Music

View ‘Music’ in the GSA Library Catalogue

As the nights get colder and the weather worsens (even more than normal) it will almost certainly take a lot more persuasion than normal to go out to a see a gig. Luckily we have a good selection of Music DVDs to see you through until Spring!

Transport yourself to New York City and check out Led Zeppelin’s Live Madison Square Garden 1973. Or if you’re more into the quiet stuff we have the touching Nick Drake documentary A Skin Too Few that explores his battles with depression and the impact of it on his music; music that has only gained widespread recognition in the years since his death. The Neil Young documentary Don’t Be Denied tells the story of the legendary Canadian musician’s career and shows a fascinating insight into his working practices and beliefs about music. The extraordinary documentary Dig looks at the relationship between two alternative rock bands of the 1990’s- The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols as their careers take markedly different trajectories- the latter achieving widespread commercial success while the former embark on a succession of car-crash shows and industry-alienating stunts. Also worth a look: The Devil and Daniel Johnston;  Let’s Get Lost about legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker and Searching for Sugarman about the mysterious Detroit songwriter Rodriguez who found extraordinary success in South Africa while remaining virtually unknown everywhere else.
