A new documentary which aims to chart the history of New York’s rock ‘n’ roll revival of the 2000’s is set to be released.
Based upon Lizzy Goodham’s renowned 600 page tome on the subject entitled “Meet Me in the Bathroom: Rebirth and Rock & Roll in NYC 2001-2011, this new accompaniment is expected to be comprised of four one-hour instalments that capture the essence of this revolutionary scene that inspired a generation of budding artists that had grown disillusioned with the marginalisation of rock ‘n’ roll in the mainstream and were clamouring for something new and vital.
After the rights to the book had been acquired by Pulse Films; the very team behind other seminal music documentaries including Arcade Fire’s The Reflektor Tapes and Nick Cave’s heartwrenching examination of love and loss that was last year’s ‘One More Time With Feeling’, it has now been revealed that the directorial team behind LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Shut Up And Play The Hits’ will also be at the helm of the film.
Commenting on the finalisation of the project, Author Goodham has stated that:
“At various points during the six long years it took to bring Meet Me in the Bathroom to life, it occurred to me what an incredible documentary this would make. At the time it seemed like a total fantasy but it now feels like fate that the team behind Shut Up and Play the Hits, the show that gave me the idea to write this book in the first place, would be the ones to bring Meet Me in the Bathroom to the screen.”
