY ethos of the punk documentary, Colin Brunton and Kire Paputt's 2013 film The Last Pogo Jumps Again has been released for VOD rental and download via Vimeo.

The three hour follow up to 1978's short film The Last Pogo (filmed, of course, at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern) digs deep into Toronto punk lore, with exhaustive coverage of the DIY scene in the 1970's including seminal bands Teenage Head, The Viletones, The Mods, The Scenics, The Cardboard Brains, The Secrets, and The Ugly - plus The Ramones, and the police.

The riot at the Horseshoe Tavern that erupted when the cops broke up Teenage Head's 1978 show is considered to be one of the defining moments of Toronto music, but there's a lot more to the story. Watch the trailer below, and watch on demand here.
