Trivia

Contributor turned cinematographer Vincent Moon became involved with the film by sending an amateur recording of his first ATP weekend into Warp. Warp saw his footage and contacted him immediately, inviting him to come back to future festivals. Since then, Vincent has only missed two ATP events and has become highly acclaimed for his Take Away Shows, shooting bands performing tracks in unusual locations. See more »

visceral and kinetic
17 November 2009 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

this film is visceral and kinetic. one of the more potent music films i've seen. warning: this is not a strictly narrative film about the history of the festival - it's a post punk collage of some of the best alt. rock moments from ATPs last 10 years, made from footage shot and contributed by the fans and musicians at the festivals on video cameras, mobile phone, super 8s etc but it comes together in a way that makes it greater than the sum of it's parts. kudos to the way it was made. nick cave/grinderman, battles, akron family, portishead, the octopus project, grizzly bear and lightning bolt and stand out moments, and i'm sure i spotted aphex twin in there but didn't see him credited. patti smith closes the film with a killer performance.
