Circle Jerks

My Career As A Jerk

Released on December 11, 2012


$14.00
Buy

From the beginning, LA punk band the Circle Jerks were rooted in controversy. Formed by ex members of Black Flag and Red Cross (now Redd Kross) in late 1979, the band came to encapsulate the image, sound and energy of California Hardcore Punk. Filmmaker David Markey (1991: The Year Punk Broke, The Slog Movie) mixes in-depth interviews, rare live footage and historical perspective to illustrate the story of one of the most influential bands in the American underground. My Career as a Jerk follows the band from their early days and classic debut to navigating the independent label and touring scene of the 80s to the addictions, fights and injuries that forced their break up. Of course the story doesn't quite end there.

My Career as A Jerk was a pretty decent viewing. This documentary covers Keith Morris in Black Flag and Greg Hetson in Redd Kross (or Red Cross) till it goes to Keith forming OFF! and Greg in Bad Religious. While the movie may seem dry and the topic of the history of the Circle Jerks rather uninteresting, it's still a pretty good showing of punk rock through the 80s and 90s. Some stand out people in the movie were Lucky Lehrer and Earl Liberty being interviewed and talking of their experience with the Jerks. Overall, I would only recommend this movie to Hardcore punk fans or Keith Morris fans. This movie is a great since it's not like most punk documentaries since My Career as a Jerk doesn't shove the term "anarchy" in it and talks about the roots of Keith Morris.
