Happy International LOUIE LOUIE Day!
It’s been awhile since we’ve shared any status updates on the LOUIE documentary, so here’s a little rundown of what’s been going on…
FIRST of all, the film is still being assembled. Most of the principal photography has been completed, but there are still a few interviews we’re hoping […]
I’m very excited about the new documentary that Alex Winter is producing on Frank Zappa.
Would you believe this project is the highest-funded documentary ever on Kickstarter? … and the Kickstarter campaign is ending in 30 hours!
While I may be somewhat jealous, and I am also in complete awe over the fact that this […]
I am in awe of Girl Trouble!
(The band, not the actual concept…)
I can’t remember the first time I ever witnessed the band in concert… whether it was at Marsugi’s, the Cactus Club, Paradise Lounge or maybe even Upstairs Eulipia, but it was during one of their visits to the SF bay area […]
I’m saddened to hear that Malik Bendjelloul, director of the “Searching For Sugar Man” documentary has passed away at the age of 36 years old. I thought he did a remarkable job of telling the story of musician Sixto Diaz Rodriguez.
If you haven’t seen it, I would highly recommend checking it out.
Back in November, we learned about a special video and performance of THE SONG by the band known as The Cry!, featuring Mike Mitchell of the Kingsmen. This version was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Kingsmen’s iconic recording.
Three months later, we’ve got another very special LOUIE LOUIE video from The Cry! […]
If I were in the Seattle area this weekend, I would definitely be at the Highway 99 Blues Club on Sunday night.
Photographer Jini Dellaccio is the subject of a new documentary entitled “Her Aim Is True,” and Sunday is the big night for a benefit concert featuring Northwest music legends Merrilee Rush, Buck […]
For those that love album cover artwork, I’d like to recommend a new documentary entitled “The Cover Story.”
Artists, photographers, models and musicians share some great stories behind the process of creating artwork for various album covers. There’s a lot of famous creative people in this documentary, and there’s also some relative […]
It’s time for a little non-LOUIE news on the LOUIE REPORT blog…
Back in 2008, i worked with my friend, Emmy-award winner Alison Victor to co-produce / co-direct a short documentary about a blind sailor’s quest to use technology to see. The film entitled “Ed’s Inner Space,” had a special premiere at YURI’S NIGHT, […]
This week of musical casualties began with the death of a pirate.
Terry Dolan, of the band Terry & the Pirates, passed away on January 15 at the age of 67.
My first exposure to Terry & the Pirates came about via a record store I used to frequent during my high school years. […]
Today, I’m saddened to report another casualty in the music universe.
Larry “Wild Man” Fischer, as far as I know, didn’t record LOUIE LOUIE, nor did he have any obvious connections to the song.
Wild Man Fischer, was however, the very first musician to record for Rhino Records. The first release was a […]
