"Blood and Steel: Cedar Crest Country Club" tells the story of the East Coast skateboarding mecca of the late 80's - The Crest. It was a steel monolith of a ramp, tucked away in the countryside close to the nation's Capital. Legendary bands and skaters from around the world came to celebrate the scene and push the limits, taking advantage of the freedom that brought skateboarding, punk rock and art together during a time of social disenfranchisement and uncertainty. The film features interviews with some heavy hitters such as Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat / Fugazi) and members of GWAR, as well as boasting a who's who of famous skaters including Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Rob Mertz, Fred Smith, Tony Magnusson, Allen Losi and many more.
SCREAM was formed in Northern Virginia in 1981 and are considered one of the benchmark bands in the history of the Washington, DC hardcore music movement. Scream ultimately merged the attributes of the movement, which were blinding speed, heavy political and social connotations in the lyrics, unpretentiousness of attitude, and shunning of commercialism. Scream became the first band on the Dischord label to release a whole album, Still Screaming, as opposed to EPs; and would go on to release three more full-length albums with the label. Their music is faithful to the roots of rock, but delves into other genres by employing sounds that predate the raunchiness of grunge, while saluting reggae and speed metal. Scream defies the classification of bands into certain types and considers what they play as simply 'music.'
