George spoke with Eric Steuer about one of his favorite docs, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP (2010). The only film credited to Banksy, Exit Through The Gift Shop tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a self-taught street artist/documentarian who ends up becoming the subject of the film.

ROCKTOBER continues with TONY CONRAD: COMPLETELY IN THE PRESENT. George visits director Tyler Hubby at his Echo Park home. Tyler spent over twenty years following Tony Conrad and decided to put it all into one documentary encompassing Conrad’s life and art, as if there were a distinction between the two. We also talk about punk rock and mental illness, Tony Labat, getting multiple angles for beer, Faust, Bad Brains, Tony as Tupac, Crispin Glover, water polo, and mashing up different video formats.

George and Paco visit with actress/improviser/musician Tawny Newsome to discuss her experience cosplaying STOP MAKING SENSE-era Talking Heads for Documentary Now and in a Talking Heads cover band. We talk about Second City, her projects with Jon Langford (Mekons, Skull Orchard), the WOOZ of Vacaville, and recording with the legendary Muscle Shoals Swampers!

Part 2 of our talk about D Tour (2009), George interviews drummer Pat Spurgeon, the subject of the documentary. We learn about Pat’s early life as a musician moving from Bloomington to the Bay Area, waiting for organ transplants, and dealing with the medical system while touring in Rogue Wave. Though D Tour has the shape of a music documentary, it’s about dealing with healthcare, mortality, and humor.
