Up The Punks TV

We were recently approached by Wellington Photograph and archivist, John Lake, if we would like to participate in the Up The Punks TV series.

The UTPTV is an extension of the incredible Up The Punks archive that John has been working on for over ten years, collating and documenting the lived history of punk rockers in the capital city of Wellington. It continues to be an every expanding and living record of an incredibly rich local history, that has been recorded and stored on a wiki page, presented as two sizable local exhibitions in 2002 and 2012, a compiling of a cassette of music across the decades with zine, and now this short doco series. Alongside this was a three month stint in Beijing, exporting the Up The Punks to an international level.

It’s an amzing project, and we’re very happy to be included. cheers John.

P.s. John also made the video to the song Transit for us in 2013
