"Pike has issued a DVD of his father's "crash action featurette" DEMO DERBY, filmed in Boston in 1963 and screened in theaters nationwide the following year s the opening feature for A Hard Day's Night. "FIlmed in New England, USA," it's a 30 minute documentary about Boston's demolition derby scene--its drivers, cars and fans--with a terrific rockin' title number by Travis Pike and Arthur Korb, and performed by The Rondels. Bonus features include a 10-minute interview with Pike's father about the making of the film, as well as the original theatrical trailer." (MS)

DEMO DERBY was an incredibly successful theatrical documentary, but lost in the thousands of best selling titles featuring well-known stars, offered on the AMAZON website. Our brilliant, technically ground-breaking short just never got the attention it deserved. I don't know how many (or how few), copies we actually sold, but in all the time we were on Amazon, we only received two customer reviews--both FIVE STARS and apparently submitted from fans with specific local interest in the goings-on at Norwood Arena. The most recent is on top, and was posted later than the Ugly Things magazine review posted above. They're included below in the hope that they might inspire some sales, and we may yet get this incredible jalopy back on the road!

"What a fun film, especially since my father-in-law and mother-in-law are in it! They were both in High School at the time. Thanks for making this film available. It's so cool to see what Demo Derbies were like back then."

"My first exposure to auto racing came in the mid-fifties at Norwood Arena. Demo Derby brought back memories of that as well as the times I followed the career of Don McTavish when he appeared on televised figure eight demo derby races from Islip Arena. I also found a connection to the artists providing the soundtrack. I was a high-school classmate of some of the members of The Rondels. The movie was fun to watch and provides a nice glimpse into a bygone era of American culture."
