Well-made documentary...
25 July 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Had not been for video website Youtube, danish singer/songwriter Tommy Seebach might been only known in his homecountry Denmark. On Youtube there are some videos featuring his music and performances but the most famous(or rather infamous)is Seebachs funky disco cover of the old instrumental classic "Apache"(Apache was first released by the British group The Shadows in 1960).

But in Seebachs hands it becomes a disco song featuring Seebach himself dressed up in yellow colored western outfit, sporting a huge mullet, and a mustache bigger then 1970's pornstar Harry Reems. And with a smile bigger then any actor in a toothpaste commercial.

The video becomes funnier after that, but I'm not going to spoil the fun...

But who was Tommy Seebach?

Born in Denmark, he quickly became interested in music and started playing in bands in 1960's. When he st-rated going solo in 1970's he would become one of the most beloved musical solo acts in Denmark during the 1970's-80's.

But what happens to an artist when he stops being trendy?

And how to handle a setback in one's career?

These and others questions is discussed in this documentary and more troublesome aspects of Seebachs life that would become more and more tragic as time went on.

There are some great moments, and sad moments when his family, especially his children tells his life story. Seebach comes across a nice guy who unfortunately went out of fashion.

Luckily he has regained some fame (even though some of it, is in tongue in cheek) mainly thanks to his cover of "Apache". And the fact that his son Rasmus Seebach makes music, but a different style of music.

So anyone interested in the strange, but happy man that made the funky disco version of apache and wants to know more, this is a perfect film to start with.
