The Mott doc was on BBC4 last Friday loads of press in the weekend papers, pick of the day in the Guardian, Times, Sunday Times etc. Now available at a much lower price. One of the most important bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s!
The rock act that made a stray Bowie song into an anthem for a generation and beyond! A singer with recognisable hair and ever-present shades! Mott The Hoople are perhaps known to all music fans, but what of their story?
The Ballad of Mott the Hoople is a feature length documentary that tells the story of of one of England’s most cherished rock ‘n’ roll bands. The Ballad Of The Mott The Hoople is not only a fascinating documentary, whose cast are a testament to the music, it is also a heart warming saga of the ascendency and decline of a group who were ploughing a musical landscape across a period in cultural history that was generally breaking new ground. If anything will gain them the lasting respect they deserve it is this thoughtful, provoking and enjoyable film.
Made by the same team who put together the critically acclaimed films on Arthur Lee and Love as well as the more recent Mott The Hoople documentary. Mountain Picnic Blues is a documentary on The Charlatans' 1997 LP Tellin' Stories.
Featuring the hit singles "One To Another" and "North Country Boy", the LP was a number one hit and a creative high point for the band.
The record's creation however was overshadowed by the tragic death of keyboard player Rob Collins. The documentary features interviews with all band members and tells the story of the circumstances surrounding its recording and it's completion in the aftermath of Rob Collins' death.
The DVD also features the band playing the album live in its entirety, filmed this year at Glasgow Barrowlands, as part of the triumphant Tellin' Stories 15th anniversary concerts.
