Dead Boys, speaker salesmen

A 1977 performance by the Dead Boys at CBGBs is being used as the cornerstone of a new commercial spot for Sonos wireless speakers. It’s a short clip of “Sonic Reducer” taken from footage filmed for CBS’s 60 Minutes in the hey-day of punk. The show was later released on DVD as Live at CBGB’s 1977.

    I thought I was dreaming! What in the world is going on with all the Stiv-related stuff everywhere I turn! I’m positively giddy with all this and wish like crazy he was alive to see all this! Also love the fact that the footage they’re using is from the same show I was at (October 2nd 1977), also the first time I saw the Dead Boys and the first time I went to CBGB’s….a lot of my firsts seem to revolve around Stiv and company ūüėČ
