The music documentarians discuss piecing together a history of the LES scene which birthed LCD Soundsystem, The Strokes, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
“In mid-2017, journalist Lizzy Goodman wrote perhaps the ultimate tome of the early-00s indie rock renaissance, Meet Me in the Bathroom. A raucous, ultra-comprehensive exploration of the bands, clubs, and promoters which made up New York at the turn of the century. Five years on, Will Lovelace & Dylan Southern, veterans of documentary films on Blur (No Distance Left to Run) and LCD Soundsystem (Shut Up and Play the Hits), have adapted that story for the big screen. On the eve of the film’s release, the pair hopped on Zoom to discuss condensing a 600-page book into a 100-minute feature, the challenges in crafting an archive-based documentary, and grappling with rock’s propensity for mythology.”
