forgive me if this online journal has covered this territory before but last night i went to the cinema to see dig!, the film about the dandy warhols and the brianjonestown massacre.

even though i'm no fan of either band (i own one BJM album and nothing by the dandy's) it's difficult to think of a better, if you will, rockumentary. friendship mutating into unhinged bitter rivalry, drugs, onstage scraps, genius, madness, self-destructiveness. it's got the lot in spades.

nobody gets out of this film looking particularly good.

highly recommended.

I must agree. I saw it a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed the career-suicide in instalments angle immenseley. Especially when they send the tambourine player to sign the contract with the record company.

Did they not have a drummer?
