Recorded at the Crossroads Festival in Germany, this concert features a hard-hitting, rebellious performance by the legendary forerunner of punk rock and heavy metal. After nearly 40 years, Edgar Broughton's psychedelic rock-blues band is still performing with original members, plus Edgar's son Luke. Fans of the British group from 1960s and '70s will wax nostalgic over tunes such as "Out Demons Out," "Anthem" and "Evening Over Rooftops."
'The Ambiguity of David Thomas Broughton' is a musical documentary following the creative process of one of the UK’s most enigmatic musicians and performers. As a musical act, David Thomas Broughton is almost unclassifiable. His live shows are a exhilarating mix of musical experimentation and performance art, underlined with a raw unpredictability. His recorded material is dark but beautiful, marrying traditional folk with a surrealist edge. Off-stage, he’s an introvert with a passion for bird watching. Who is the real David Thomas Broughton? Through a series of interviews with friends, family and collaborators, filmmaker Greg Butler attempts to unravel this ambiguity. His journey takes him to David’s home town of Otley, where we track David’s creative process as he records new material to be played at the End of the Road Festival.
A chronicle of the iconoclastic life of gay poet, filmmaker, and spiritual visionary James Broughton, one of the defining voices of the sexual revolution, whose groundbreaking artistic celebrations of sexuality and the body influenced generations of the 1960’s and 70’s to profoundly embrace life and ‘follow your own weird’.
