Hard Core Logo | 1998
Told like a slice-of-life music documentary, a satiristic chronicle of the seamier side of life as experienced by thirtysomething punk-rock musicians. The band Hard Core Logo once defined the punk rock scene in Vancouver. But mismanagement and petty bickering led to a bitter breakup that left a generation of devastated fans in its wake. The members of the band, Joe Dick, Billy Talent, John Oxenberger and Pipefitter, scattered and all hopes for reconciliation were lost... Fifteen years later, the tragic shooting of aging Bucky Haight brings Hard Core Logo together for an anti-handgun benefit gig as the story follows these four characters who struggle to reconcile their mythic past with the hangover realities of the present. More than the story of a band--it's a film about lost dreams, the irresistible lure of the open road, and memories of youth that fade away in the rearview mirror.
