If It Ain't Cheap, It Ain't Punk: 15 Years of Plan-It X Records (DIY)
Synopses & Reviews
Over the last fifteen years, Plan-it X Records helped foster a huge cultural revolution — uniting geographically divided DIY punk communities under one umbrella. With a united ethic and common goals, this scene has grown to a critical mass while some bands flirted with mainstream success and others choose to remain firmly rooted in the basement punk scene. This original documentary climaxes in the 2006 Festival where punks from all over the world met up in Bloomington, IN for a week of music and skillsharing. Original footage of This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, Japanther, Defiance, Ohio, Ghost Mice, One Reason, Operation: Cliff Clavin, Soophie Nun Squad, and more! From each DVD sold, we will give $1 each to Mother Hubbard's Cupboard and Pages to Prisoners!
Plan-it X Records is a stalwart mainstay in the militantly DIY punk scene, and this documentary shows how it united geographically divided but culturally similar punk communities under one ethos: this is a community more interested in communication, sharing, and radical politics than money.
