Guided By Voices’ appearance on Austin City Limits was supposed to be the band’s big, nationally-broadcast fare-thee-well, shortly before they completed their final tour. Regardless, it’s a fine performance of a band at the top of its game, and there’s not a nostalgic moment to be had; it’s a vital, exciting performance from a band that still has a lot to give.
Texas guitarist Eric Johnson’s career was in an odd place in the 1980s; though a superbly talented musician with a Grammy nomination under his belt, he had difficulty finding a proper home for his music.

This concert, recorded in 1988, captures him in his prime, shortly before he scored a surprise commercial hit with his song, “Cliffs Of Dover.”

This short film captures The Melvins during their 2012 “51 shows in 51 days tour,” and is less a tour documentary than a collage that wonderfully captures the mindset of a band on the road with a lot of spare time on their hands. In other words: twisted, demented fun. In other words, The Melvins!
This 2015 biopic is a no-holds-barred look at one of the founding groups of modern rap music, and is easily one of the finest hip-hop biopics to date.
