Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)

United States / 103 min. / 2014 / English


 

The heroic era of Dischord Records, the label from Washington DC, and the hard-core community that established it. A critical insider documentary that doesn’t pull any punches. Minor Threat, Teen Idles and S.O.A., Black Market Baby and Faith. Go-Go Funk, Straight Edge, Anti-Reagan protest, “emo”, rifts and humour.

 

Salad Days captures the heroic era of Washington DC label Dischord Records, and the local hardcore community. "You can always make something grow here", Ian McKaye asserts, "because nobody is watching you". This is an insider documental that isn't afraid to split hairs. They did fantastic things: Dischord "was austere, utilitarian and hard to corrupt" (affirms Henry Rollins); Hardcore united all the city's freaks and floaters; the positive message; and then there was the role of the local press. But there were also less welcome elements ("it was a guy's fraternity", the girls say). Each frame is an icon, each phrase a hymn to transcendence. All the groups appear, from Minor Threat and Ten Idles and S.O.A. to Black Market Baby and Faith. There are oddities (the links with the black Go-Go scene) skins, Straight Edge ("a benevolent gesture", according to McKaye), anti-Reagan protest and the apparition of "emo" (Embrace, Soulside, One Last Wish...). There's even humour: McKaye confesses that he still receives prank calls from drunken kids taking the piss.
