Year: 2016 Director: Paul Elliott & Sean Lambeth
Martin Glover, aka Youth – a man of many parts – founder of and bassist with Killing Joke, poet, songwriter, artist, remixer, producer….the list goes on.
This intriguing documentary follows the man over an eighteen-month period, travelling with him in his trusty VW camper van, working in the recording stidio and pursuing his interest in painting.
It gives a very interesting insight into the man and his methods through extensive interviews with him and with the likes of Paul McCartney, Dave Gilmour, Jaz Coleman, Alex Paterson and Boy George to name but a few.
Studio sessions, smoke filled rooms and a steady stream of anecdotes keep the film moving along, as Youth recounts tales from his earliest days through to working with some of the biggest names in rock.
Might appeal to people who enjoyed:
This is a really interesting watch if you’re a fan of Youth or of rock documentaries in general – and as a bonus it has a fantastic soundtrack from Killing Joke and also features a treasure trove of unreleased material from Youth himself.
