Watched this yesterday. OMG. Had no idea.
And it asks a few great questions including: besides money, what was the point of this? These kids had no big movement to unify them, so they came together in confusion and - eventually - chaos.
Also, they suggest that the death of Cobain and Nirvana coupled with their alliance with MTV was the event that moved popular music to a darker, angrier place.

Well, bring it on! 

 
Not to jack the thread too far, I had a friend who used to make fun of those shoes when I wore them, calling them clown shoes, etc. Anyhow I sculpted and painted them up like the pic shows and gave them to her on her birthday and she thought I was mocking her which in a way I guess I was but it wasn't an attack or anything. More a gag gift. She made me take them back lol. I tried to convince her how cute a flowering vine would be but she was shut down. I'm not very good with drama. Oh well.
Neither side learned anything in the process...

Lol. Are you referring to my Avatar? Those are some old used-to-be tan pointy toed Hush Puppies I wore completely out but loved so even though they were suede
I had some blue stain left over from a project and doused them in it. I wear them on blues night at the open mic. Not sure if they make me play any better but I love to stretch a tonal yarn when I can. True story all around...

Shine on you crazy diamond reminded me..... Thanks for the link. 

It took me a few days to make it through, but an interesting journey through their/his music.  The overriding impression, which was shared by my wife during her 10 mins of watching...What a totally normal guy, with a nice, comfortable (but not crazy) life.

The houseboat studio was cool.  I couldn't help but wonder if the neighbors were familiar with the albums before they were released.  It also seemed a lot bigger on the inside than it should have...good camera lenses?

It's a fine documentary. He is an amazing human. Interesting his honesty about his feelings for his Mother. Forgiveness can be pretty complicated but it is certainly intrinsic to all our lives. Perhaps he forgives his Mother for what he lacked as a child. Perhaps his gift has been working that out all along...

Now Sparks Can Confuse Fans on the Big Screen
The musical brothers Ron and Russell Mael are known for catchy songs and perplexing shifts. But they longed to be in films. This summer they’re part of two.
Sparks is a band unlike any other. Ron and Russell Mael — the brothers who have made up the eccentric, unclassifiable duo for more than 50 years — have played a pivotal, if unheralded, role in multiple musical movements, from glam rock to new wave to synth-pop.

Their witty, hyper-literate songs, along with the singer Russell’s good looks and keyboardist Ron’s deadpan, glowering stage presence, made Sparks icons of a sort in Europe, but never more than a cult band in the United States. With 25 albums to their name, they have often followed up their biggest moments with radical shifts in style that thrilled loyal fans but baffled more casual listeners.

In 2017, the music-obsessed director Edgar Wright, fresh off the success of “Baby Driver,” went to see Sparks perform in Los Angeles. For years, he had been telling his friends that someone needed to make a documentary about the group, and as he looked at the audience, which ranged from teenagers to graying 60-somethings, and the weird mix of celebrities in attendance, he insistently repeated the idea to his friend, the filmmaker Phil Lord — who told him to make the movie himself.

Steely Dan - Aja

Steely Dan: Aja
is an excellent, full-hour song-by-song study by British documentary series Classic Albums with new, live-in-studio versions of songs from the album. Steely Dan's 1977 sixth studio album Aja is considered by many as one of, if not the greatest album of all-time.
 
I am a Classic Albums™ junkie; I have seen just about all of them.  AXS plays all of these British music documentaries and I say bring it on.  Yea Aja's alright, if you consider one of the best albums of all time alright; then yea.

Found this out of the blue; no promotion; comments disabled.   There are many artist from what I consider the Golden Age of all types of music 1960-circa 80 who I have rediscovered sometimes after 3 or 4 trips around so to speak and some that I completely got wrong based on limited knowledge.  The Kinks are one such band:
