A little short on context
28 December 2006 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

The Flatlanders were a group of young Lubbock musicians who came formed a band in the early 1970s. They made one record (not released until much later) and went their separate ways, but later become semi-famous, making their inadvertent supergroup a retrospective legend. 'Lubbock Lights' tells their story, and also that of a few other Lubbock musicians, although rather oddly makes almost no mention of their most famous forebear, Buddy Holly. There's also little old footage (I guess because the Flatlanders really were so obscure that no-one had filmed them) nor any serious attempt to put them into their musical context: it's not even mentioned that Butch Hancock, for example, was the principal songwriter of the group, nor is there any discussion of the musical saw played by Steve Wesson (though at least we get to see him play it). Still, for those who love the music, it's a welcome opportunity to see it on film. Those who don't might still be left wondering.
