I'm looking to kill some time with some music documentaries. It can be about any band/record label/genre, as long as it's interesting

Lately I've been getting into footwork music and this documentary really shed some light on such a seemingly small but very interesting scene. It's well worth the watch imo :)

Here's another one I really like. Somewhat related to the footwork doc as Planet Mu released a lot of footwork records in the UK, helping them become popular outside of Chicago. Planet Mu also releases music for Venetian Snares among other artists, so they have a bit of a special place in my heart :)

not necessarily a band or a doc but this gdc panel where mick gordon goes on detail about the doom 2016 soundtrack is really interesting even if youre not a composer or something

The Wrecking Crew is an insane documentary on the titular group of relatively unknown session musicians who more or less singlehandedly shaped the sound of 20th century music as we know it.

Stop Making Sense (Talking Heads) is the weirdest, most interesting and non sequitur concert movie you will ever see.

Less impacting but interesting nonetheless -- Stewart Copeland, the drummer for The Police (who, fun fact, also wrote and produced the original Spyro soundtrack) wrote and presented a cool documentary on the history of the drumset. it's on youtube somewhere.

this is a 2 hour edit of a documentary that was originally 10.5 hours long about Horse the Band, a nintendocore band that figured they should play 45 different countries in 90 days all over the globe.

doc on legendary 90s indie rock band Pavement made at the end of their era
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dl3wwU2GjWs

cool short look into the sound sculptures of italian-american artist Harry Bertoia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9EF_zO5ihs

very well put-together and remarkably in-depth look into the early career of Art Pop and Ambient legend Brian Eno (on Amz Prime)
https://www.amazon.com/Brian-Eno-1971-1977-Fell-Earth/dp/B0794KSMDT

if you dont have Prime here's a wonderful Eno interview instead
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxDdZ3vRZwc

and of course Chris Ott's sometimes cynical but always passionate Shallow Rewards series

This doc provides some backstory on the creation of The Cold Vein - Cannibal Ox. If you like El-P then you get to see interviews he gave in 2002 in this one

I don't if someone posted it, but i heard this band created a cult inspired by a bandmate's suicide, and the cult would commit crimes/murders and stuff.
