The band grew up together and many of the members played music together from a young age. The band’s guitarist and song writer Wilko Johnson was a kinetic, charismatic on-stage presence. He’s great in the documentary. The band came to being as antidote the progressive, overly baroque rock of King Crimson, Yes and other similar bands.
The documentary is really well done and is engaging and entertaining. It’s helped by the fact that the band members are fun guys who are very down to earth. It documents the band, the place and the times with aplomb. Well worth a look.
