Huge thanks to Paul Redhead for flagging up this gem of a vintage documentary – All Dressed Up and Going Nowhere.
Was going to stick this in events, but it probably merits a mention in the main section of the site. The Wheel Northern Soul documentary screening, that is.
If you haven’t got round to buying the book (or haven’t had time to read it), you can get an insight into the life of legendary mod DJ Roger Eagle on the radio soon, courtesy of Roger, The Eagle Has Landed.
The BBC will never make a documentary about The Action. To be honest, with two members sadly no longer with us, they’ve missed their chance anyway. But back in 2000, someone did – it was called In The Lap Of The Mods.
If you are in the UK – and a fan of The Who – you might want to stay in or set record for Quadrophenia Night on BBC 4, a night of programmes themed around the album and screening on 29th June 2012.
According to the particularly stern introduction, Bailey on Warhol is ‘an attempt to capture the spirit of Warhol using some of the techniques he has pioneered and several stills of his most famous work.’ Pretty good summing up I’d say.
If you are a fan of Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 swinging London flick Blow-Up, you might well like this Blow-Up film location documentary.
It’s never a good sign when a DVD has the wrong spelling(s) of some of its contributors on the sleeve. Even worse when it kicks off to a ‘lift music’ version of a Who song. Thankfully The Who, The Mods and the Quadrophenia Connection does get better.
