Scarce documentary previewed
We have fond memories of Scarce, to the extent that the fact they're playing again is more interesting than, oh, the Pavement thing. But what do we know anyways?
They play Nottingham, Manchester, Glasgow and London from tomorrow (Tuesday 13th).
Days Like These is the story of the rise and fall, and rise again of the band Scarce. Admired by musicians and fans alike for their unique brand of rock and roll and blistering live performances, they appeared destined for stardom before tragedy struck and a brain aneurysm left guitarist Chick Graning fighting for his life. Fast forward 10 years and Scarce are back to prove their passion still resonates today.
The biopic contains never seen before footage of Scarce including studio sessions, archive and early footage, interviews with Scarce disciples such as Kristin Hersh (Throwing Muses), Joe Lally (Fugazi), friends and fans new and old, and Industry cohorts that never stopped believing in Scarce.
Sally Irvine's film is a celebration of Scarce, past, present and future.
All we need now is a Sweet Jesus movie and we'll be happy!
