Long Hot Summers: The Story of The Style Council is on Sky Arts. Gonna watch this later. 

I watched that the other day. Enjoyable bit of nostalgia with footage from the 80s. Live Aid. Top of the Pops etc. Not everyone’s cup of tea but I think the Style Council had quite a few good tunes and still listen to them now and again. Some shite ones as well mind.

When Bob Marley Came to Britain 

 

Good little doc about Marley & the Wailers and the influence they had on British music (and how Britain became their launch pad to the world).

I see that, it might be good. 

There's another on later about Laurel Canyon which I assume is about the music scene there, David Crosby will probably be in that too. 

I've seen the 3 part Laurel Canyon, fantastic doc.

The Defiant Ones. 
 

Netflix doc about the rise of Dr Dre and how he got together with Jimmy Iovine down the line.


Brilliant

Sky arts tonight, decent doc about David Crosby.

Just watched that. It's really sad to see the way relationships with CSNY are so irreparably fucked after all this time.  (Also horrible to hear that dogshit version of Silent Night as the last ever CSN live performance. )

Silent Night was ghastly but yes it was a bit sad about their relationships, Neil Young won't have nothing to do with him he said. 

He always struck me as a bit of an arsehole, well he said it himself, but he came across as alright, an age thing maybe? 

They done some boss music though so there's always that.

I went to the doctor and asked if he could give me something for a creaky hip joint.

He gave me two tickets to Ronnie Scott's.

Have you seen that Hip Joint in the original DOA with Edmund O'Brian? Get with it.

I'd back the calls for the Laurel Canyon doc, it's ace. The first part in particular. However, my interest did begin to wane when The Eagles turned up.

Perfect, didn’t even know there was one.


That’s going on later!

 

That place is special to me and my family. I’ve gigged there a number of times and bloody love it but my uncle was the house drummer at Ronnies for years, close mates with Ronnie..etc and is full of tales about backing some/hanging with of the biggest names in jazz.
 

He’ll just casually drop into a conversation things like;

 

“I was talking to Miles once and he said....etc” and you’ll have to ask who and he just comes out with “Oh Miles Davis” as if he’s the guy down the street. 
 

or things like

 

”I had breakfast with Buddy in New York once and...”

 

“Buddy Who?”

 

”Oh, Buddy Rich”

 

I’ll see if he makes any of the footage. He needs to write a book.  

Nice one for the heads up, Mook.

I watched the Ronnie Scott's program, I am old enough to have been there a few times when he was still with us, although I never saw him play. The program is excellent, perhaps a bit longer than it needed to be, a bit like jazz itself for me.

There were a few drummers on there who looked like they might be the house drummer so he may be in there with a bit of luck.

 

I absolutely loved the programme, it was really well put together & tugged at the heart strings at times. I'll be watching it again soon.

 

I've only been to the club once & was blown away by it, can't wait to head down again.

I messaged him should he not have heard anything and his response was;

 

“Watched the Scott programme last night,well put together looks like an American production,lots of research”

 

Hahaha, that was it. Not giving me much to go off. I’ll see if he’s in it later.

 

Nice one again and can’t wait to head back there again when this is all over.
 

Great venue.

The Go-Go's on Sky Arts at the moment is pretty good and because it's all women is probably unlike most things you'll have seen before.  It's just won The Critics Choice Award for best music documentary.
