Mott the Hoople - Ballad of Mott the Hoople DVD

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.

Now available at a much lower price. One of the most important bands of the late 60s and early 70s! The rock act that made a stray Bowie song into an anthem for a generation and beyond! A singer with recognisable hair and ever-present shades! Mott The Hoople are perhaps known to all music fans, but what of their story? The Ballad of Mott the Hoople is a feature length documentary that tells the story of of one of England s most cherished rock n roll bands. The film brings the band s story to life through a stunning combination of rare and unseen archive footage, their magnificent music and the testimony of band members Ian Hunter, Mick Ralphs, Verden Allen, Dale Buffin Griffin, Luther Grosvenor aka Ariel Bender, Morgan Fisher plus other associates and witnesses, including The Clash s Mick Jones, Queen s Roger Taylor and Mott Seadivers fanclub president Kris Needs. Running Time: 101 Minutes. Detailing the whole story up to the band imploding at the height of their fame The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople chronicles and evaluates (in the artists own words) this very unique history and the lasting impression that Mott made on their peers and the younger groups that followed in their wake. It's all here, from their early encounters with the troubled, yet visionary Svengali Guy Stevens, the astounding music which followed to the band s witty, honest and frank recollections of the crazy circumstances that whisked them from Hereford to the bright lights of London, America and world level rock stardom. In 2009 the group reformed to play a reunion show at The Hammersmith Apollo to a packed audience that included such deities as Jimmy Page. The only available film footage of this legendary return to glory is available on this DVD! Although a rock combo that saw guitar gods Mick Ralphs, Ariel Bender and Mick Ronson pass through their ranks, Mott The Hoople never succumbed to guitar histrionics above the substance of songs. Ian Hunter s lyrics combined Dylan s mid-60s poetry with the band s Stonesy vibe, a Velvet Underground sneer and a sound that helped pave the way for the punk movement. Indeed, Crash Street Kidds from 1974 s The Hoople more than hints at what was around the corner! The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople talking head and punk hero, The Clash s Mick Jones, has been quoted saying I suppose my main guitar influences are Mott The Hoople, The Kinks and the Stones. They had attitude and made gawky teenage boys see the possibilities in being different. Morrisey, who pens the sleeve notes for this DVD, is a huge fan. The Ballad Of The Mott The Hoople is not only a fascinating documentary, whose cast are a testament to the music, it is also a heart warming saga of the ascendency and decline of a group who were ploughing a musical landscape across a period in cultural history that was generally breaking new ground. If anything will gain them the lasting respect they deserve it is this thoughtful, provoking and enjoyable film. The DVD includes a 12-page booklet featuring liner notes by Morrissey, a limited edition set of 5-postcards and over one hour of bonus material: DVD Extras/Bonus Features : 1. 2009 Hammersmith Reunion Unseen live footage from the triumphant 40th anniversary at Hammersmith Apollo in 2009 plus much much more
