Quotes

Rob Tyner: I was watching TV the other night, and they had these guys from Indonesia, and
[the anthropologists]
Rob Tyner: said "You guys have a lot of parties and stuff; stay up all night and chew drugs, and dance on logs, and walk in the fire and do all this stuff, you know". And like, the guys said "Of course we have to have decent festivals! We do this so that our souls will be happy; so that our souls dont get mad at us, fly away to the gods and we'll die"

Well Done Documentary!
25 May 2005 | by klofkornSee all my reviews

This film represents the work of people who obviously both did their homework and then produced a fair representation of the career of the influential band, the MC5. In the space of two hours they provide substantial insight into the genesis, the career path, and the influence of the MC5. Anyone curious concerning the intersection of rock music and politics, or the evolution of "punk rock," or concerning the counter-culture movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s would be well advised to have a look at this film.

Those even more curious would be well advised to go have a look at the Labadie Collection at the University of Michigan and begin their own delvings into this historically significant era. There examine the collection of period publications like "The Ann Arbor Argus," "The Ann Arbor Sun," the papers of Lawerence Plamondon, and more that await serious exploration. Anyone curious about how that earlier anti-war movement progressed could begin the inquiry there.
