Lost Data Productions, an independent, DIY collective that promote underground / alternative bands through filming, documenting, live streaming bands on the UK underground circuit are to release a documentary on the iconic punk band DISCHARGE!
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.
The documentary follows the band through 3 of their UK gigs between 2015-2019, featuring exclusive interviews with the band – giving an intimate insight into their journey through punk rock over the decades – and featuring extensive live footage from gigs at London’s the 100 Club, T-Chances, and Bristol’s Exchange.
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-res images and an A2 poster!
After having documented a vast amount of gigs on the UK gig circuit since 2012, this is our first physical release, and the first of several documentaries in the series “Legends of Punk”.
