Max Creeps, the pioneering punk duo featuring the iconic P.C. Bullshit and Max Blastic, mark this week’s release of Nein (Velocity Records) with the Friday night debut (8 pm pst/11 pm est) of the “Max Creeps Night Flight Special.” Brooklyn Vegan has shared a trailer for the 30-minute documentary (watch here), which follows the band from their now legendary 1973 introduction at David Bowie’s Hammersmith Odeon gig through their recent break-up and onto the release of Nein.

“We LOVED Night Flight when we were in the BFC (Betty Ford Clinic),” explains Blastic. “It was really tough for us to find anything we liked there, the bar was basically NONEXISTENT, dinner was peas and carrots… but once a week we could tune in to Night Flight to keep in touch with some actual rock ’n’ roll. We’re very pleased that they have put us on their station. Really brings us back to those days at the BFC. Man – you think things SUCK now… well they DO, but they sure SUCKED back then too. More NIGHT FLIGHT and LESS of EVERYTHING ELSE.”

Viewable via the Night Flight Plus streaming channel, the “Max Creeps Night Flight Special” is hosted by the series original narrator, Pat Prescott, and features unseen clips, music videos and more from the enigmatic project. Max Creeps have also curated a marathon of cult films, retro TV and punk docs from the Night Flight Plus library that will be streaming all weekend long on the network’s 24/7 live TV channel, NFTV. Titles include Penelope Spheeris’ “Suburbia,” live performances from Iggy & The Stooges and Bad Brains, and everybody’s favorite clayboy: Gumby!

Bullshit and Blastic previously released a trio of songs and videos from the nine-song release, with “Hung Drawn and Quartered (1424)” featuring Dan Jones (“Secrets of Great British Castles,” “Britain’s Bloody Crown”) arriving last week. The pair previously released clips for “The Internet Killed Me” and “Burn It Down.”

About Max Creeps

After meeting side-stage at David Bowie’s 1973 final Ziggy Stardust show at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, PC Bullshit and Max Blastic masterminded the rise and fall of Max Creeps on a working cattle-boat back to Seattle, Washington. Early gigs at The Masque in Hollywood became things of legend in late 1975. MC were soon touted in Tinseltown by the likes of Pat Smear, Cheryl Tiegs, Paul Lynde, Charo, and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. The easy access to drugs and the partying high-life took its toll of both PC and Max, as they soon found themselves planted in the Betty Ford clinic after a taut misunderstanding with the L.A. City Council on just who’s city Los Angeles was. Thus began the long-standing dislike by Max Creeps, of all cities, big or small.

 

Following the lengthy stint in rehab, on release, the Creeps were astounded to find all of their music they played live at The Masque had been ripped off. Something that was now being called “punk rock,” had its clear roots in those early gigs. From the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Germs, into Devo and Wire, these albums that were direct rip offs of all of the Max Creeps’ songs. This has denied them hundreds of dollars in royalties… but not much more can be said about that here, as many lawsuits are pending.
