Almost criminal that this band wasn't huge but there are many examples of those who should have had it all only to fade to cult, inspiration or oblivion. Chris Bell and Alex Chilton were both ahead of their time but left some incredible music behind and even if this documentary doesn't fully capture their legacies it at least exposes them to another generation of music and/or film fans. Enjoy and revel in the sound.
