Lead singers, you can't have a band without them but they sure do love that spotlight. In the past few months a few filmmakers have helped to maximize and even re-light that spotlight for some of musics most inspiring & interesting.
We at the forum have seen a fair few of these flicks and thought we would have a little go at reviewing them for your enjoyment. Over the next few days we will be posting the remainder of the reviews, so watch out now!
Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten
Basics: "The Only British Band That Matters" and their no rules all out crazy front man. Mix some old footage with current interviews and bosh you have a pretty informative and captivating film.
Best Bit: A few choice words for a jam packed New York audience right after Grandmaster Flash had opened for them. Apparently 1980's punks were not ready for what was brewing across the river in Brooklyn, Joe had other magnificent ideas.
Bit Too Much: Apparently Joe really loves campfires and so do his friends and family. Get the marshmallows and tent out because by the end of this film you will want to be camping around a fire with your mates.
Next Up: Control
Till the next time.
