Monarchy & Everyday Life »My Favorite Records with Julien Temple

With “The Filth & The Fury” about the Sex Pistols, Julien Temple shot the best music documentary ever for me – with enough insight into the scene (no wonder, as Temple was responsible for the notorious Pistols feature film “The Great Rock’n’Roll” back then Swindle “also responsible), but also the necessary distance and the artistic ability to depict far more than a disdainful” famous people from back then talking into the camera “documentary. With “The Future Is Unwritten” about Joe Strummer and the currently in the cinemas “Shane” about Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan, Temple have made two more remarkable films about the punk scene and its aftermath.

The Kinks. They got there first.

* Your opinion on John Lydon / Johnny Rotten?

I much prefer Johnny Rotten to John Lydon. He was on the right side of history.

Tired of Waiting – The Kinks. This was written in the seemingly endless weeks in early 1965, during Winston Churchill’s terminal illness, when Ray Davies and the rest of England were waiting for him to die.

* Your favourite song last year?

The Girl Can’t Help It (1957)– I just love watching Jane Mansfield turning round corners as she walks. Also because you can tell the movie was directed by a cartoon director, Frank Tashkent. And last but not least because you get to see Little Richard, Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran in their first glorious flush of rebellion.

Don’t Look Back (1965)- Bob Dylan. Because you get to feel like you’re Bob Dylan’s roadie, by his side and watching the whole thing break open as it happened

* The best movie you’ve ever directed?

The next one.

1) Radioactivity – Kraftwerk. He reminds me of hunting in the born-again forests of Chernobyl.

2) Dandy – The German Kinks – a fat German tribute band in Englishfox-hunting jackets that don’t quite fit. Singing in heavy German accents. Priceless!

3) Balls to the Wall – Accept. Not a great song but I have fond memories of directing a video where the lead singer literally rode a wrecking ball into the side of a building. Screeching heavy-metal style while demolishing it. An idea later ripped off by Miley Cyrus!

You Really Got Me – The Kinks. I first heard it aged 11 under the sheets on a crystal set transistor radio and it was like someone had put a dirty nuclear bomb inside my pillow. I’m still processing it nearly 60 years later.
