Filmage: The Story of Descendents/ALL

Filmage: The Story of Descendents/ALL

The Descendents is one of the most iconic punk bands in the past few decades. Formed in 1977 in Manhattan Beach, the band went through many changes, transitions, and hiatus. At one point, the band had an offshoot with ALL.

In the end, their music affected many fans and the bands’ story was brought to life in the music documentary Filmage: The Story of Descendents/ALL.

Here’s the synopsis:

Long before punk rock inflicted its puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a van brewing a potent mix of pop, angst, love, and coffee and influencing a generation to come. Interviews with the band and contemporaries such as David Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), Mike Watt (Minutemen, Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion), and others reveal the untold tale of one of the most overachieving and influential bands in punk.

Originally, the band was formed by guitarist Frank Navetta, bassist Tony Lombardo, and drummer Bill Stevenson. In 1979, they enlisted Milo Aukerman as a singer and then became a known hardcore punk band in the 1980s. The Descendents released seven studio albums, three live albums, three compilation albums, and three Eps. Since 1986, the band’s lineup consisted of Milo Aukerman, guitarist Stephen Egerton, bassist Karl Alvarez, and drummer Bill Stevenson.
