Arthur Russell: Wild Combination

Went to the ICA today to see the Arthur Russell documentary, Wild Combination. Really liked it. I got really emotional towards the end. Had to put up a heroic effort to fight back the tears. All of the video of him was quite affecting as well. It would be hard to do this as well as they did without getting soppy, but they pulled it off really well. It definitely was a bit short on the disco side of things, but I didn’t mind so much. The footage of The Loft was pretty cool. Had no idea there’s still literally thousands of hours of his recordings that have never been released. Would love to hear more of that. Anyway… Iowan boy done good. Out on DVD on November 3.
