‘Mem..’…….really. after all the emails, trailers, actual mither of waiting - i’m a bit let down by the creation dvd. an amazing story to be told but it all seems rushed. in comparison i finally got round to watching ‘punk: attitude’ last weekend – never been desperate as surely no more need be said on it’s subject? wrong – it’s properly ace; history retold fascinatingly. made ‘upside down’ seem not exactly disappointing, just unfulfilling. as books go, the creation story told in ‘my magpie eyes are…’ is thick. so where’s the dvd beef? (i have no idea why i’ve typed that).
most of the artists in creations’ history are fascinating – deserve a fuller, more colourful, rambling treatment.
it does at least close on a pretty amazing late j&mc track. and not fucking mishka.
