I have been hungry for music docs lately. But I want good ones. Does anybody have any suggestions? I watched Fearless Freaks (Flaming Lips) and was pretty severely disappointed by how lame it was. It was mostly just Wanye talking a bunch of standard Wayne shit. I want real stories. Documentaries of "scenes" are also welcome, but don't mention Hype!.

Thanks!

By the way, i'm trying to get my hands on music doc "We call it skweee", which seems like mission impossible. Any help is appreciated.

I saw that quite new Joy Division-document last autumn and I really liked it. Also Stones Exile-document was quite interesting, but not very serious. Stones Shine a light is also worth of seeing, on the other hand very sad to watch because Richards seemed to be very demented in it (maybe heīs got some new medicine because he played so well in new Tom Waits-album). And not-serious-"documents" Spinal Tap movie is just very great!

I just remembered that 24 hour party people is very great, not full serious made "documentary"-film about Tony Wilson, who was one of the factory records founders. Only thing I donīt like in that movie is the guy, who acts Ian Curtis.

I saw 1987 "It was twenty years ago today"-document about hippie movement in 1967 on the television. That was very interesting, but I donīt know is it available anywhere.

The Cure Staring at the sea is a video collection, but kind of document about the bands development from 1979 to 1984. And there is also some material between the videos.

By the way, when Finnish television showed it, there was a big storm in the south Finland. My friend has programmed it to record into his digibox and he was afraid the storm caused that recording unsucceed. But it didnīt.

ANVIL is a lovely story about a shitty metal band twenty years past their prime.

The music sucks, but the story is touching.

are there more than 2? Too bad the first one is unavailable.

The Kids Are Alright with the Who gets my vote.

Those Minuteman and Mission of Burma videos were big let downs for me.

A Bookshelf In The Sky is a neat doc on John Zorn
Also if you can find We Don't Care About Music Anyway it's a neat little performance/doc on the japanese experimental scene.

Yep, Decline Part 3 isn't so much about music though. Though it does have a handful of shitty neo-hardcore pseudo political punk bands in it. It's really more about squatters and the kids in LA being homeless. Alot of the scenes are of teenagers hanging out on corners pandering for money. It's pretty depressing to be sure.

I'm not even that sure where you would find it. I watched it on google videos or whatever a few years ago. I saw it was on youtube, but it's got that copyright infringement thing on it. Oh well, its easily the worst of the three.
