This Week at the Cocteau

A  cool new documentary opening tonight at the Cocteau: THE WRECKING CREW.



Now that's MY kind of music.

See you at the movies.

LATER:  Just got back from THE WRECKING CREW.  Great, just great.  Made me want to put on my old albums.

Say what you want, old codgers from the Greatest Gen.  Say what you want, Generation Xers and Millenials.  The truth cannot be denied.  Us Boomers had the best music.

The Wrecking Crew? Didn't they play on all those Nazgul records?

Agreed
True beyond dispute. Two recent songs that sound like they're from the 60s or 70s (and are great) are Mykonos by Fleet Foxes and F**k You by Cee Lo Green. The latter is the most honest song ever written, and in that sense maybe the best.

We boomers did have some great music, I gotta admit.

And in the Battle Royale for generational music dominance, we have a dark horse victory as the Lost Generation sweeps in with 'How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm?'

Or maybe the musical catalog of Lead Belly.

Regardless, no one saw that one coming, I bet.

*goes to listen to 'In the Pines' and 'Goodnight Irene'*

And the beat goes on...
The best part of this story to me is that this movie has had two lives, one as a film festival circuit darling, and now, 6 years later as a commercial film. It was shown all over the world in 2008, but in order to play in commercial theatres, they had to get funding to clear all the music licensing. Thanks to all those music and film buffs who donated money and contributed to the kickstarter campaign, we get to see this great story behind the scenes.

"30 Feet from Stardom"
I'll be curious to see this, hopefully it'll make it over to Germany.

George, have you seen 30 FEET FROM STARDOM, about the backup singers? If so, is this a counterpoint or a compliment to that?

I'll stack my era's music against anything
Particularly The Coup, the Hold Steady, The Dismemberment Plan, Sleater-Kinney and Superchunk.

And the 60s had no death metal and therefore objectively can't be the best era of music.

I LOVE Carol Kaye. I can't wait to see it.
