Blood and Ink Dudes and Needle Chicks Reflect
2 June 2019 | by terraplanetomSee all my reviews

A terrific documentary about the San Diego punk scene and one of its founders, Mad Marc Rude: Blood, Ink & Needles (2014) follows the exploits of a punk original, Marc Rude, who arrives from NYC and LA to start up the punk scene in late '70s San Diego. Rude was more of a promoter and sometimes a brawler that the younger punks of both sexes love to remember in their many interviews. Rude could also draw so he has left behind some wonderful punk album covers, club flyers and other promotional materials that often took him hours to ink. So, the title of the film says it all: the blood being the legendary fights, the ink being his weapon of choice in art and sadly the needles that would become his drug of choice in life. Throughout, Rude seems like a bad ass older brother that's worshipped by these younger punks and it's their recollections that make this documentary a sort of Citizen Kane of punk documentaries. For Marc Rude was much loved, feared and respected all at once---a worthy figure in the punk movement.
