I'd firstly like to say, this isn't just about me, its been a team effort, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those who've supported me, those slogging it out, putting in the big ones behind the scenes, those nameless ones... this is for you too!

I had a speech prepared, but I'm too overcome at the moment. Time that we shed a tear, together!

Congratulations to Ken Loach for winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes for "I, Daniel Blake". The film shows the damage the so-called 'austerity' measures have wreaked in the UK post GFC.

Dispatches sounds like a good book too.

Thanks turkey. It's nice to know at least a few other people enjoyed Inherent Vice. It was always going to be a stretch for anyone who hadn't read the book. I suppose if you were going to try and film Pynchon that was the best option though I have always thought someone should give Gravity's Rainbow a shot though the moment has probably passed now.

^^ Great doco. The liner notes to 'Skinhead Revolt' also addresses the roots of the movement, and the music is a fantastic mix of white boy reggae, black artists, and dancehall moonstomping. It's a VA album but a lot of songs are hard to find elsewhere.

Lately I've been unable to sleep due to the relentless humidity so the wee hours have been spent watching (or rewatching) music docos.

Last night, End Of The Century. The film that fractured the myth of the Ramones brotherhood showing it as little more than a caricature. It's sober viewing for hardcore fans but you always kinda suspect it was manufactured - more a brand than a band. Those first three albums but...

Dig! Discredited by the Dandy Warhols and Brian Jonestown Massacre when it came out, and yet it's narrated by Courtney Taylor? A great study in creativity and social dynamics; two bands seek each out over shared influences, but support turns sour when one band, the less talented one, gets popular while the other sinks under the rampant ego of the leader. Is there ever a safe (read: non self-destructive) path to critical acclaim?

Some Kind Of Monster. Perhaps the best music doco ever, but I doubt Metallica fans would agree as it makes the band look like emotionally stunted fools. Fantastic, cringeworthy, enthralling viewing.

Rudeboy. The cinema verite take on London 1977. The filmmakers caught so many of the big moments of the era while shooting this odd film about a deadbeat attracted to the new sounds of punk. He becomes a roadie to The Clash, and the aforementioned 'moments' often occur backstage, and even on stage, during the Clash's meteoric rise. It's a doco but there's no 'looking back', it's all happening in front of the camera.

Searching for Sugarman. 'Cold Fact' released 1970 was one of my fave albums of the 1990s, so I appreciate the delayed fame that this doco chronicles. I first heard Sixto Rodriguez's debut from a mate's Dad who was South African, and in 1990 I took my fist trip to Cactus where a fellow camper, also a South African, delighted over it, singing each song 'round the campfire. I didn't realise the SA connection till I saw this film. Modern story telling turns this film into a charm.

Some good choices there, Stu-bags.

The Rodriguez yarn definitely resonated. Except my Saffa experience happened at the Bluff. For years it was a catchphrase of ours: "What? You guys have never heard of Rodreeegissss?" (in heavy Afrikaaaans accent). Almost put me off the bloke.

Almost. (Well, it is a bit cod-Dylan, ain't it?)

Anyways, it's a pretty cool doco.

Maybe, 'cos I just saw The Specials and am about to see Madness, I'm reminded of a few.

dance craze is so good! bad manners look like a lot of fun to see live, as do the bodysnatchers.

i found the ramones doco so depressing...i had an image of then as "us against the world", only to find out they hated the shit out of each other. johnny is such a dick! but we all knew that. i hope you;re right that it doesn't represent the reality.

sugarman is a little misleading...he didn't disappear. the guy was a star in australia. midnight oil supported him when he played here..i think twice. the song 'sugarman' was a radio hit. parties in the 70s -- it was either santana or "cold hard fact" on the record player. but i guess it does tell the south african experience and perception.

the humidty has dropped off a bit, but if you have trouble sleeping...
there are some really good music docos on netflix ..'muscle shoals' (about the recordin studio) and 'the wrecking crew'..about the session musicans that made pretty much every hit song. it's mindblowing hopw many brilliant songs they made.
