Punks And Rockers was founded by Aldo Erdic who began chronicling the Toronto punk scene in 1997 with a videozine series called F*U*TV.  Aldo continued to videotape and document the music scene into the 2000s and 2010s.  From 2004-10 he teamed up with Nick Cushing to form ToBeScene Productions and produced a few experimental films.  In 2010 Aldo directed “cira 1977: The Diodes”, a documentary short about one of Toronto’s first punk bands, which premiered at the 2010 NxNE Film Festival. In 2012 Punks And Rockers completed a concert video for Lydia Lunch released on DVD by LUFF Undertainment. As second unit director, Aldo also contributed some footage and editing to “The Last Pogo Jumps Again”, a feature length documentary about the 1977-80 Toronto punk scene directed by Colin Brunton and Kire Paputts and released in 2013.  Since 2012 Punks And Rockers has been filming live band performances at CIUT 89.5 FM “Equalizing X Distortion” program, a University of Toronto radio show documenting the city’s punk and hardcore scene.
