Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace’s (“Shut Up And Play The Hits”, “Blur: No Distance Left to Run”) latest ‘rockumentary’, “Meet Me in the Bathroom”, inspired by the eponymous book by Lizzy Goodman is all set to release in cinemas tomorrow, 10 March, via Dogwoof. To celebrate the release, CinemaChords brings you an exclusive clip from the documentary, which provides eye-opening insight into how American guitarist James Murphy approached his creative process in the light of how he perceived himself in relation to everyone else in his social circles.
This meticulous investigative documentary takes audiences on an unprecedented journey inside the New York music scene in the early 2000s, featuring never-before-seen footage of legendary artists such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes, Interpol and LCD Soundsystem to provide a intimate and authentic window into the names, faces, voices and atmosphere of one of the most defining eras and places in modern music history. Set against the backdrop of 9/11, the film tells the story of how a new generation ushered in a new era of music for New York City that impacted the entire world.
Meet Me in the Bathroom is constructed entirely from audio interviews and raw, contemporaneous archive; including the personal archives of the featured artists and their contemporaries, found footage, DV tapes unearthed from the shelves and storage units of New York music fans, cultural artefacts of a time and place on the cusp of seismic change.
Meet Me in the Bathroom will release in UK & Irish cinemas from 10th March 2023 and in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned exclusive clip, which is guaranteed to leave you hungry to discover so much more about one of the music industry’s seminal periods.
