Punk Rock in Israel

Check out these fascinating video clips from the American PBS network’s Frontline documentary series called Punk Rock in the Holy Land put together by filmmaker Liz Nord. See, television can be good sometimes! An interesting perspective on a part of the world where music is not necessarily the first thing the news networks cover on a nightly basis. And for something completely different, the word on the Kibbutz is that both the Rolling Stones and the Scorpions will be coming to Israel this year so Israelis will be getting a chance to savor all kinds of cool stuff which will hopefully influence more local rock and roll. By the way, If you are looking for a taste of Israeli rock and roll check out the excellent RockFour.
UPDATE! And now it has been announced that Megadeth are coming to Israel as well. I am not naive to think that rock and roll can solve all the regions problems but it couldn’t hurt!
Later.
