You know your scene is in vogue when you’re asked to do the soundtrack of a major motion picture. Backbeat was the story of the 5th Beatle, Stuart Sutcliffe, and tells the story of the early Beatles in Hamberg, with the focus of Sutcliffe’s relationship with Astrid Kirchherr. As far as these sort of films go this one is actually quite good. The sound track was provided by the Backbeat band which consisted of a who’s who in the alternative rock world at the time…Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum), Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Don Fleming (Gumball), Mike Mills (R.E.M), and last but not least, Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters). It’s basically a garage rock version of some early Beatles stuff that they often played In Hamberg.
