This film was available on VHS. I’m not sure if it was ever available on LD or not.
For those who haven’t heard of it, it was a documentary about the heavy metal scene in LA in the 80s. I believe that the licensing of all the songs is what prevented this from getting a DVD release. The director, Penelope Spheeris (of Wayne’s World ‘fame’) said that she had bought all the rights to all three of her “Decline” documentaries and would be releasing them on DVD… but that interview was back in 1998 when she released the third film and there’s been no news since.
There are VHS dubs of rental copies that are on eBay, but that’s not the quality I’d like to see. So, does anybody know anything about this movie? Anything about whether it was released on LD? Anything? Any hope of preserving this?
