| Fantastic portrait of early 70's Stooges (with Iggy!)
This famous documentary broadcast featured several of the era's rowdiest bands. But it was the legendary Stooges who really blew me away the first time I viewed it. Grainy, harsh, intimidating & fun. If you want to learn where true hardcore punk originated you don't have to look any further than this...a timeless performance translated through raw metal mayhem. The first time I viewed the "Midsummer Rock Fest 1970" was in 1999 while visiting my girl in London. We were at a flat gathering on Upper Street, and I'll never forget walking into that little blue room & hearing the early roars & grinds of T.V. Eye (from the Stooges Funhouse album)...I'd tell you more, but that would spoil this tasty & tantalizing flick...especially if you're into proto-punk & the godfather Iggy Pop.
