Title: The Who
Post by: Fred21 on October 07, 2008, 02:07:55 PM
Keith Moon's finnest hour captured on DVD 

For fans of The Who the world over, the date December 15th 1977 holds a special place in their hearts, that day The Gaumont State Theatre in Kilburn was the scene of the second to last public performance of the band with legendary drummer Keith Moon.

The band would perform together one more time a year later on a soundstage but for many this was the last real performance. Until now only short excerpts of this blistering show have ever been seen, but for years Who fans, The Whooligans, have been petitioning the band for a full release of this remarkable event in the bands history.

Maximum R&B: The Birth of The Who

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05zq4m1

This year The Who celebrate the 50th anniversary of their first UK single 'I Can't Explain' and their seminal track 'My Generation' (as well as their debut album) and mark it with the release of career spanning box set, a huge show in Hyde Park in July and headline slot at Glastonbury.

To recognise this momentous year, this new documentary sees guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend and lead singer Roger Daltrey look back to the very start of the band. Recalling how The Who's obsession with the music of Chicago, Memphis and Mississippi shaped their songwriting and explaining how these distinctively American songs, often born of social unrest and racial segregation, had parallels in the lives of post-war urban British kids, and in the case of The Who, earned them the now-legendary description 'Maximum R&B'

Hosted by Matt Everitt and featuring exclusive contributions from Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Graham Coxon from Blur, Wilko Johnson, Supergrass' Gaz Combes, Mark King from Level 42, Richard Barnes, Kaiser Chief Ricky Wilson, Johnny Marr and Sir Paul McCartney plus exclusive previously unreleased music from the band live in 1964.

You can hear an extended two-part series on BBC Radio 6 Music.

Yeah - because they didn't think of it I wonder?

It will probably be disappointing, but I dare say I'll watch it at some stage.

So... It's, let's get this right, it's NOT a sequel, it's just inspired by "Quadrophenia" and happens to have several of the original film's cast and is also set against the background of Mod culture:

Oh, yeah - a sequel!

Quote
The massive question was: Who are we? What is our function? What is our worth? Are we disenfranchised, or are we able to take society over and guide it? Are we against the establishment? Are we being used by it? Are we artists, or are we entertainers?

Is there an honest reading other than a pessimistís for what the answers to most of those questions ended up being?
I think so. Rock íní roll was a celebration of congregation. A celebration of irresponsibility. But we donít have the brains to answer the question of what it was that rock íní roll tried to start and has failed to finish. Neither do our journalistic colleagues, no matter how smart they think they are. Greil Marcus is not going to write the book that has the answer. Heís not going to come up with the goods. For Godís sake, neither could the Rolling Stones or the Who. Thatís not going to happen. That postwar vacuum that we tried to fill ó we did fill it for a while, but then we realized it was fizzling out. The art proposed the questions without offering solutions. So what the Who are doing at the moment ó weíve made a good album. I hope itíll do O.K. I donít need it. Nobody needs it. ...

How does nostalgia ó your own and your fansí ó affect the criteria for what makes a good Who concert in 2019? That criteria must be different than it was in 1969.
Now I perform the wonderful music that I wrote when I was young, that was so successful that people still want to hear it, and I perform it to the best of my abilities. Blah, blah, blah. What I really want now is a couple of moments on the stage in which I have the potential to wreck the whole thing. If I can do that, then Iím happy. Just for a moment.
