Rather than go on and on I watch this every day at the moment and have done for a month.
23 June 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Rather than go on and on I watch this every day at the moment and have done for about a month. If you like JD you will like the doco. I usually put this on because I have only owned the album "Substance" which is a collection of JD not an actual album. I put the doco on, usually after and listen to it like music with all the stories and performances. I love it. Their music was so modern it stands up to the test of time. The doco itself is a well put together, linear story told by surviving band members, all those people you remember from "24 Hour Part People" and more. get it and watch it more than once because there is a lot in there. Top marks.
