A highly influential Grunge outfit.
4 December 2019 | by RatedVforVinnySee all my reviews

A straightforward telling of one of the most underrated musical acts. Contains some killer interviews from the band and others connected to the Seattle grunge scene. it sort of plays like a hard luck story and with so many near misses they only managed to make marginal success. Still the music keeps you in an uplifted state and despite their downfall, have still (at least) retained a sense of humour.
