Undersung Dutch punks PANIC are celebrated in a new documentary.
Jimmy Is Punk - The Story Of Panic, by filmmaker Duco Donk, was shortlisted for the Best Music Documentary prize at the 2020 Raindance festival. The film is now set to stream exclusively on Doc'n Roll TV.
Formed in Amsterdam in 1976, Panic burned brightly but briefly for just two years, releasing a solitary album 13 in 1977. Known for their chaotic performances, Jimmy Is Punk tells the band's story, with the help of a live concert film shot on 16mm and Super 8 analogue film, at a gig in the city of Gouda. The documentary goes on to recount the band's mission to New York to play the legendary CBGB's club.
Jimmy Is Punk will be available to stream here from Wednesday 30 March.
