Lost Data Productions, an independent / DIY collective that promote underground / alternative bands through video production, gig streaming and more., has announced they’re about to release a documentary on the iconic punk band DISCHARGE! The documentary (pre-order HERE) follows the band through 3 of their UK gigs, featuring exclusive interviews and live footage. Filmed in full HD, the release is a special 2-disc box-set (DVD + BluRay), which comes with a bundle of extras including stickers, hi-resolution images and an A2 poster! After having documented a vast amount of gigs on the south-east UK gig circuit since 2012, this release marks Lost Data’s first physical release, and the first of several documentaries in the series “Legends of Punk”. To celebrate, we’ve teamed up to give you a couple of stills and promotional live images from the movie, along with its first video teaser below!
One of the original UK hardcore / UK82 punk bands, Discharge exploded onto the UK punk scene at the start of the ’80s with their signature hardcore sound, political lyrics and heavy pumping, d-beat style. The band cemented their place in history for introducing the world to the d-beat, now a household drum beat for bands from punk rock to thrash and extreme metal. The d-beat itself spawned a movement of countless bands such as the Varukers, Doom and Anti–Cimex.
A truly legendary band, Discharge have influenced countless bands, not only in the punk scene, but they are also cited as being a big influence to heavy weights such as Metallica, Sepultura, Anthrax, Napalm Death and Machine Head.
