Say What?

pogo2posterFINAL2The Last Pogo Jumps Again studies the evolution of Toronto from small town to big city and it’s pop/counter-culture lifestyle during the early and mid-70s.  It centers around the first wave of Toronto punk rock and new-wave music, from the Ramones playing the New Yorker Theatre in ’76 through the police shutting down Teenage Head and causing a riot at the Horseshoe Tavern’s infamous “The Last Pogo” concert in December 1978.

London had the Sex Pistols, New York had the Ramones, but Toronto had a punk movement all it’s own.  The Toronto landscape by the late ’70s was forever changed with the infusion of the DIY/Punk/Alternative Culture(s) movement.  Six years in the making, The Last Pogo Jumps Again successfully explores the whys and wherefores of what was arguably one of the most exciting but misunderstood movements in Toronto’s history.

The DVD contains the 204 minute documentary, plus over a 100 minutes of added material, and a snazzy 24-page booklet.  Check the Shop for details on where you can purchase it.

The Last Pogo (1978) is the documentary that chronicled the last punk rock show at the Horseshoe Tavern when it was run by legendary Toronto promoters The Garys (Topp and Cormier) featuring The Scenics, Cardboard Brains, The Secrets, The Mods, The Ugly, The Viletones and Teenage Head. The Last Pogo was released on DVD in 2008 to great reviews.  Available at the Shop.

LOS ANGELES — A troubling report finds Justin Bieber is a punk thanks to The Last Pogo Jumps Again DVD.

After being destroyed by the Comedy Central Roast in Los Angeles, California on March 14th, 2015, Justin Bieber took some time to reflect on why everyone truly hates him. Allegedly, while lying in a Scrooge McDuck bathtub-full-of-cash, Bieber finally popped in his copy of The Last Pogo Jumps Again; a documentary about the Toronto punk scene. Sources confirm the DVD was given to him last year, by his aunt, who’s still pretty cool. For the three hour and twenty minute duration of the film, Justin drank in historic evidence of way more impressive things that happened in Canada other than himself. The DVD caused the pop sensation to suddenly and very dramatically change his image.

According to his personal security footman, Beef-Jake, Bieber looked at himself in the mirror for a solid ten minutes then attempted to hawk a loogy at his reflection. In a flurry of tiny-tanned aggression, Justin then messed up his Ellen DeGeneres-esque brush cut, and proclaimed to his staff of forty-seven people, “Ya’ll better grab a gold-pool-noodle while you still can, cuz I’m gonna burn this shit hole to the ground!” Bieber’s “shit hole” estate home is a stunning structure, beautifully incorporating an extravagant Moroccan motif. At around midnight, his entire staff was spotted fleeing the premises with as many luxury backyard-pool accessories as their little arms could carry.

Sources also confirm that by sunrise on March 15, 2015 the teen-dream changed his name from Justin Bieber to Justin Bloodshed. Which he spelled out using his own blood on one of his many platinum gold records. He probably could have just made a call or something, but by this time Justin’s many electronic devices had been looted by nosey neighbors. When asked about his sudden lifestyle change, Bloodshed said, “The Last Pogo Jumps Again showed me the way, man. I realized I was a total dickhead and needed to get real and get raw. And the only way to do that was to go old-school punk.”

And he’s not alone. Incredibly influential former One Direction boy-bander, Zayn Malik, is going down the very same road. “I showed Zayn the Last Pogo Jumps Again, and then he just said ‘Fuck it bro, I’m going in a new direction’. It’s the new, new, new wave of punk. I’m not doing anymore Klein ads either.  I don’t even wear underwear now, yo! I took my ivory toilet and threw it off my goddamn terrace. How punk can I get?” While many old fans of Bieber are shocked by this turn of events, others are accepting it just fine. Like his former employee Beef-Jake, who totally scored an ivory toilet.

There have now been reported sightings of Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, and even Selina Gomez toting the Last Pogo Jumps Again DVD in and around Hollywood beauty bars. Thanks to Justin and Zayn (aka: The Bosom Buddies of Badassery) spreading the film like herpes, going punk is totally on fleek.
