5.0 out of 5 stars A great purchase for any music fan, 18 Jan 2012
This review is from: Anyone Can Play Guitar (DVD)
Oxford isn't that big a place and yet over the past 20 or so years it's produced a wealth of musical talent, the likes of Ride, Radiohead, Supergrass and more recently Foals have all scaled the charts and the national press but that's only part of the story, there's many more Oxford and Oxford based acts who've more than delivered the musical goods over the years, this film tells the story.

I've spent most of the past 20 years living in Oxford and am familiar with all the bands and the personalities involved, however even if you don't have that close an affinity to Oxford this film will still more than deliver. The guy behind this (Jon Spira) worked tirelessly for a number of years putting the story together to produce a completely independently funded film, the end result is a well produced, well informed and thoroughly enjoyable documentary about the Oxford Music Scene, the stars of this film for me are The Candyskins, Oxford's best kept secret, the band who really should have gone places, I hope the exposure they have got through ACPG will lead people to seek out their 4 fine studio albums, I also hope ACPG will encourage people to seek out the likes of ATL, Swervedriver, Dustball/Dive Dive and The Daisies and seek out the new acts coming through the scene now.

Buy this film, you really won't be disappointed, I've seen it several times already. Good work Mr Spira and fair play the Oxford Music Scene.
