Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll Magazine
“Vintage Rock fans will be in (cough) high heaven.” -Variety
“Rowdy… incredible” -Rolling Stone
Ripping back the curtain on legendary Rock rag CREEM Magazine’s wild and disruptive newsroom; a dysfunctional band of unruly outsiders who weren’t all that different from the artists they covered.
Capturing the messy upheaval of the ’70s just as Rock was re-inventing itself, this documentary film explores CREEM Magazine’s humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, follows its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse, then bears witness to its imminent demise following the tragic and untimely deaths of its visionary publisher, Barry Kramer, and its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs, a year later. Fifty years after publishing its first issue, America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine remains a seditious spirit in music and culture.
