VU /NY Dolls/GBGB documentary on yourtube

Post by iaredatsun » 31 Mar 2014 17:05

Can't vouch for any of it as I haven't watched it, yet. Appears to be a rip from this 3 hour DVD. I meant 'CBGB', of course.

http://www.chromedreams.co.uk/punk-revo ... -834-p.asp.

Promises to be the first of two youtube installments.

Blurb:
This documentary film, clocking in at over 3 hours, traces the entire history of New York's punk movement; the VU years, the Warhol influence, the Dolls reign, and the handover of power to the bands who, despite their differences in sound, shared the sensibilities and attitude introduced to the city's musical landscape by Warhol and the Velvets a decade before. These were the groups and musicians who claimed the lower east side of the city as their playground and the former bluegrass club CBGBs as their HQ.

Thanks for posting this. Are there any other good VU documentaries out there? I can only think of Nico/Icon, or maybe i missed a thread about this?

Nico Icon is on Youtube - it has subtitles, but Italian isn't included

There is also the Spanish doc. The Arsenal Show but it isn't up on Youtube. Maybe I can correct that at a later date. There is also a quick 30 minute doc called Velvet Underground: Music Mavericks from the Ovation Channel. Nothing new but it exists none the less. I have it on my DVR saved, but don't know how to copy from DVR except via video cam.
