Storyline

In 2001, a photo assistant named Alex Dezen asked a couple of friends to record a few songs with him. Shortly thereafter they would form the Brooklyn based rock band, The Damnwells. Two years later they had toured the country, opened for rock legends and had a song featured in a major motion picture. By 2004, they had signed a major record deal with Epic records (Sony/BMG). In March 2005, The Damnwells went into the studio to record their first professional album. For six months, The Damnwells immersed themselves in preproduction, recording and mixing. But as months passed, their release date was moved further and further away. In January of 2006, lead singer Alex Dezen received a call they never expected. The band was being released from their contract and the fate of the album was unknown. For the moment it would sit on a shelf at Epic records and collect dust. The Damnwells, who had previously recorded their albums in a storage space and their apartments, were not used to waiting. ... Written by Jennifer Grimm

Listen to their music first
15 November 2007 | by (Stratosphere) – See all my reviews

Does every rock band now think that having somebody shoot a bunch of video footage about their struggle for success think it's the way for an end run to success? And isn't anybody else tired of the same old rock whining? The Damnwells music is as lame as the Brian Jonestown Massacre's (though in a different style), but the BJM had some mildly entertaining hijinks in the overrated Dig (and that would have been only half as good if it weren't for the tambourine player, who was quite amusingly the band's real star). Golden Days is about one-tenth as interesting as Dig (naturally assumed to be an inspiration for this project). I suspect all the high ratings are from fans of the band: if you don't like their music and you've already seen a couple of docs about bands, there's not much here to enjoy.
