The Bee Gees one is very good. Covers their entire career, which is nice. Decent talking heads, but it probably could've done without Justin Timberlake and one of the Jonas Brothers

No mention of In Bed With Chris Needham. Shocking.

Also: Heavy Metal Junior, which documents an early 00s teenage Glaswegian metal band and the singer's hilarious overbearing vocal coach dad.

Heh, I don't even like his music, apart from Jazz Fart, but I do find the man and his career fascinating

In Bed With Chris Needham is obviously the best rock-doc of all time, but Heavy Metal Junior is wonderful. Thank you for sharing that.

The dad is a phenomenal wanker.

EDIT: You can tell that the director is 'involved' though.

Sun Ra: A Joyful Noise (1980) by Robert Mugge

A sympathetic portrayal of the philosophy and music (in that order) of Sun Ra. Sun Ra believed that the future survival of the human race was dependent on things we were yet to discover - the unknown. So humanity should embrace the unknown. Likewise Sun Ra's musical path can be explained as an exploration of unknown realms in accordance with his philosophy, that looks both to the future and at the same time grounds itself in ancient roots and traditions. Are he and his band dressed as visitors from another planet or future, or are they from the mythical past; priests from ancient Egypt?

Some amazing performances from the band and Ra throughout as well as gaining a view of life within the band, some of whom are devoted to their work with Sun Ra and live as a community in the suburbs of Philadelphia in the house that is also their rehearsal space, as well as running a local shop.

...and the origin of lightning drum.

I enjoyed this last night, brought back some nice memories of my Dad's 50th birthday celebrations. Some cracking (although bizarrely edited in places) live footage.

Oh wow, thanks so much!

The dad cropped up in another BBC Scotland doc recently, being all loud.

Another thank you for the Hatred documentary upload. Lovely stuff, but it's mostly in the editing, of course. You can see where they've meddled with the timeline in some of the shots of the outdoors gig where the bass player who left appears to be back in the band again. Any road, the second bass audition was the hardest I've laughed in weeks.

Watched the doc about Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead that's on Netflix at the moment, entitled "The Other One".

I saw "I'm Now- The Mudhoney Story" last night and apart from the original bass player they all seem like lovely fellows.

Afterwards I typed "Music Documentary" into Amazon Prime and there's a whole lot of shit on there including this piece of business-

There is one guy who comments throughout the video on Lennon's life. Never heard of him. Don't waste your time. Or money.
