Stiv Bators was a punk pioneer, canonized by his exploits in life and untimely death.
Now his story is being told by in Stiv, No Compromise No Regrets, a long-awaited doc, that is both poignant and exhilarating. The film covers Stiv's formative years in Youngstown Ohio, before the Dead Boys and his time with projects such as The Stiv Bators Disconnected Band, The
Wanderers, Whores of Babylon feat. Johnny Thunders & Dee Dee Ramone, then onto The Lords of The New Church (IRS Records), through his last days in Paris. Complete with never released 8MM footage from private collections, a killer soundtrack, and accounts from the people who were with Stiv through various phases and projects of his life and career. Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Jimmy Zero (Dead Boys), Nick Turner & Dave Tregunna (Sham 69), Frank Secich (Blue Ash, Stiv Bators Band, Deadbeat Poets), Cynthia Ross (B-Girls) and many others have participated in telling Stiv's story. Stiv No Compromise, No Regrets is a brilliantly crafted film by Danny Garcia whose credits include The Rise and Fall of The Clash, Sad Vacation, the story of Sid and Nancy's last days and Looking For Johnny covering the late Johnny Thunders.
