Over the last 27 years, some of the biggest names in punk music have trusted a tiny, bare-bones, space in Fort Collins, Colorado to record, mix and master their stuff. The Blasting Room, a new documentary from Static Age Productions and Kreativ Media, tells the story of that legendary studio and is offering exclusive giveaways for music fans who support the film.

In 1994, tired of the polluted, expensive, congested Los Angeles area, members of the band ALL took the advance cash they received from their record label and bought an old furniture warehouse to use as their musical home base. Before long, punk’s biggest acts were sweetening their sounds at the Blasting Room. The documentary features decades of never-before-seen behind-the-scenes photos and video, plus interviews with members of more than 25 groups, including Descendents, ALL, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Good Riddance, NOFX, Less Than Jake, Hot Water Music and Lagwagon.

Beginning Friday, October 29th, fans can get their hands on exclusive merch, rare releases, and signed stuff when they support the film’s Kickstarter campaign. Perks for backers include a brand-new vinyl compilation of favorite recordings from the Blasting Room staff, including an exclusive song by the Descendents only available through the campaign.

“Just like the studio, the documentary is very DIY,” says producer and cinematographer Kevin Kirchner. “With a crew made up of friends and fans of the studio, the production team is counting on music fans to help bring the story to life and put it on the stage it deserves.”​

bbc4 tv tonight, 9pm

Frankenchrist LP at senate hearing @1:22 in Zappa trailer.
watched this tonight. really good, about as much as you could cover in 2 hours.
my favourite person they interviewed was the guy who did the clay animation videos for Frank (sorry I forget his name) absolute genius who makes those Peter Gabriel videos look pitiful.

also saw the Robert Lloyd (Nightingales) one recently, directed by Stewart Lee. they are mates and Stewart featured a lot in it.

DIO: Dreamers Never Die In Cinemas Worldwide Beginning September 28 Tickets and Information at www.DioDreamersNeverDie.com The definitive documentary on legendary metal icon Ronnie James Dio comes to movie theatres around the world for a two-day-only film event. Ronnie James Dio's story transcends the standard rock documentary. Beautifully highlighting both his powerful voice and his gentle heart, “DIO: Dreamers Never Die” delves deep into the singer’s incredible rise from ’50s doo-wop crooner to his early rock days in Elf and Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, to replacing Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath, and finally cementing his rockstar status with his own band, DIO. The first documentary to be authorized by the artist’s estate, the film incorporates never-before-seen footage and personal photos from Dio’s archives as well as offering intimate scenes with his closest peers, family, and friends, among them Wendy Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Glenn Hughes, Vinny Appice, Lita Ford, Rob Halford, Sebastian Bach, Eddie Trunk and Jack Black, as they bring viewers inside the life of one of the most beloved figures in rock.
