Interview blog excerpt from The Last Pogo written about Colin Brunton interviewing Paul Richmond who was in attendance at The Last Pogo as an audience member at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto Canada on December 1 1978

"The Pogo team visited Last Pogo audience member Paul Richmond tonight.....the thing that was cool was that the very spot the interview took place in — Paul’s apartment — was within 30 feet of where Last Pogo director Colin Brunton saw The Beatles in “A Hard Day’s Night” in 1964 when he was nine, when the building was another of Toronto’s grand old dames, The Vaughan Theatre. And even though Paul protested that he didn’t have anything to show us, we got good stuff: Paul’s grade ten review of attending a Diodes show in 1977 — and being appalled by the music and the audience."

Got my own IMDB page too just for being a part of this important, meaningful and entertaining documentary.

Picture My Face

Today I attended Colin Brunton and Kire Paputts World Premier of their monumental documentary, The Last Pogo Jumps Again! This documentary expertly concentrates on the Canadian Punk Rock music and culture in Toronto and Southern, Ontario, Canada, from 1976 to December 1, 1978.

The Last Pogo Jumps Again World Premiere was held at the TIFF Bell Lightbox March 23, 2013 as part of Canadian Music Week.

3hr 20min - Documentary - English

Director: Colin Brunton, Kire Paputts - Cast: Tibor Takács, Ron Mann, Cheetah Chrome, Bruce Pirrie, Nash the Slash, Anna Bourque, Joe Keithley, Evan Siegel, Frankie Venom, Bob Segarini

Not only did I watch and really enjoy, but I also am grateful to be included in this documentary (on screen) as a fan of the local music scene of the times.

The documentary begins with the story of The Ramones coming to Toronto in 1976. There was footage of The Ramones live on stage at The New Yorker on Yonge St. in Toronto, Canada. Unfortunately, there was no Ramones recorded music or live sound recordings to be heard. Never the less, The Ramones started it all!

Also included is an important direct reference to Lester Bangs towards the end of the documentary.

There is a connectivity that can not be denied in the history of the Toronto Punk Rock scene and New York City's Punk Rock influence.

Many Toronto bands performed at CBGB's in New York City during the mid to late 1970's.

The same can also be said for Toronto as a place for musicians from New York City's Punk Rock music scene to visit and perform.

In all this, I was also in attendance at The Last Pogo event that was put on by The 2 Gary's at The Horseshoe Tavern on December 1, 1978.

This documentary brought back memories of the times I spent watching many of the bands performing at various historic venues in Toronto during the late 1970's.

I also learned a great deal about the musicians and promoters of the time and their plight to keep the Toronto music scene fresh and vibrant.

Although I was very young at the time, the experience has always been present in the very core of my being.

If you would like the opportunity to also be privy to my past, I recommend you view the video of Teenage Head performing the only song they were allowed to play as the last band of the night at The Last Pogo at The Horseshoe Tavern, Toronto, Canada on December 1, 1978, that song is...Picture My Face

Footage from original documentary The Last Pogo a film by Colin Brunton.


I was there, and realized that something possibly undesirable was about to unfold. I left immediately as soon as the first sign of perceived trouble transpired... This video shows you where I was just over 34 years ago...and may bring you closer to knowing a bit about my past that influenced me to become the person I am today...

Thanks to Colin Brunton for having the foresight to capture on film, this important and vibrant time in musical history that has influenced generations of musicians world wide and shall continue to do so.


Best wishes to all in your continued endeavors to bring about awareness of important issues that effect us all.

Respectfully yours,

Paul Richmond
