Youth - Sketch, Drugs And Rock’n’Roll DVD review
Documentary about Killing Joke bassist turned producer.
The title of this documentary might be a little bit misleading. As misleading, in fact, as the moniker of the 55-year-old Martin Glover, aka Youth. This book is no salacious trawl through the sleazy demi-monde of post-punk, but a thoughtful profile of a producer and his singular philosophy which has seen him work with artists ranging from Jaz Coleman to Embrace, Boy George and The Orb to David Gilmour and Paul McCartney (with whom he comprised the duo The Fireman), all of whom are interviewed here, with Macca recalling his initial shock that when he put out an album anonymously it sold just 500 copies.
