1 hour until next [last ?] repeat.


From the bits i watched, of this relatively unknown longtime shelved
obscure music documentary,
until i left it recording and went to bed;

its a fascinating unruly jumble of musician interviews and far out self indulgent hippy bollox
about youth counter culture in 1970...


definitely worth a watch.

barely any info available on google..

IMDB credits - Writer: Geoffrey Cannon,.



seems it was first shown on Sky back in April;

"'London Rock' is a fascinating documentary that until only a few years ago was presumed wiped or missing. However, we can reveal that the hour long film exists and is due to be broadcast for the first time in 40 years...

Many of the new sounds of the 70s looked to the past for inspiration. Kenny Jones admits the Faces focused a lot on "where we grew up and used to play on bombsites," others looked even further back, drawing inspiration from mythology, legend and traditional songs.

Following artists including T-Rex, the Faces, Fairport Convention and Matthew's Southern Comfort, London Rock examines the personal nature of putting down a track. Charting a musical journey from the dawn solstice ceremony at Stonehenge, through lazy afternoons writing lyrics in the open air, to city life in Portobello Road, and the spirit of a sleepless music festival in Bath, it provides an insight into the new sounds that emerged in the Seventies, while examining the philosophy of its young musicians and their early thoughts on music and stardom.

With additional music by The Who, King Crimson, Marc Bolan, Traffic and Jethro Tull, the musicians involved explain the influences they explored in their work."



i'll watch my recording properly after the mrs goes to bed...

From today's perspective, it does seem embarrassing pretentiousness, and yet would so much air time be devoted to existential questions in ANY programme on air today; I think not, especially since SOUTH BANK SHOW finished. And furthermore, they were in their youth.
What have we today ? " I know I can double your investment, Sir Alan" or " Where's the f........
hollandaise ?"
