Richard Hell & The Voidoids: "Blank Generation"- February 23, 2010

MVD Visual will release the classic rock film "Blank Generation", February 23, 2010.

"...Finally on DVD comes the classic punk rock movie from 1980 starring Richard Hell, illustrating the end of the first wave of New York City punk rock better than any documentary.

'Nada' (Carole Bouquet), a beautiful French journalist on assignment in New York, records the life and work of up and coming punk rock star, 'Billy' (Richard Hell). Soon she enters into a volatile relationship with him and must decide whether to continue with Billy or return to her lover, a fellow journalist trying to track down the elusive Andy Warhol (Andy Warhol)..."

"This is a priceless package," said Richard Hell.

"The real burnt-out New York in January and February 1978, the Voidoids live at CBGB, Ed Lachman's cinematography, Elliot Goldenthal's sound track, Carole Bouquet's face, my lithe figure, Andy Warhol to break your heart, Luc Sante demonically extracting the ugly truths from me...unique. Spring for it."
