New Circle Jerks Documentary Slated For Next Month

This could be cool.

Keith Morris is currently experiencing a resurgence of sorts with his latest band, Off! But back in the day he was one of the founding members of Black Flag and then later the Circle Jerks, two of Southern California's most influential punk rock bands.

Dave Markey, the director responsible for such documentaries as 1991: The Year Punk Broke and Desperate Teenage Lovedolls, brings us the tale of the Circle Jerks in My Career As A Jerk.

Oh, and you get a discount if you buy the DVD along with the Keith Morris throbblehead things.



This is the just the thing for the Circle Jerks fan in your life. It contains the brand new Circle Jerks documentary DVD and a limited edition Keith Morris Throbblehead... You save $5 (plus shipping discount) by ordering these items together HERE. Circle Jerks My Career As A Jerk is a brand new documentary to be released on DVD on September 25. From the beginning, LA punk band the CIRCLE JERKS were rooted in controversy. Formed by ex members of Black Flag and Red Cross (now Redd Kross) in late 1979, the band came to encapsulate the image, sound and energy of California Hardcore Punk. Filmmaker David Markey (1991: The Year Punk Broke, The Slog Movie) mixes in-depth interviews, rare live footage and historical perspective to illustrate the story of one of the most influential bands in the American underground.

 My Career as a Jerk follows the band from their early days and classic debut to navigating the independent label and touring scene of the 80s to the addictions, fights and injuries that forced their break up. Features interviews with members Keith Morris, Greg Hetson, Lucky Leher. Earl Liberty, Zander Schloss as well as J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr), Henry Rollins (Black Flag), Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion), and more. Keith Morris Throbblehead - Keith Morris, legendary frontman of Black Flag, The Circle Jerks and now Off!, has been throbble-ized! This figure capturing Keith in full-on live mode is limited to 1000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall, and is made of super strong polyresin. While the figure is labeled a Throbblehead, it's actually Keith's arm that does all the movement, aggressively pointing towards his mind. Displayed in a window box, Keith is accurately sculpted right down to the dreads, Vans, and "fuck you" stare.

 "I was a participant on a very long musical adventure through all the fun and miserable times and thinking about this I don't know if i'd change any of it!" - Keith Morris
