Gonks Go Beat
I was introduced to this track - Harmonica by the Graham Bond Organisation - via the medium of Johnny Alpha's Killer Diller Radio show, but I had no idea it was featured in the film Gonks Go Beat. In fact, I'd never heard of the film - one of the many given the dubious title of 'The worst movie ever'. It looks brilliant.
I saw this clip in the documentary, Beware of Mr Baker, about the English drummer Ginger Baker. I didn't know a lot about Baker, but I've heard plenty of songs he's played on. He features in this clip. He comes across as an arsehole in the documentary, but as I had no previous fondness for him, it made no difference to my enjoyment of it. Not the best rockumentary I've seen (and I love them), but worth it for introducing me to this clip.
Other 'rockumentaries' I love (please recommend ones I've might have missed)
Dig! (Brian Jonestown Massacre/Dandy Warhols)
Some Kind of Monster (Metallica and their shrink)
