THE BLACK FLAG TOUR MACHINE GRINDS TO A HALT IN ‘REALITY 86’D’

THE BLACK FLAG TOUR MACHINE GRINDS TO A HALT IN ‘REALITY 86’D’.

To support what would prove to be its last studio album In My Head, Black Flag did a full national tour in the autumn of 1985 and then basically repeated the process in the first half of 1986. For that second go-round—Black Flag’s last tour—they were joined by Painted Willie and Greg Ginn’s new side project Gone, which featured future Rollins Band members Sim Cain and Andrew Weiss.

The drummer for Painted Willie was named David Markey, one of the founders of the punk zine We Got Power! and he took along a video recorder and took a copious amount of footage during the several months.

The result of Markey’s filming was an hour-long movie called Reality 86’d.
