Rock documentaries are a dime a dozen. Here are three choice cuts featuring bands from the UK
Almost Fashionable: A Film About Travis (2018)
This documentary sees music critic Wyndham Wallace following Travis on their tour in Mexico while interviewing the band, fans and other music journalists. The kicker is that Wallace doesn’t actually fancy these Sco ish lads – Travis is his least favourite band. As far as band documentaries go, this is about as far from the selfcongratulatory (read: masturbatory) type as you can get.
No Distance Le To Run (2010)
Graham Coxon’s depa ure from Blur broke our hea s years back, and for the longest time we only had Sweet Song to cling on to. The band finally got back together in 2009 for a tour, with No Distance Le To Run documenting its reunion and subsequent gigs with new and archival footage. Far from being just a tour video diary, this film marks an impo ant chapter in Blur’s history.
Oasis: Supersonic (2016)
Even if the Gallagher brothers were to miraculously make up today and head back into the recording studio, they’ll probably struggle to replicate the success that they enjoyed in the early- to mid-1990s. Supersonic looks at the band’s initial years and meteoric rise to superstardom, and offers what’s perhaps the best memories of the band at its creative peak.
