I have seen an unholy amount of punk documentary and biopics; maybeeven more than that. For whatever reason every band that half filled abar has a film about their career/supposed influence. Once Arab OnRadar got their own film you knew things had gone too far. Thosequickie fan films can be exciting, and occasionally interesting...andsometimes you even find yourself half drunk and screaming in thebackground. But they rarely achieve the status as film, really justhome videos for the die hards.

The Unheard Music is the exception that proves the rule. Maybe due tobeing produced when the market/distribution plan would have beennebulous at best, this comes across as an independent and brilliantpiece of art, which just happens to feature one of the first wave LA'sbest punk bands. Unheard Music is constructed like a collage, like oneof those bootleg video mixtapes that were floating around theunderground back in the day. Your basic interview, performance,rehearsal sequences are intercut with found footage and various Exenebased weirdness.

The true greatness of the film is the illustration of how X could neverpossibly find themselves in any subsection of the mainstream. For aband that is so informed by the classic sounds of American rock androll, for a band that would have had dance hits in 1957, it isdisheartening to listen to sleazy label suits babble about how theentire country would not "get" X. It's obnoxious at best to think thoseweasels are making value judgments about my taste based on geography.But then maybe that does explain Nickelback.

This is a fresh an exciting film about not just X, but what a statementit once was to say you were into punk. It took a certain amount ofeffort since the powers that be actively kept you from hearing thismusic. Wasn't on the radio, TV, or in suburban record stores. Makes youreally understand how much of an uphill battle artist-musicians have.

I love X, I love seeing them live, but this movie added very little to themusic. Theband seems kind of halfhearted about doing the film, their stories are notthatinteresting. When they go out on tour trying to get their music heard,there's nota single foot of film from the tour; instead, there's a cutesy montage ofpostcards.

As for the live footage, a good portion of it is from a shoot madeexpresslyfor thefilm, and to judge by the credits, at least half the songs are eithervideosor lip-synched.

On the whole, the live X in Decline of Western Civilization is far morecompellingthan the whole of The Unheard Music.

It has been said that X was to Los Angeles what the Ramones were to NewYork. But X was far more brilliant. Their musicianship was superior andtheir songs were clever and intelligent in a fun way. When you mixsuper-coolness with excellence you really have something special.Otherwise stated, what happens when you mix punk rock with true musicaland artistic genius? One of the biggest travesties of fate in music,was the fact that they did not become commonly known nationwide and didnot have the opportunity to sell out the larger arenas. There is stilltime for many more to be introduced to them by obtaining their albumsand having the opportunity to see them perform live. Their first twostudio albums, Los Angeles and Wild Gift, were ranked by Rolling Stonemagazine as being among the 500 greatest albums of all time, and 1981'sWild Gift was named "Record of the Year" by Rolling Stone, The LosAngeles Times, The New York Times, and Village Voice.
