Did You Know?

Quotes:
Liam Gallagher:Didn't like music then. Just played football and come in late for me tea. Knocked on people's doors and run off. Ran through people's gardens and pinched things.
Interviewer:What sort of things would you pinch?
Liam Gallagher:Clothes off the washing line. If I thought they looked pretty cool, I thought, "I'll have that". Mountain bikes. Lawnmowers.
Interviewer:You used to pinch lawnmowers?
Liam Gallagher:Yeah. And sell 'em. For weed.

Very, very entertaining, 28 May 2007
Author: iplautus-1 from Canada

Hilarious is what this often is, and often enough to make it good. The Wikipedia article on it complains that Radiohead and the Verve aren't given much coverage, but really I don't think they had much to do with the aspects of Britpop that are dealt with in the film, indeed the aspects that make Britpop interesting to documentarians, and are therefore the reason this movie exists. Had they been interviewed, I can't imagine Thom Yorke or Richard Ashcroft having much to say about the subject beyond "We never really considered ourselves part of Britpop, and I don't think many other people did either," which would be pretty much right. What's good in this movie? Noel Gallagher sitting on a throne talking about being working class; Jarvis Cocker doing an imitation of a person on cocaine; Liam Gallagher responding to questions about his supposed androgyny ("What, so I'm a bird?") Hilarious.
