PJ20 Discussion Thread
I'm totally biased, but I loved it. I was too young to understand the hype about them the first time around (born in '84). I first got into them when Yield was released; and although that album gets lots of flack... it's in my top 10 of all time.
In any case, I thought this doc was well done, showed the good and the bad (Singles Release Party) of a band that seem to continue to do their own thing. Lots of great gear... I'd love to have a rip through one of those savage amps! I wish there was a rig rundown. It was neat to see them as fans of other bands, and I didn't know about the relationship with Soundgarden in Seattle.
I took my girlfriend to see this in theatre when it came out, after we had seen the tour 2 weeks before. We had been both been fans in highschool, but she didn't really know anything about the history of the band. I knew a lot more, but nothing about the strain within the band at times, like after Roskilde, and when Eddie was driving himself to venues. Now we're married, and watched it again the other night, and she says this is one of the better ones that I've made her watch.
It's probably my 2nd favourite Rock-Doc of all time.
What did everyone else think about it?
