I suggest this thread be made into a general music documentaries discussion thread, rather than just a means for a link to be posted to specific documentaries.

I've watched a fair few documentaries about some artists I like (was just watching clips of an Alanis Morissette one earlier, might watch it properly later), it's always interesting to get some sort of insight into their music and thought processes etc.

I've seen the films made on Stone Roses and Pulp. I recommend them.


I've also seen the BBC1 documentary on Kate Bush which is great.

BBC4 on a Friday evening is the best place for these. There have been some excellent documentaries in this slot. Many of them are repeated fairly regularly, so there are plenty of chances to see them.

Artifact is a really good one. It's all about 30 Seconds to Mars and the problems surrounding the release of their album This is War. It's really illuminating about all the stuff that goes on in the record industry and I definitely recommend it. It's on Netflix too!

The classic music documentary is Gimme Shelter, a film that traces the Rolling Stones' tour of America, culminating in their infamous Altamont concert, where several attendees were killed. It's a powerful document of the late 60s counterculture era, made even more powerful by its intimate style and the power of the footage, which includes footage of one of the concert-goers being stabbed to death by a Hell's Angel.

Although the less said about another Rolling Stones documentary of the time, "Sympathy of The Devil" directed by Jean-Luc Godard, the better.
